Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the EAACP members in Korea, we would like to officially invite you to attend and participate at the “16th EAACP Symposium – Mental Health Issues on Refugees and Foreigners” on November 8-10, 2018.

The conference will be held at #101 Global Center, Seoul National University College of Medicine (71 Ihwajang-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03087, Korea) near Seoul National University Hospital.

The purpose of the 3-day conference is to bring together EAACP members, who have achieved great scholarly researches and played significant roles for the society and academia for many decades, and let them share various meaningful ideas and studies related to “Mental Health Issues on Refugees and Foreigners”.

I cordially ask you to send us your great researches or presentation files on “Mental Health Issues on Refugees and Foreigners.” Although Far East has been relatively free from the hardship related to this issues since the Vietnamese War, it still has vivid traumatic memory originated from Korean War, the Second World War and other political tragedies. Studying the psycho-social issues on this subject, EAACP members will have valuable insights to contribute meaningful things for the psychiatrists as well as whole society.
