What a long wait we had, but finally we could meet again face-to-face in Rotterdam on 6 – 8 October 2022 at the 12th European Congress on Violence in Clinical Psychiatry. The days flew by and were well filled with inspiring keynote speakers and almost 100 substantive sessions and posters.
I would like to thank everyone for their contribution and pleasant attendance. We truly enjoyed your presence. Also a big thank you to the organising committee: Roger Almvik, Patrick Callaghan, Frans Fluttert, Sabine Hahn, Trond Hatling, Kevin McKenna and Nico Oud. It was a great joy working with you and we are looking forward to successfully organising the next congress in 2024 with you again.
Soon we will start with the first brainstorm for the congress in 2024. When the date and location have been determined, we will announce it on this website and via the newsletter.
Looking forward seeing you all again in 2024!
