Independent Association of Child Psychologists and Psychiatrists


The Independent Association of Child Psychologists and Psychiatrists (IACPP) was first established in Moscow in June 1992. Two years later, in July 1994, representatives attended the annual Congress of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions that took place in San Francisco, California, and were adopted as a permanent member of that body, representing Russia.

Work of the IACPP to date has included:

With some assistance from groups in Britain and elsewhere, the IACPP has published two resources that emerged from conferences it organized over the past two years: "Russian Orphans: Problems, Hopes, Future" and "A Special Child and His Surroundings: Medical, Social and Psychological Aspects." It soon plans to put out a directory of child and adolescent psychology and psychiatry in Russia, and also hopes eventually to publish a periodical on childhood personality problems and pathologies.
