The organizers were the Department of Psychology at the University of Osijek and Osijek Psychological Society in cooperation with the Croatian Psychological Chamber and the Croatian Psychological Association. The conference is held biennially, and each time has a specific theme. This year’s theme was violence and mental health – an interdisciplinary approach. As evidenced by this year’s theme, it gathered experts from different fields, which is a great advantage for joint efforts in the area of combating violence.
