Professional Organizations

The Nederlandse Vereniging voor Psychiatrie (NVvP), or Dutch Society of Psychiatry, has a membership of approximately 3,000 psychiatrists and several divisions, including those of child and adolescent psychiatry («350 members) and consultation-liaison psychiatry («150 members). The NVvP holds two annual scientific meetings and publishes a monthly scientific journal. The child and adolescent psychiatry group also organizes two scientific meetings each year and publishes a newsletter every 3 months. The Dutch Study Group on Pediatric Consultation Liaison Psychiatry is an unofficial group of consultation-liaison child psychiatrists with approximately 14 members from UMCs and major child psychiatric hospitals. Members of this group meet four to six times per year and collaborate on clinical, funding, political, and research topics, as well as the preparation of clinical protocols, consensus documents, workshops, and presentations. Study groups are active in individual Dutch hospitals, working on clinical and research issues related to pediatric psychosomatic medicine. Dutch child psychologists have the option of membership in the Pediatric Psychology Network—The Netherlands. Finally, the European Association of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry and Psychosomatics (EACLPP) has a small but rapidly expanding informal subsection for European consultation-liaison child psychiatrists, and as of summer 2009, two child psychiatrists have been elected to the EACLPP board. The EACLPP organizes an annual scientific meeting in Europe and has an official journal, the Journal of Psychosomatic Research. As of fall 2009, a consultation-liaison child psychiatrist is also on the board of the European Delirium Association.
