The European Association of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Treatment (EACLPT) was founded in 2017 with the goal to promote European collaborations on research, education and treatment of mental health problems. In 2019, the association’s first congress will take place to foster such collaborations from October 31st to November 2nd in Dresden, Germany, with pre-conference sessions from Tuesday 29.10.2019 till Thursday 31.10.2019 and post-conference sessions on Sunday 03.11.2019. 

It will be the first international meeting in the field of clinical psychology at a European level.


The conference theme “No Health without Mental Health - European Clinical Psychology Takes Responsibility” expresses our goal to move mental health into societal focus. Mental disorders are among the most debilitating conditions and clinical psychology offers a wide range of preventive and therapeutic interventions. Discussing these, as well as underlying etiological models will be at the heart of the conference. Keynote speakers include Claudi Bockting, Susan Bögels (University of Amsterdam), David Clark (University of Oxford), Stefan Hofmann (Boston University) and Maria Karekla (University of Cyprus).


We invite submissions for symposia and poster presentations on the full range of clinical psychological research: diagnostics and classification, psychological and psychobiological mechanisms, psychological treatments, prevention and rehabilitation. We particularly encourage early career researchers to join the conference. Targeted pre-conference workshops, mentoring and financial support can be offered.


The conference will be a unique chance to discuss current challenges for mental health in Europe and initiate collaborations and joint projects with colleagues from all over the continent. We are looking forward to seeing you in Dresden!
