Helmut Remschmidt Research Seminars
At the 17th IACAPAP Congress in Melbourne held in 2006, the IACAPAP Executive Committee decided to arrange research seminars, entitled the Helmut Remschmidt Research Seminars, in the geographical area of the upcoming IACAPAP Congress. The purpose of the seminars is to inspire young colleagues from IACAPAP and allied disciplines to engage in research. The aims are to provide: basic knowledge in key aspects of research design in child and adolescent psychiatry, skills in presenting research to colleagues, skills in commenting on the research of others, and the ability to carry out personal research projects under the specific circumstances of one’s department.
Seminars are organized into themes. Each seminar participant is asked to bring to the seminar a research plan or an ongoing project in the form of a PowerPoint presentation to present in group discussion under the supervision of 1 or 2 mentors.
The mentors are very experienced IACAPAP clinicians and scientists. They present papers in the morning and become the mentors in the afternoon, when the project proposals of the participants are discussed.
The 2024 IACAPAP Congress will be held in Rio de Janeiro, the first ever IACAPAP meeting in the Latin-American Region. For this reason, the HRRS2023 will take place in Brazil. Successful HRRS Fellows will be joined by a team of international mentors (Prof Bruno Falissard, Prof Christina Schwenck, Prof Maretha de Jonge and Prof Petrus de Vries) as well as one local mentor (Dr Lizzie Shephard).
