WAIMH World Congress 2018

Sat, 26 May 2018 – Wed, 30 May 2018

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 16th World Congress of the World Association for Infant Mental Health from the 26th – 30th May 2018 in Rome, Italy.

We are delighted that a WAIMH Congress will be held in our country for the first time!

The very theme of the Congress, “Nature<>Nurture – challenges for a 3rd millennium Infant Mental Health” indicates that, while knowledge on the basic determinants of child development is increasingly accurate and sophisticated, each of us bears the responsibility to promote, protect and guarantee a development that is human under every respect.

From the possibilities provided by genetic engineering to the ongoing tragedy affecting migrant children and their families, we have to be ready to act in favour of the best interest of children in the light of both scientific knowledge and ethical awareness.

With its unparalled historical, cultural and spiritual heritage Rome will pleasantly host us, uncovering all its magic during the best time of the year with sunny and mild weather. We hardly doubt that many of you will take the chance for a longer staying in Rome and in our country – another reason why the Congress cannot be missed!

While some of the most prominent figures in Infant Mental Health will join our plenary speakers addressing key topics particularly relevant for the Congress’ theme, we really look forward to receiving many contributions from all of you in order to enjoy a rich and articulated final scientific programme.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Rome in 2018!
