Deaf People and Mental Health online conference

December 4th - 6th 2006.

Please note: Although this conference is closed for new postings, you can still register to view the proceedings, available until 8th January 2007

Following on from our highly successful Supporting Deaf People online conferences, we are pleased to announce the Deaf People and Mental Health conference.

This three day online conference will be useful to all those who are involved in, or interested in, the field of mental health and deafness.

As you can see from the programme, we have an excellent list of presenters, including as the key note presenters, Dr. Brendan Monteiro, on 'The characteristics, assessment and treatment of deaf sex offenders'; and Dr. Robert Pollar, on 'The impact of experience on clinicians' judgments regarding psychosis symptoms in Deaf patients'. For more information, or to sign up for the conference, see the links to the left.

Online conferences offer participants a great chance to network with others from around the world, and promote a much greater level of discussion than usually happens in face to face conferences, with more active participation from more people - and all at a fraction of the cost of a physical conference. Direct Learn has been running online conferences for six years now, and we invariably get excellent feedback - and plenty of delegates come back year after year. If you need more information on how online conferences work, please see the FAQ section.


Feedback from a previous conference:

"I'd never participated in an online conference before and I must say I found the whole experience extremely stimulating and informative. I really liked the way it gives people the time to compose intelligent questions, incorporate links and participate in multiple in-depth discussions. What a great way to create and share knowledge!" (Russell Francis, Oxford University)
