Social-cultural context of psychopathology 30 – 31 May 2024
EPP symposium 156

How does the socio-cultural environment shape psychopathology

The socio-cultural environment interacts with and shapes psychopathology. In the EPP, many of us try to capture these effects with our experiments. We want to understand these interactions. But what do we know about them and how good are our experiments? We invited experts that will discuss and explain the importance and the difficulties of investigating interactions between the socio-cultural environment and psychopathology. Apart from interesting lectures and timely discussions, we will have ample time to socialize, drink, and eat in the historical part of the city of the Hague.
