Description


'The theme of the 18th World Congress of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions - IACAPAP - is 'Carrying Hope Between East and West for 3 C's: Children, Cultures, Commitments'. The aim of the congress book, to be presented in Istanbul in the Spring of 2008, is to focus interest on the effects of turmoil on children. It is necessary that mental health professionals start to plan how to meet children of immigrants and refugees and to develop the necessary services and methods to support those coming with a burden of psychiatric need.' Per-Anders Rydelius, M.D., Ph.D.
