Welcome Address

Dear colleagues,


We are very happy to invite you to the upcoming 18th Congress of the "European Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (ESCAP)" in the Imperial Palace - Hofburg in the city centre of Vienna from June 30 to July 2, 2019.


ESCAP jointly organizes this congress with the “Verein zur Förderung der Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie in Österreich (ÖVF-KJPP)” on behalf of the “Austrian Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics, and Psychotherapy (ÖGKJP)” in Vienna. We combine our efforts from all over Europe and abroad to shape a program covering a wide range of topics appealing to both clinicians and researchers. We wish to stimulate exchange based on novel research and treatments.


Vienna has been a multi-cultural city for centuries with an outstanding history in psychiatry and psychotherapy rendering the city an ideal location for this international meeting of child and adolescent mental health professionals.


The program will particularly focus on the development of etiological, diagnostic, and treatment related aspects of mental disorders and symptoms in young people. A major global challenge is to shape developmentally based multimodal treatments and prevention strategies for children and adolescents in multiethnic societies. Child and adolescent psychiatry needs to provide answers within this world of change and challenges.


Seize the opportunity of attending a conference in the middle of historic Vienna in walking distance to all important sights.


Welcome to Vienna!


Prof. Andreas Karwautz,
Congress President
ESCAP Vienna 2019
