Intuition, Imagination, Innovation in Suicidology Conference 2024

14 & 15 May 2024, Zoom

Is suicide prevention destined to stagnate?

We are pleased to invite you to the 15th Intuition, Imagination and Innovation in Suicidology conference, which will take place on 14 & 15 May via Zoom.

The ‘Intuition, Imagination and Innovation in Suicidology‘ is an annual global conference organised by the UP IAM Slovene Centre for Suicide Research. The event is held in memory of the late Prof. Andrej Marušič (around the time of his birthday). Its main goal is to promote intuition, imagination and innovation in research and prevention of suicide and suicidal behaviour.

In recent years, the conference has developed into an important link for professionals in suicide research and prevention and has become a centre for meaningful discussions between leading experts and aspiring suicidologists.

The programme covers suicide research, clinical approaches and interventions and encourages discussion on theories, prevention and challenges in this field. Participants are invited to share their insights after each lecture.

Students, professionals, scholars, practitioners or others interested in the topic of suicidal behaviours from different fields and different parts of the world are invited to join the conference. 

Let this conference be the opportunity to express and practice your intuition, imagination and innovative ideas!

Warm welcome!

Prijazno vabljeni!
