About the conference

We take great pleasure in inviting you to our 2nd annual conference on Psychopathy and Violence Risk Management. This year the conference will be held at the RAMADA Hotel Berlin - Alexanderplatz in Berlin, Germany, on 7-8 May 2014. We are pleased to offer an exciting programme provided by a number of national and international experts. Psychopathy remains one of the most difficult personality disorders to treat and the term is still controversial among clinicians and researchers. This topic however has gained renewed interest, as it has shown to be a very important concept for those working in the field of criminal justice, who have to evaluate, manage and treat offenders. This conference provides a state-of-the art science review of current knowledge on different aspects of psychopathy: causation and manifestations, latest developments in our understanding of the genesis to cross-cultural influences, concept and classification, aetiology, epidemiology, and emerging trend in treatment approaches. This meeting will also explore variants of psychopathy and their implications for risk assessment. For mental health professionals violence risk assessment and management is essential in their clinical practice and needs to be addressed with a clear structured evidences-based approach. We are looking forward to welcoming you at our conference held in the charming city of Berlin. This city has something to offer for everybody, whether you prefer visiting sights rich in history or simply enjoy a cup of coffee in the boulevard of Berlin "Mitte" under the linden-trees.

About the conference
The aim of the conference is to bring together people working in public health, third sector, local authorities and other interested groups to critically examine the issue of food poverty in modern Britain and to openly debate the realistic options available for addressing this within the various and complex social, economic and political constraints.

The organizing committee at Medineo is pleased to invite you to submit abstracts for a poster presentation at our upcoming conference on Psychopathy and Violence Risk Management: Empirical and Practical Challenges (Posters on previously presented work are welcome). Abstracts will be selected on a "first come first serve" basis. Deadline for abstract submission is the 30th of April 2014. All abstracts must be submitted and presented in English or in German and should not be longer than 300 words. Enter the full name of your abstract exactly as it appears in your abstract document. This will be used for printing in the final programme. Author's, whose abstracts are accepted, must attend the meeting and present in person. Abstracts are to be presented as a poster. The size of the poster should be 90 x 120 cm. Ideally, each poster will be self-explanatory, but there will be various sessions where presenting authors are expected to be available near their poster to answer questions and engage in discussions. All accepted abstracts will be printed in the meeting abstract book. This book will be distributed to all participants at the meeting and is included in the registration fee.
