The Anxiety and Depression Association of America Annual Conference is the premier professional meeting on the science and treatment of anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, and depression in children and adults.
The conference goal includes leveraging its broad audience to synthesize cutting-edge knowledge, accelerate dissemination, and translate scientific evidence to practice by engaging clinicians.
The ADAA Annual Conference is novel and it works actively to advance knowledge in unique ways: 1) fostering dissemination and collaboration among basic and clinical researchers; 2) encouraging researchers and clinicians to discuss practical applications in real life settings; 3) accelerating implementation of research to practice with hands-on training of empirically tested treatments; 4) involving early career investigators, residents, trainees, and graduate students in research and practice; and 5) providing opportunities for professionals to hear patient perspectives. The conference engages all of these audiences, building bridges and supporting these networks throughout the year.
About 1,000 health professionals and researchers - psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists, nurses, physicians, clinical researchers, and basic neuroscientists - are expected to attend. ADAA offers CE and CME credits.
