Read the introductory address delivered by Dolores Britvic at the opening of the First Croatian Congress on Psychological Trauma with international participation

It is a special honour and privilege to greet you and welcome you to the First Croatian Congress on Psychological Trauma with international participation. The main topic of this event, which will take place in the beautiful scenery of a Mediterranean jewel, the city of Split, is “Psychological trauma between remembering and forgetting”.

During the last 25 years, we have been constantly professionally involved in diagnosing and treating patients with a variety of post-traumatic and stress related disorders, particularly war veterans whose psychological difficulties have had a strong impact on quality of their life as well as their families and the whole society. We organise the First Psychiatric Congress on Psychological Trauma with international participation with the aim to get acquainted with the newest perspectives, to bring forth and consolidate acquired knowledge and experiences in diagnosing, treatment and rehabilitation of our patients and their families.

Distinguished domestic and international guest lecturers are invited to participate and share their valuable knowledge and experience with all of us. We invite you to actively participate in the First Croatian Congress on Psychological Trauma, contributing to its general success with the presentation of your work.

We look forward to meeting you in Split in November 2017.

President of the Organising Committee

Vice President of the Croatian Psychiatric Association:
