The 1st International Conference on Parental Burnout (ICPB) is a multidisciplinary, international conference bringing together researchers who share an interest in parental burnout.

 The ICPB conference provides a unique opportunity to learn about parental burnout from an interdisciplinary perspective, capitalizing on the integration of various disciplinary fields and subfields (e.g., clinical psychology, organizational psychology, history, management, developmental psychology, affective sciences, health psychology, anthropology, psychiatry, public health). In this way, ICPB aims at going exceedingly active in honoring all the academics and professionals dedicated to parental burnout research, prevention, and treatment.
