Spirituality/Religion & Mental Health: Translating knowledge to practice - Building bridges

 

Spirituality/Religion is relevant to most of human beings, 84% of 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 Spirituality/Religion and health. However, there has been world wide a huge gap between

knowledge available about the impact of Spirituality/Religion 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 Spirituality/Religion in clinical practice, research and education in Psychiatry. This Congress will

focus on practical implications, on how to sensibly and effectively integrate Spirituality/Religion in mental

health care and public policies.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU TO JERUSALEM!
