DKPM AG Klinische Psychodiagnostik und Psychometrie

I’m the new lead for the Working Group Klinische Psychodiagnostik und Psychometrie within the Deutsches Kollegium für Psychosomatische Medizin (DKPM). We usually have 2 meetings, one at the annual conference and a virtual one in autumn, where we discuss developments and issues around standardized diagnostics in psychosomatic research and clinical practice.
