2018 Conference on Transdiagnostic Approaches to Mental Health Challenges
17-18 September 2018
The meeting will bring together clinicians and researchers who are interested in a transdiagnostic approach to understanding, classifying and treating mental health challenges.
In particular, we aim to address the challenge of translating the basic transdiagnostic science and classification of mental health into clinical assessment and intervention.
The Conference itself will be held at the Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge, 15 Chaucer Road, CB2 7EF.
A dinner will be held at Downing College on the evening of the 17th of September.
The conference will include a single stream of Keynotes, open paper slots, rapid talks and a poster session.
Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
Prof. David Barlow, Boston University, USA
Dr. Jill Newby, The University of New South Wales, Australia
Prof. David Watson, University of Notre Dame, USA
Prof. Roz Shafran, University College London, UK
We are excited to make available the draft programme for the 2018 Conference on Transdiagnostic Approaches to Mental Health Challenges.
