Event description
Founder's Day is St Patrick's Mental Health Services' landmark annual conference, celebrating clinical excellence in mental health.

About this Event

Bringing together national and international academics, clinicians, and practitioners, Founder's Day is held to recognise and continue the legacy of St Patrick's founder, Jonathan Swift, a pioneer in mental healthcare.

Taking place in St Patrick's University Hospital, Dublin 8, the 2019 conference focuses on the theme of anxiety.

Our plenary lecture comes from Professor David Clark of Oxford University, who will be discussing effective psychological treatments for anxiety and the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Programme.

Professor Mark Freeston of Newcastle University will present on the role of intolerance of uncertainty in understanding, formulating and treating anxiety in anxiety disorders and beyond, while Professor Helen Kennerley of the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre will explore anxiety and dissociation.

Meanwhile, Professor Brian Fitzmaurice, Course Director of Trinity College Dublin's Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Diploma, will examine the challenges and opportunities of CBT training for anxiety disorders in the Irish context.

Further speakers and programme details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Founder's Day occupies an important space in the Irish Continual Professional Development (CPD) calendar, and CPD points for this event will be made available: further details on this will shortly follow.
