International Conference on Transcultural Psychiatry, 13-16 June 2010

“Migration, next generations and the future of psychiatry”

In our changing societies mental health professionals are facing the limitations of traditional classification systems, concepts and therapeutic repertoires. They are challenged to develop new conceptual approaches and treatment methods to enhance mental health and well-being, and to provide care to migrants and their offspring. In order to deal with the societal changes and their influence on clients and communities we need to reflect on our clinical practices, our research agenda and maybe also on the position of mental health workers in the public debate. This conference addresses issues deducted from this theme, and discusses them in relation with mental health care on the conference symposia and workshops.
