6th European Conference on Symptom Validity Assessment 2019

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the:
6th European Conference on Symptom Validity Assessment (SVA)
July 4-5, 2019, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

 

This conference is organized for everyone with an interest in the latest research and state-of-the-art clinical practice of symptom and performance validity assessment. This meeting gives participants the opportunity to share experiences and knowledge, as well as to exchange on current issues related to symptom and performance validity assessment.

We composed a program which will cover a variety of topics, including validity assessments on children, adolescents, and adults. Our program will consider issues of symptom and performance validity in various settings, such as educational institutes, psychiatric hospitals, neurological rehabilitation, and the forensic setting. Speakers will present their research and talk about their clinical experience from both the perspective of large scaled scientific research but also from the perspective of single-case studies. Although the majority of our renowned speakers are based in European countries, it is our honor to also welcome internationally renowned speakers from outside Europe.

There will be a preconference workshop organized (morning session on Thursday, July 4) in advance of the conference which will be held by Dr. Thomas Merten (
Vivantes Clinic Friedrichshain, Berlin, Germany). This workshop will address problems and pitfalls in using instruments for symptom and performance validity assessment. This workshop is relevant for both clinicians and researchers and covers conceptual as well as methodological issues.

Registration is still open,
until June 28! Register now! 

We are looking forward to meeting you in Amsterdam!

Note for participants working in the Netherlands: Clinical accreditation will be provided!
