Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society for Dermatology and Psychiatry (ESDAP), Association for Psychoneurocutaneous Medicine of North America (APMNA), and Turkish Association of Dermatology and Venereology it gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the ESDAP 21th. Congress and 1st Psychodermatology World Congress in İstanbul, Turkey.

As an emerging and evolving interdisciplinary area, psychodermatology provides a new approach and therapeutic horizon to meet the needs of patients in dermatology. We have a theme for this exciting scientific event which is “Chronic Skin Disorders and Psychosomatics”. By embracing this holistic approach to healing skin disorders, we empower individuals to not only treat their skin conditions but also improve their mental and emotional well-being, leading to an overall enhancement in their quality of life. In the evolving landscape of medicine, the fusion of dermatology and psychology in the field of psychodermatology represents a promising path towards comprehensive and compassionate care.

The ESDAP and 1st Psychodermatology World Congress cover all topics within psychodermatology presenting and discussing the latest scientific findings and providing in-depth clinical teaching and education. In addition to the full scientific program, it will be a fantastic opportunity for networking for healthcare professionals, interested in developing their knowledge and career on psychodermatology.

We will be honored to show you the unique Turkish hopitality in İstanbul, the city which is a melting pot of cultures and traditions, blending together to create a unique and vibrant atmosphere that can be felt throughout the event.

Please join us in İstanbul to make the 21st ESDAP and 1st Psychodermatology World Congress a unique and unforgettable event!
