ESCAP Kongress 20192019-03-06T10:12:47+00:00

Internationaler Kongress der ESCAP 2019 in Wien

Child and adolescent psychiatrists, mental health professionals and researchers will be strolling along the very corridors where the glamourous Sisi – the empress Elisabeth of Austria – spent her Habsburg court life, by the end of the nineteenth century. The 2019 ESCAP Congress will occupy Sisi’s premises for a few days to explore ‘Developmental psychiatry in a globalized world’: the congress theme for the next ESCAP conference.

“The Vienna congress will express how strongly child and adolescent psychiatry is linked to society, and how treatment is affected by knowledge sharing across our borders”, says professor Andreas Karwautz (Medical University of Vienna), co-organizer of the 2019 ESCAP conference on behalf of the Austrian Society of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy (ÖGKJP). “The event will also focus on the rich Austrian history in child and adolescent psychiatry.
