Valencia, with over 2000 years of history, is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Europe thanks to its impressive artistic heritage. The city boasts architectural gems such as the Cathedral, the Silk Exchange, the Church of San Nicolás, or the Basilica of Our Lady of the Forsaken, coexisting with the most avant-garde city, where the City of Arts and Sciences stands out, a work by the renowned Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava. Valencia enchants with its gastronomy, famous “paella,” and numerous terraces that allow you to enjoy its warm climate for much of the year.

Valencia has been chosen to host the 9th International Congress of Clinical and Health Psychology in Children and Adolescents. Choosing the “City of Light” as the location for our annual meeting is no coincidence. We want to offer the best welcome to the numerous attendees who come every year to learn and share experiences, taking part of this wonderful profession that unites us. Three intense days will help us learn about the latest advances in psychological evaluation and treatment and establish networks of contacts with professionals and academics who share the idea that together, child psychology advances at a better pace. La Nau, a historic building that will be the venue for the congress, will welcome us warmly and witness that psychology can provide efficient solutions to the problems that affect children and adolescents today.

As every year, we have curated a program that will address current issues with the participation of notable figures from our field of expertise. We are looking forward to meeting you at this congress, where science and unforgettable moments merge. A congress where we value our profession and take pride in dedicating our time and effort to our shared goal of improving the mental health of children and adolescents.

Dear friends, we see you in Valencia.
