The Second International Congress on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Iran (February 2005)
In the aftermath of the destructive earthquake in Bam, Iran, in December 2003, the second “International Congress on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry” adopted the cognitive psychological impact of such massive natural disasters on children and adolescents as one of its central themes. Held in Tehran, February 14-17, 2005, the congress discussed, among other topics, “Psychological Consequences of Trauma in Children,” and “Psychological Interventions in Traumatized Children of Bam Earthquake.”
There were eight workshops organized simultaneously on the side of the congress, which included a topic like “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Children with PTSD.” Among the keynote speakers was Marilyn B. Benoti (M.D., Georgetown University, USA), who spoke on “Neurobiological Sequels of Traumatic Stress.” A total of 110 papers and abstracts were submitted to the four-day congress.
The Second International Cognitive Science Conference in Iran (February 2003)
