WPA Inter Zonal Congress 2017
The WPA Inter Zonal Congress will be held in Vilnius, Lithuania, from 3 to 6 May 2017 and the College encourages its members to attend this important event.
The theme of this years Congree is ‘Changing Society, Changing Psychiatry and Changing Self’. This international event aims to explore concepts, controversies and consequences of Psychiatry’s responsibility and accountability to society in terms of its scope of practice and of what can be considered as Psychiatry’s social contract. It is expected to attract psychiatrists and other mental health professionals from around the world in order to bring together diverse knowledge and professional expertise.
Lithuania, located at the crossroads between the East and the West and between the North and the South of Europe, is influenced by many cultures and has been subjected to a long often traumatic history. With the challenges of re-establishing democracy, building a functioning economy and ensuring equal standards of living for all persons regardless of nationality or religion, the country is a showcase of psychiatric issues hence there is no better location to hold this WPA Inter Zonal Congress.
Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, charms with its labyrinthine, UNESCO renowned Old Town, sleek business district, an elegant city centre with many open squares and parks, as well as historic suburbs. To have a better understanding about the country there will be a rich social program. During the Congress there will be time to experience Lithuania’s culture, heritage, food and many other pleasant activities.
