Lectures and Awards

The Klaus Grawe Lecture has been part of the program at the Annual Conference of the Section of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy of the German Association of Psychology since 2007. In cooperation with the Section of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, well-known scientists presented their results on clinical psychology, psychotherapy research and related fields. The objective was to contribute to the dissemination of clinically relevant research results to clinicians in mental health.

We also give awards for extraordinary scientific achievements and successfully disseminate evidence-based prevention and treatment programs in practice.
