International Congress in Spirituality and Psychiatry 4th Global Meeting in Spirituality and Mental Health
International Congress in Spirituality and Psychiatry 4th Global Meeting in Spirituality and Mental Health is organized by Target Conferences Ltd, World Psychiatric Association (WPA) Section on Religion, Spirituality and Psychiatry and will be held from Dec 01 - 04, 2019 at Mishkenot Sha'ananim, Jerusalem, Israel.
Spirituality/Religion (S/R) is relevant to most of the human beings, 84% of the world's population reports a religious affiliation. Systematic reviews of the academic literature have identified literally thousands of empirical studies showing the relationship (usually positive but also negative) between S/R and health. However, there has been world wide a huge gap between knowledge available about the impact of S/R to health and the translation of this knowledge to the actual clinical practice and public health policies. Given this, the WPA recently published a Position Statement on Spirituality and Religion in Psychiatry emphasizing the importance of integrating S/R in clinical practice, research and education in Psychiatry. This Congress will focus on practical implications, on how to sensibly and effectively integrate S/R in mental health care and public policies.
