2020 IASP Hybrid Asia Pacific Conference, Taipei

In association with the Taiwanese Society of Suicidology, we are delighted to have hosted IASP 2020 and hope that many of you were able to join us. We were thrilled to offer this conference to our members and supporters across the globe as a truly hybrid event. On Monday November 23rd Professor Jane Pirkis, IASP Vice President alongside Professor Ming-Been Lee President of the TSOS, welcomed to the stage our Keynote speaker Venerable SIK Hin Hung to present ‘Two Buddhist-inspired Psychosocial Interventions: The Dharma Therapy and Awareness Training Program’.

Our programme reflected a blend of physical and virtual presentations, all of which were recorded and have been made available post-conference to registered delegates. With more than 80 presentations from 45 speakers from over 20 countries and 40 plus posters, this was a truly exciting 2 days.
