Philosophical Issues in Psychiatry VI

Causal Concepts in Psychopathology: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

International conference

15-17 May 2023

University of Copenhagen (Panum), "Henrik Dam" Auditorium

Blegdamsvej 3b, 2200 Copenhagen N

For the sixth conference in this series, we will explore causality in psychiatric research and practice, a topic that has not been a focus of any of the earlier conferences. Causality cuts across many areas of psychiatry, from the purely conceptual/philosophical level to the interpretation of genetic, epidemiological, neurobiological and clinical research.
