Traditional Clinical Psychology has been more preoccupied with the remedial approaches to help psychological problems than preventing them in the first place. Now, we have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the processes underlying the onset and maintenance of psychological disorders. This conference attempts to bring together our knowledge, techniques and strategies that have been shown to be successful in the prevention of psychological disorders. Following the Bio-Psycho-Social and Spiritual framework of Clinical Psychology, we have gathered a number of experts from different but related fields and to share their clinical, research findings and theoretical views that would help individuals and communities to promote, conserve and maintain their psychological health. More specifically, how can we infuse a preventative role in Clinical Psychology: its conceptualization, teaching, training and application?
