WPA International Congress (Zone 8) - Future Psychiatry: Challenges and Opportunities 2013

  • Conference Call
  • It is an honor and plea­sure for the World Psy­chi­a­try Asso­ci­a­tion (WPA) to invite you to join us to the WPA Inter­na­tional Con­gress 2013 enti­tled “Future Psy­chi­a­try: Chal­lenges and Oppor­tu­ni­ties” that will take place in Vienna, Aus­tria on Octo­ber 27 – 30, 2013.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    A psy­chi­a­try, which places the human being at the cen­tre of its diag­no­sis and ther­apy and which is not reduced to con­ven­tional indi­ca­tion med­i­cine with its main focus on ill­ness con­structs, will pri­mar­ily take into account in its treat­ment plan­ning the var­i­ous phys­i­cal, psy­chic and social patho­genetic fac­tus in the patients’ par­tic­u­lar life stage. Such a human-​based psy­chi­a­try will be able to refer not exclu­sively to evidence-​based med­ical data – no mat­ter how essen­tial this remains as the foun­da­tion stone of ratio­nal ther­apy design – but will also have to include in its reme­dies knowl­edge which extends beyond med­i­cine and psy­chi­a­try in the nar­rower sense. The result­ing com­plex­ity of psy­chi­atric diag­nos­tics and treat­ment will be the main focus of our WPA – Con­fer­ence in Vienna.

    The sci­en­tific dis­cus­sions should bring about and pro­mote the fur­ther devel­op­ment of a psy­chi­a­try which once again cen­ters on the whole per­son, a human-​based psy­chi­a­try which extends beyond med­ical con­di­tions and clin­i­cal pic­tures and where the human being again becomes the mea­sure of all things.
