Registration open for fifth Riggs-Yale conference

April 28, 2016

The fifth Riggs-Yale Conference on Developmental Psychopathology, Family Process and Social Context will examine psychosocial treatment delivered in complex systems of care, and how such systems may both help and at times hinder containment and the delivery of care to the individual and family.

The conference will be held over two days—Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4—at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, Mass.

Visit the conference web site for more details and registration.

The conference will include a series of clinical and research presentations by experts from Yale School of Medicine and the Austen Riggs Center, a small, not-for-profit, open psychiatric center specializing in the psychotherapeutic treatment of psychiatric disorders.

Clinical and research presentations will be followed by an invited commentary and group discussion.

This year's conference chairs are Thomas McMahon, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry and in the Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine, and Jane G. Tillman, PhD, the Evelyn Stefansson Nef Director of the Erik H. Erikson Institute for Education and Research at Austen Riggs Center.

Last year's conference was hosted by the Yale School of Medicine.

A discounted early registration fee is available through May 13.
