The INPP International Conference Series

INPP has co-ordinated a series of annual international conferences running from 1997. 

We welcome proposals for future conferences in the series – these are considered by INPP’s Founding Executive Officers (Bill Fulford, John Sadler and Giovanni Stanghellini) in consultation with the INPP’s international Standing Committee

1. The INPP Conference Series

The first conference in the INPP Conference Series was held in Malaga (Spain) convened by Bill Fulford (Royal College of Psychiatrists Philosophy Group) and John Sadler (AAPP).  

The series has run annually since then with conferences organised by individuals and groups in every part of the world.

The link below takes you to a list of INPP international conferences, past and proposed.

INPP maintains a searchable archive of past conference programmes.

We are very grateful to Francis Maunze, the Archivist of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London, for cataloguing the archive and allowing access by way of the link below

The next conference in the series is being organised by Jean Naudin, Michael Schwartz and colleagues in Marseille, France, October 4 – 6 2021, on the theme of Good Times, Bad Times: Cultivating Hope and Recovery
