After the immense success of the previous three focused CONCLAVES organized by DERMASOURCEINDIA on DERMATOSCOPY, PRP, and PCOD, it gives us great pleasure to once again extend a very warm welcome to all of you to the first-of-its-kind CME devoted to a unique aspect of translational and correlative Dermatology; i.e.PSYCHODERMATOLOGY.
The complex relation of MIND-BODY-SKIN has intrigued scientists and healers for centuries. Although traditional Indian scriptures have deliberated elaborately on the relevance of this relation in skin disorders, modern medicine too has captured the essence of the subject, evidenced by the formation of the European and American Societies on Psychodermatology. As dermatology practitioners in India, we are in fact faced with patients with more serious psychological/psychiatric co-morbidities than their western counterparts. This stems from the synergistic influence of staunchly caressed cultural beliefs inherent to the Indian socio-philosophical conformation and the onslaught of the unsolicited and often misleading medical information available on the internet to the ‘google’ generation of the 21st century India.
Considering the urgency of maintaining pace with the international community regarding this relatively orphaned area of dermatology therapeutics, the first ever PSYCHODERMATOLOGY INDIA 2016 CONCLAVE is being organized in the modern city of Gurugram (Gurgaon), on 22nd May 2016 at the Auditorium, Medanta: The Medicity. This one day exhaustive CME has been specifically designed to bring to fore the practical utility of having an in-depth knowledge and acquisition of skills of managing a patient with skin disorder, who’s therapeutic outcome may be dramatically improved by concomitant institution of psychological and/or psychiatric evaluation and therapy.
This Conclave, a collated effort of Dermatologists, Psychiatrists and Clinical Psychologists holds the key to successful rendition of our responsibility as holistic healers. Do we need say anymore…………….!
