Scientific Sessions

Track 1: Psychiatric Disorders and their Manifestation

Psychiatric Disorders are disorders of brain function. It results from complex interactions between a person’s genes and the environment. The DSM and ICD separate mental disorders into separate categories. The goal of this session is to understand the manifestation, prognosis, treatment and diagnosis of various types of dissociative disorders. There are three main types of dissociative disorders defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders; they are Dissociative Amnesia, Dissociative identity disorder and Depersonalization disorder Multiple, Borderline and Paranoid Personality Disorder and three major types of Dissociative identity disorder which we will be focusing on in our conference. Bipolar disorder is also known as manic-depressive illness that causes unusual shifts in mood and energy. At least half of all cases start before age 25. The people with bipolar disorder experience unusually intense emotional states that occur in distinct periods called mood episodes. Overly joyful or overexcited state is called a manic episode; an extremely sad or hopeless state is called a depressive episode. The goal of this session is to understand the manifestation, treatment and diagnosis of various aspects of bipolar disorders like imaging and genetics of bipolar disorder.

Track 3: Childhood and Pediatric Psychiatry

Mental disorders diagnosed in children are mainly divided into two categories: childhood disorders and learning disorders. They are diagnosed when the child is of school-age, some adults may also relate to some of the symptoms of these disorders. Child psychiatry is the branch of Psychiatry which deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of psychological disorders in children. Child Psychiatry conference is a remarkable opportunity to gain knowledge and to aware the general public about various child psychiatric disorders. Most common developmental disorder is mental retardation. As per the CDC report, more than one out of every 100 school children in the United States has some form of mental retardation. The second most common developmental disorder is cerebral palsy which is then followed by autism spectrum disorders. Our conference will address all areas pertinent to various childhood disorders including Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Attachment Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Mood Dysregulation Disorder. According to a recent study about 7 percent of kids worldwide have ADHD. As per the U.S. Surgeon General, about 20% of American children suffer from a diagnosable mental illness during a given year. Nearly 5 million American children and adolescents suffer from a serious mental illness.

Track 4: Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by very frightening or stressful distressing events. It is estimated to affect about 1 in every 3 people who have a traumatic experience. Panic disorders and anxiety are most common in person suffering from PTSD.

Our conference will address all areas pertinent to onset, genetics, prognosis, treatment and diagnosis of schizophrenia.

Track 6: Neuropsychiatry and Addiction Disorders

Addiction or Addictive disorders have a huge impact on individuals and society through the direct adverse effects of drugs and functional consequences of altered neuroplasticity in the brain which causes loss of productivity. The effect of addiction includes impaired control over substances, preoccupation with substance, continued use despite consequences and denial. Potential addictions include behavioral and cyber addiction, substance abuse, gambling and alcohol addiction. Recently, only substance addictions and gambling addiction are recognized by the DSM-5.

The goal of this session is to understand various aspects of addiction and its treatment and rehabilitation.

Track 7: Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is a field of psychiatry which deals with the assessment and treatment of mentally disordered offenders and criminals.  It is an interface between mental health and law.  Work of forensic patients is stimulating as patients present with diverse psychopathologies and complex psycho-social difficulties. Forensic psychiatrists have to balance the risk to society and the needs of the individual.  They provide medical treatment in a secure environment or where patients are subject to legal restrictions. Our conference will be focusing about recent developments in forensic psychiatry, criminological studies, ethical issues in forensic psychology and behavioral forensic science.

Track 8: Emergency Psychiatry

The conditions requiring psychiatric interventions may include substance abuse, attempted suicide, psychosis, depression violence or other rapid changes in behavior. According to National Hospital Discharge Survey: 2010 the number of discharges with psychoses as first-listed diagnosis is 1.5 million and average length of stay for mental disorders: 7.2 days. The goal of this session is to understand various psychiatric interventions such as, depression, attempted suicide, psychosis, violence or any other rapid changes in behavior.

Track 9: Geriatric Psychiatry

Geriatric psychiatry is also known as psychogeriatrics is a subspecialty of psychiatry dealing with the treatment, study and prevention of mental disorders in humans with old age. According to recent data indicate that an estimated that about 20.4 percent of adults aged 65 and older fulfilled the criteria for a mental disorder.

Track 10: Discrimination and Stigma Related to Mental Health

Mental disorders affect thousands of people, their family, friends and society. One in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives.

Depression affects around one in 12 of the whole population. About 450 million people world-wide have a mental health problem. Even though so many people are affected with mental illness there is still a strong social stigma attached to mental health.  Nine out of ten people with mental disorders say that discrimination and stigma have negative effect on them. In this session we will be discussing about the role of media in promoting care and reducing stigma surrounding mental health, strategies involved and innovations in stigma research.

International Psychiatry conference 2015 will be a major meeting of international psychiatrists dedicated to promoting psychiatry and to improving mental health around the globe, headed by the common interest of improving mental health.

Track 11: Diagnostic Approaches towards Psychiatry

The recent diagnostic systems for mental disorders depend upon signs and symptoms, of the disorders and also on the development of new treatments. Deep brain stimulation involves implanting electrodes or brain pacemaker within areas of brain. Those electrodes produce electrical impulses that regulate abnormal impulses. DBS is an interface between neurology and psychiatry. DBS is also being studied as a treatment for epilepsy, headaches, major depression and Tourette syndrome. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is one of the most invasive neuromodulation techniques available in recent times. Our conference will address all areas related to Psychosurgery, neuro feedback mechanism and side effects of DBS. In our conference we will be discussing about electroconvulsive therapy, somatic treatments including drugs and deep brain stimulation such as Trans cranial magnetic stimulation therapy, Electroencephalography and Magneto encephalography, Computed tomograph and Positron emission tomography.

Track 12: Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive Neuroscience is a branch concerned about both psychology and neuroscience. Cognitive neuroscience is all about perception, memory, action, and language. It can look at effects of damage to the brain and subsequently changes in the thought processes. Cognitive neuroscience has emerged from many other fields like psychology, neuroscience and computer science. Our conference will mainly emphasize on induced cognitive function and response, psychological aspects of cognitive neuroscience, cognitive impairment and prevention of relapse.

Track 13: Psychoactive Medication

Psychoactive Medication often helps in treating depression, anxiety and other psychological complications. It does not affect the underlying causes of these disorders, but it provides symptomatic relief to allow people to live more normal lives. Most of the drugs covered in this section have numerous effects on the nervous system. Psychotropic drugs for the treatment of mental illness are dependent on the disorder for which they are prescribed. Mainly it is used as an enhancing therapy for the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Based on the data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Males (4.2%) were more likely than females (2.2%) to use ADHD drugs. Females (4.5%) were more likely than males (2.0%) to use antidepressants. The goal of this session is to understand the relationship between antipsychotics and psychotherapy, role of Akt/GSK3 signaling and dopamine in the action of psychotropic drugs.

Track 14: Advanced Therapeutics for Psychiatric Disorders

Psychotherapy is often used either alone or in combination with medications to treat mental illnesses. Nowadays extraordinary advances have been made in the treatment of mental illness. Treatment methods for psychiatric disorders can be differentiated as either somatic or psychotherapeutic. In our conference we will be discussing about electroconvulsive therapy, somatic treatments including drugs and deep brain stimulation such as Trans cranial magnetic stimulation therapy on psychotherapeutic treatments including psychotherapy and behavior therapy techniques such as hypnotherapy, Dialectrical behavior therapy and mindfulness-based therapies.
