Dear Forced Migration Mail List team, 

I'm writing as the Conference Coordinator of the International Society for Health and Human Rights (ISHHR). The 10th ISHHR Conference will take place between the 26th-29th September 2017 in the Serbian city of Novi Sad. 

The title of the 2017 ISHHR Conference is “Mental health, mass people displacement and ethnic minorities” and it will focus on the displacement of communities as a result of conflict, the phenomenon of mass-traumatisation and the response of the European neighbourhood to the current emergency. That being said, ISHHR also welcomes contributions from experts and speakers in Latin America, Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, as mass people displacement and migration is a global challenge.

While the event is targeted at psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors and other support workers, the conference also aims to build the capacity of medical doctors, researchers, advocates, journalists, students and individuals working in the field of refugee support, civil society and community development.

The first two days of the event will consist of Capacity Building Workshops which allow participants to attend sessions that best suit their area of practice and interest; these workshops will be tailored to the needs of both clinical and non-clinical participants. Days three and four of the event will involve an International Conference which will address broader policy issues of interest to all participants. More information about the ISHHR Conference is available on the ISHHR website: www.ishhr.com 

Please find below the 'Call for Abstracts' email that ISHHR has distributed to its mailing list and interested organisations. We would the thrilled if the call could be added to the Forced Migration Mail list, as we believe the Conference is very relevant to your subscribers areas of practice and interest. 

Many thanks for your consideration. I look forward to your response.

Best regards,
Ms Georgia Regan 
Coordinator
International Society for Health and Human Rights (ISHHR) /
Sociedad Internacional Para la Salud y los Derechos Humanos


A friendly reminder that the ISHHR Call for Abstracts is open for one more month! The 10th International Conference for the International Society for Health and Human Rights (ISHHR): "Mental health, mass people displacement and ethnic minorities" will take place between the 26th-29th September 2017 in the city of Novi Sad in Serbia.

While the event is targeted at psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors and other support workers, the conference also aims to build the capacity of medical doctors, researchers, advocates, journalists, students and other individuals working in the field of refugee support, civil society and community development.

The first two days of the event from the 26th-27th September will consist of capacity building workshops which will allow participants to attend sessions that best suit their area of practice and interest. The final two days of the event, from the 28th-29th September, will involve an international conference.

The capacity building workshops will focus on: 
* Creative therapies in trauma healing 
* Neurofeedback and biofeedback therapies 
* Providing services to women (mothers, older women and vulnerable women) 
* Prevention of secondary traumatization and burn out among service providers; identification and awareness of risk factors, and implementing supervision and reporting systems 
* Providing services to returnees from the EU, many of whom are Roma; with special emphasis on children belonging to returnee families 
* Providing culturally-appropriate integration programs; specifically, providing education to refugee or migrant children and support to adult refugees and migrants to access the labour market 
* Addressing migrant health issues in order to manage public health concerns; e.g. risk of spread of TB, malaria, scabies, lice, etc. 
* Addressing the needs of often overlooked groups; particularly single males

The international conference themes are: 
* The impact of the refugee experience on the physical and mental health of the individual and the community 
* Providing services to unregistered people; aligning the efforts of civil society and local authorities to provide assistance 
* Ethical dilemmas in providing mental health care to asylum seekers 
* The impact of radicalisation in the West on community perceptions of refugees

The ISHHR Secretariat is looking for abstracts that relate to the aforementioned themes. Once received, abstracts will be reviewed by ISHHR’s Scientific Committee members who will select the papers most appropriate for the event. If selected, you will be invited to present your work at the event, or have your work published in conference material.

To submit an abstract, visit the ISHHR website and upload your abstract through the submission portal: http://ishhr.com/submit-abstract/

The call for abstracts will close on Friday the 31st of March 2017.

Note: we will be offering partial sponsorship of attendance costs to select individuals interested in attending the ISHHR Conference; submission of an abstract is a requirement to be considered for sponsorship.

Any questions regarding the submission of abstracts, or about the ISHHR Conference in general should be sent to [log in to unmask]

Thank you for your ongoing support. We look forward to receiving your abstracts!

Best regards,

Ms Georgia Regan 
ISHHR Coordinator
With special thanks to the generous support offered by the Taiwan Fund for Democracy to make this event possible.
