Spirituality/Religion is relevant to most of human beings, 84% of the world's population reports a religious affiliation. Systematic reviews of the academic literature have identified
literally thousands of empirical studies showing the relationship (usually positive but also negative) between Spirituality/Religion and health. However, there has been world wide a huge gap between knowledge available about the impact of Spirituality/Religion to health and the translation of this knowledge to the actual clinical practice and public health policies. Given this, the World Psychiatric Association recently published a Position Statement on Spirituality and Religion in Psychiatry emphasizing the importance of integrating Spirituality/Religion in clinical practice, research and education in Psychiatry. This Congress will focus on practical implications, on how to sensibly and effectively integrate Spirituality/Religion in mental health care and public policies.
