TRIPLE i Virtual Conference 2021

25 – 27 May 2021, Zoom Webinar (Slovenia)

We are pleased to invite you to the Triple i Virtual Conference, a collaborative event brought to you by Slovene Centre for Suicide Research, De Leo Fund Onlus and the International Association for Suicide Prevention. The conference will take place from 25 to 27 May 2021 in the online environment Zoom.

TRIPLE i is an international annual conference organised by the Slovene Centre for Suicide Research (Andrej Marušič Institute, University of Primorska, Slovenia) in memory of the late Prof. Andrej Marušič (around the time of his birthday) with the aim of promoting intuition, imagination and innovation in research and prevention of suicide and suicidal behaviour.

Due to the epidemiological situation related to the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we will be holding a virtual TRIPLE i conference again this year. Even in this difficult situation we wanted to offer opportunities for interaction and fruitful discussions between distinguished suicidologists and perspective young participants. For this reason, researchers from different institutions have connected to prepare a TRIPLE i Virtual Conference.

The programme includes topics of suicide research and clinical work with suicidal patients. Thus, we will address theory, research, prevention, and interventions in suicidology. Each lecture will be followed by a discussion in which the participants will be invited to share their views. Existing difficulties in both research and clinical work will be specifically addressed.

Students, professionals, scholars, practitioners or others interested in the topic of suicidal behaviours are invited to join us in a slightly different conference format, but with equally important and interesting lectures. Let the virtual TRIPLE i be the opportunity to express and practice your intuition, imagination and innovative ideas.

Please, see below for further information.

Warm welcome!

Prijazno vabljeni!
