This event was dedicated to review and discuss neurobiological, psychological, anthropological and social issues of the characteristics of safe and dysfunctional attachments, and their consequences in adolescence and early adulthood. The objective of this Conference was to debate how early adverse events could contribute in adulthood to the presentation of personality, affect and cognition disorders. We also wanted to establish the importance of epigenetic factors as determining elements that explain the epidemic figures of feminicides, child abuse and distortions of political power through psychopathic behaviors. All this based fundamentally on an insecure attachment.

Institution recognized for its excellence in the training of Clinical Psychologists and Psychiatrists

Internship in Clinical Psychology

The internship in Clinical Psychology is defined as a supervised pre-professional practice experience in a mental health care center approved by the Faculty of Psychology of the university of origin and is conceptualized as an academic-clinical-professional experience. The internship is an academic requirement that primarily seeks to train clinical psychologists so that they can carry out the exercise of their professional practice with rigor, commitment and concordance with the ethical requirements that their level of training demands.

The pre-professional exercise of Psychology students must cover a variety of roles and scenarios where they are able to understand and address the suffering of each patient who visits them, whether at a personal, family or group level. The training process includes experiences of interviews, evaluation, intervention and supervision. In addition, this process allows the integration of clinical skills with theoretical training to carry out the conceptualization of cases and the evaluation of therapeutic processes under their responsibility, so participation in academic activities is of the utmost importance.
