Together with our valued member society, the Psychiatric Association of Thailand, and supported by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Thailand and Department of Mental Health, Thailand, WPA looks forward to welcoming you to the 22nd WPA World Congress of Psychiatry - a hybrid congress experience held in person in Bangkok, Thailand and Online.
We are excited that most of you will be undoubtedly willing to travel and meet us in Bangkok for the congress. However, for those of you who might not be able to take the trip, we do not want you to miss out on our excellent scientific program, meeting world leaders in the industry, and establishing new professional relationships, and therefore we will be offering you an opportunity to join us virtually. Thus, we are planning an exciting and rich physical congress accompanied by an inspiring online experience.
We welcome you to Bangkok, to be able to, at long last, interact face-to-face with other participants, exchange views, and network. Those attendees participating from remote will be able to enjoy live-streamed sessions, directly from the congress, in real-time. Abstract presentations, both free communications and e-posters, will be available on-demand.
The WPA is psychiatry's global association representing 140 psychiatric societies in 120 countries and supporting more than 250,000 psychiatrists. With its 70 Scientific Sections, it promotes collaborative work in specialist areas of psychiatry.
WCP22 is your ticket to join a community and connect online with industry professionals for four days of dynamic exchanges via networking opportunities, guaranteed to leave you well-equipped, energized, and ready to revitalize your career. Viewers will be among the first to hear from the experts about emerging data and analytics trends while expanding their network and gaining new insights from those who face similar challenges.
Furthermore, whether your contribution is in the field of psychopathology, biologic psychiatry, pharmacotherapy, psychiatric training, psychotherapy, social psychiatry, rehabilitation, prevention, or services organization, it will surely be an opportunity to share our knowledge.
We are particularly excited to be hosting such a significant event in Asia. The diversity of the region encourages richness and diversity in the program, with opportunities to explore how we work in scarce resource versus high-income settings, and how we can share best practices across settings of all kinds across the world. We will review the 2017-2020 Action Plan and delve into its themes of collaboration, reaching those living with adversity, and the rich and varying ways in which the role of a psychiatrist can be legitimately expressed. We will investigate how the time-honored approaches and the newest techniques in psychiatry - including those in psychotherapies, neuromodulation, pharmacology, digital technologies, and social therapies - can be used practically to support people affected by mental ill-health, their families and friends, and community groups. These groups will join researchers and mental health professionals to consider advocacy, planning, and policymaking across sectors to promote the advancement of psychiatry and mental health in all countries.
Bangkok is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Asia. In addition to attending high-quality scientific deliberations, you will have the chance to enjoy this beautiful part of the world which has been consistent, over the last several years, coming as one of the most favorite travel destinations for its amazing historical patrimony, culture, natural wonders, and the warm-welcoming Colombian, Latin, Central and South American people.
Join colleagues and thought leaders from across the globe for learning, sharing, and networking.
We look forward to seeing you in Bangkok and Online!
Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
