Dr. Vicente E. Caballo
President of the Ibero-American Psychological Association of Clinical and Health issues (APICSA)
The Iberoamerican Psychological Association of Clinical and Health issues (APICSA) and the research group “Advances in Psychopathology and Behavior Therapy” (APYTEC) of the University of Granada welcome you to the X Iberoamerican Congress of Clinical and Health Psychology, which will take place on October 15-18, 2024, in the city of Granada.
The main purpose of the congress is to bring together professionals, researchers, professors and students of Psychology to disseminate the most recent advances, perspectives and applied techniques produced in the fields of Clinical Psychology and Health Psychology. Most of the invited speakers are many of the most important Spanish (and some American) psychologists who have been working in the above disciplines for many years. Some of the classic books dealing with them have been written by these psychologists and have served and continue to serve as reference readings for students, professors and researchers at national and international level. The congress offers conferences, symposia, posters and workshops in order to present the latest advances in a whole range of areas pertaining to Clinical Psychology and Health Psychology.
We believe that this is a unique opportunity to bring together all scholars of Clinical and Health Psychology in the broad scope of the Americas, from Patagonia to Alaska, sharing languages (official languages of the congress) such as Spanish, Portuguese and English. We also invite the rest of the international community, coming from other continents, to join this special meeting of cultures, scientific knowledge and social realities.
We hope that you will enjoy not only the knowledge provided by the congress but also the reunion of old friends and acquaintances and the chance to meet new colleagues in the incomparable setting of the city of Granada, renowned not only for the excellence of its university but also for being one of the most attractive cities for tourism at the international level. From the Alhambra, the most visited monument in Spain and World Heritage Site, through the Albaicín neighborhood, the Cartuja Monastery or the Cathedral to Sierra Nevada (ski resort that includes the highest mountains of the Iberian Peninsula), the Alpujarras region or the proximity of the tropical coast.
Dr. Ignacio Morón Henche
Dean of the Faculty of Psychology
Dear attendees to the X Ibero-American Congress of Clinical and Health Psychology. It is a pleasure to welcome you from our Faculty of Psychology of the University of Granada. First of all, we would like to convey the honor of hosting you in our facilities whenever you wish to visit us. We are aware of the tremendous impact of your activity and the presence among you of many of the most relevant Spanish (but not only) researchers in this field of Psychology in the last 50 years. Many of them are regular collaborators of our faculty and even develop part of their research with us, in the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center (CIMCYC), our research center of international projection and recognition thanks to them. For this reason, it is still necessary to have this type of scientific meetings, which not only allow a greater development of clinical and health psychology, but also allows a continuation and expansion of the Ibero-American collaboration. Little by little, we continue to make Ibero-American ties more stable and closer, developing all the potential they present. The papers and presentations to be given at this 10th Ibero-American Congress will be a good example of this. It only remains for me to invite you to enjoy not only the magnificent scientific atmosphere that will develop in this congress, but also our wonderful city. The ties between Granada and the Faculty of Psychology are close, the result of the countless actions and collaborations maintained from psychology and that are gradually strengthening our social environment. Let yourself fall in love with a beautiful city and friendly people. In short, feel at home. Welcome!!!
