The International College of Psychosomatic Medicine and its affiliated journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics are launching a new type of meeting, that substantially departs from conventional initiatives in the field: the first meeting of the Workgroup on Psychosomatic Research and Practice. The first day is concerned with clinical assessment in psychosomatic practice. The second day deals with research and organizational issues of psychosomatic consultation services. After an interactive lecture, participants will be assigned to small groups, each facilitated by two experienced psychosomatic researchers. In the group participants will have the opportunity to present an investigation or a clinical case and get feedback about them. Groups will be put together according to the fields of interest. Each participant will have the opportunity to submit one abstract to be published. Working together with psychosomatic masters may allow to switch gears in clinical practice and academic career.
If you are interested in joining the ICPM, there are important advantages by doing this. The International College of Psychosomatic Medicine (ICPM) is an international organization which was founded in the seventies and continues its effort to support research and the practice of psychosomatic medicine throughout the world. First you will join a dynamic group of clinicians and researchers, getting the status of Fellow and, if requirements are met, also of Psychosomatic Specialist. Second, you may receive the affiliated journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, the home of innovations at the interface between behavioral and medical sciences. Finally, you may enjoy highly preferential rates for meetings, seminar and congresses like this 2016 Lisbon workgroup meeting.
With warm regards,
