Attend our uniquely designed hybrid conference, in person or virtually.

9th IASP Asia Pacific Conference.         

Alongside the Taiwanese Society of Suicidology, we’re delighted to be hosting #IASPTAIPEI2020. It’s never been more important to share suicide prevention efforts. Our uniquely designed hybrid conference will transform how we work together with an interactive platform, live-streaming and recordings accessible to all who register.   Hosted by Professor Ming-Been Lee, the IASP 2020 Asia Pacific Conference has a packed programme. The keynote speaker is Venerable Sik Hin Hun, a Buddhist monk. His main interest is in ‘repackaging’ the Teachings of Buddhism for today’s world with a focus on psychotherapy, neuroscience of meditation, Buddhist education and personal growth. With over 10 plenaries from experts across the region and worldwide and a closing keynote by IASP President Murad Khan, this is a conference not to miss.
