Welcome to Scandinavia's largest and longest-running multi-disciplinary mental health conference!

After a long period of uncertainty, delay and disruption, we're finally looking forward to meeting you in person at the 2021 conference! We've invited the most prominent experts in the field, internationally and nationally, to enlighten us on the subject of ourselves as therapists and on the work that we do.  

Our talks and workshops will be happening as scheduled. We're counting on live participation being possible, and will be adhering strictly to all infection control measures and requirements.

The social and cultural programmes will provide us with many longed-for opportunities to meet, share, learn, laugh, and enjoy :-) Do you, your colleagues or employees need something to look forward to? Then all you have to do is register!

Louis Theroux's coming to Schizofrenidagene!

We're delighted to announce that the British documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux is coming to Stavanger in November to close this year's conference. In conversation with psychiatrist Finn Skårderud he'll be exploring many of the values that he shares with us therapists: openness, compassion and curiosity.

Look forward to seeing you there!
