Message from the Past-president

Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to inform you that the ESSPD board has recently signed a memorandum of understanding facilitating a closer collaboration with the International Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (ISSPD) and PD-focused organizations on other continents (North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific). This will mean that board members nominated by these continental organizations and ESSPD will make up the majority of the ISSPD board which will then, hopefully, serve as a federative structure ensuring more active international collaboration across continents. Whereas the ESSPD will continue as a completely independent organization with its own strategies and priorities, we believe there is a lot to gain from establishing closer and more systematic forms of collaboration and communication.
