The 56th IMTA Conference
The Military Psychological Service of the Bundeswehr (German Federal Armed Forces) will host the 56th Conference of the International Military Testing Association on 27-30 October 2014 in Hamburg (Germany). The conference will be organized by the German Armed Forces Office (Streitkräfteamt) in cooperation with the Helmut-Schmidt University, Hamburg (University of the Federal Armed Forces).
Besides mental health, the dimension of Psychological Fitness is becoming more and more important in current military operations. The complex interaction of psychological, social, behavioral, spiritual and mental factors has lead to a rethinking in military psychology and initiated multidisciplinary research. The conference aims to broaden the knowledge on specific approaches in testing, training, improving and maintaining psychological fitness in military groups.
The annual IMTA conference is one of the most important events for the promotion and exchange of innovative research and good practices not only in testing but in all aspects of military psychology. This conference will provide a unique and excellent occasion for experts of both the military and the civilian sector to discuss current aspects related to Psychological Fitness. We would be delighted to have you and your service members present at this conference.
