ISCHP 2015 Conference, 12-15 July 2015, Rhodes University

Call for abstracts


The ISCHP brings together health scholars who are interested in exploring ongoing and emerging issues in critical research, critical theory and critical practice in relation to health and health care. This shared interest in critical approaches to healthcare is exemplified in the theme of the 9th Biennial Conference, ‘Health, Health Care and Social Justice’.


The call for abstracts for the 9th Biennial Conference of the International Society of Critical Health Psychology (ISCHP) is now open.


The ISCHP invites conference abstract submissions that take a critical stance on any aspect of health, health care and social justice. The conference will be broadly structured under the following conference themes:

  • Health systems, histories, and politics
  • Critical health education, interventions and treatment
  • Critical theory and methods in health research
