Welcome message from the chair of the organizing committee
Dear colleagues and friends:
Welcome to the 7th International Congress of Clinical and Health Psychology in Children and Adolescents. After an especially difficult year 2020, we walk through this year 2021 with the prudence of finding ourselves still immersed in a health crisis, but with the hope and desire to be closer and closer to saying goodbye to this pandemic that has changed our lives.
This year, valuing everyone’s health as a priority and counting on the pleasant experience of last year, we once again hold the congress online, offering you a high-quality scientific program in which we will learn about child psychology with the most relevant figures of the moment. Continuing our training and sharing scientific advances is now more relevant than ever. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of protecting the mental health of children and adolescents, detecting and intervening competently in the psychological problems that they may manifest. If we have learned anything during these months, it is the need for well-trained professionals who can offer their patients the effective treatments that science provides to us. We hope that the program that we present to you contributes to that goal and that, one more year, we will be able to bring together the best of scientific psychology in this meeting that is already an unavoidable appointment for many of us.
We thank all of you who are part of this congress, as speakers or attendees, and Ediciones Pirámide, Ediciones TEA, and Pearson, which help us to continue organizing this forum each year. Thanks also to the support of the General Council of Psychology, RED Infancia and the Spanish Academy of Psychology.
We look forward to seeing you.
