7th European Congress
on Violence in Clinical Psychiatry

“Challenges for care and treatment”


Dear Colleagues,

The 7th European Congress on Violence is a WPA co-sponsored meeting and co-organized by the European Violence in Psychiatry Research Group (EViPRG). The congress will focus strongly on clinically relevant and practically useful interventions aiming at treating and reducing violent behaviour of psychiatric and forensic patients. However this time the focus is also on severe problem behaviour in persons with intellectually disability. Hence the overall congress theme “challenges for care and treatment”. Click here for the subthemes.

This congress has been approved by the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) for the award of a maximum of 20 Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credits, and approval for awarding is currently being sought for Continuing Nursing Education Credits (ICNECs) from the International Council of Nurses (ICN)

We invite psychiatric clinicians, psychiatrists, practitioners, psychiatric mental health nurses, psychologists, health scientists, educators, trainers, researchers, managers, and policymakers engaged in the management, study or treatment of aggressive behaviour of psychiatric patients and/or persons with intellectual disabilities and serious behavioural problems to register and attend the 7th European Congress on Violence in Clinical Psychiatry
