Indian Association of Private Psychiatry, 2016

Theme: "Emerging Challenges in Current Psychiatric Practices"

Organised By West Bengal State Branch


Dear Colleagues,

We, the members of the Organising Committee of 17th Annual National Conference of Indian Association of Private Psychiatry (ANCIAPP 2016) organized by Indian Association of Private Psychiatry, West Bengal State Branch warmly welcome you all to be a part of the prestigious event, to be held in Hotel ITC Sonar, Kolkata from November 3rd to November 6th 2016.

Psychiatry's going through a phase of rapid changes and we all are facing challenges in our day to day practice on a regular basis. The innovations of neurosciences will shape the current psychiatric practices in the decades ahead. The early diagnosis and interventions, tsunami of genetic discoveries, neuroplasticity as treatment target, neurostimulations for brain repair, pharmacogenomics in clinical practice and intertwining of physical and mental disorders will guide the roadmap of future psychiatric practices. With the wider availability of systematic reviews and evidence based approaches the researches in this field are growing exponentially at genetic, molecular, biochemical and therapeutic levels. Beyond acquiring the scientific knowledge, clinical skills and attitudes the practicing experiences is the fourth dimension which completes the circle from 'science of psychiatry' to 'art of psychiatry'.

The theme of the conference-"Emerging Challenges in Current Psychiatric Practices" highlights the upcoming challenges in this fast growing branch of neurosciences and its relevance to day to day practices. The academics of the conference will give clues to many of our unanswered queries.

Needless to say, Kolkata is famous for its hospitality and the conference will turn out to be a bonanza of academics and entertainment - a break from the humdrum of daily life.

We, once again extend a hearty welcome to all to make this event a grand success!

It gives me immense pleasure to know the IAPP-West Bengal state branch is organizing the 17th annual conference of IAPP (ANCIAPP 2016) on 3rd-6th November 2016 at Kolkata.

The Theme: Emerging Challenges in current psychiatric practice.

The field of psychiatry is witnessing almost tsunamic changes from traditional to most modern psychiatry. Infact this is the only branch of medicines which has undergone such a drastic changes. Only because of this the stigma about psychiatry and psychiatrist in particular is going down. However the flip side is that it is undergoing so many regulations, which sometimes would make it difficult to practice. This innovative concept and practice of positive psychiatry is drawing positive accolades across the globe.

I am sure that scientific deliberations during this conference go a long way in achieving these objectives. The organizers have chosen the best of faculty from India. I wish to personally thank all the faculty members.

I wish to congratulate and express my best wishes to the organizers of ANCIAPP-2016 conference.
