Risk Factors for Coercion in Mental Health Services
The Training School will be held in Middelfart Denmark (or online if necessary due to COVID-19) on the 21st-23rd of September 2021 and will focus on risk factors for coercion in mental health services. This training school is part of the EU COST Action FOSTREN (Fostering and Strengthening Approaches to Reducing Coercion in European Mental Health Services). It aims to improve understanding of risk factors at both the individual / clinical and social / contextual levels leading to the use of the various forms of coercion.
The Training School is specifically tailored for PhD and post-graduate students and early-career investigators (within 8 years of a Ph.D. award) working in Mental health and Mental Health related areas. The program will combine lectures from experts in the field with interactive sessions to encourage exchange of views and to facilitate networking among participants. Participants will be required to present a poster describing their own studies, interests or work area related to the topic of the Training School. This can include planned and ongoing research projects.
