3rd International Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychology Congress

Dear Colleagues,

Our first two congresses, in 2020 and 2021, were held online with 45 speakers from 10 different countries, in cooperation with Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul Rumeli University and Child Family Development and Education Foundation (ÇAGEV), with the topics "Families in Clinical Studies" and "Trauma".

The focus of this year's congress, which we have carefully prepared on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of our Republic, will be "Destructiveness". We aim to think, talk and share researches about destructiveness in sub-titles such as dealing with destructiveness in depth in psychotherapy approaches, preventive studies (early childhood and school) in children and adolescents with destructive behaviors, self-destructiveness, the effect of the digital world, psychoeducational processes and the transformative effect of group therapies.

The 3rd Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychology Congress will be held online (Zoom) in November 3rd-5th 2023.
The languages of the congress are Turkish and English, and Turkish translation will be provided for foreign speakers.

We invite you, our esteemed colleagues, to our congress to think, understand and transform the issue of "Destructiveness", which originates from our most basic impulses and confronts us in many areas of life.

On behalf of the congress organizing committee,
