In the post-genomic era, worldwide collaboration within psychiatric genetics led to a greater understanding of the advances in and implications of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depression.

Unraveling the genetic architecture to reveal certain Copy Number Variants (CNVs), Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and associated Polygenic Risk Scores are now just some of the challenges facing this field.

Therefore we are at a critical time in psychiatry where the correct interpretation of what is testable and what is not, robust communication strategies for patients and appropriate training for relevant healthcare professionals must now be addressed.

This session will offer an overview of where the global research field is at present, the types of training available and empirical data on a randomized control trial testing the efficacy of Psychiatric Genetic Counseling.
