Congratulations to all who attended and contributed to the Paris Conference (11-12 April 2019) on Psychiatry, Psychology & Brain Studies.
A small but truly global event, as I had the opportunity to introduce contributions from Australia, Russia, Malaysia, India, Brazil, USA and UK. Thanks particularly go on Day 1 to Torie Robinson, Greg Robin and Paul Lang for their inspiring personal stories.
Also, thanks go to the Day 1 audience for their enthusiastic receiving of my keynote presentation on Good Practice in Risk Decision-Making incorporating the concept of Positive Risk-Taking that I created back in 1994. Look out for forthcoming webinar presentations and access to a full Membership Site underpinning the concept of Positive Risk-Taking through the intricacies of working with risk.
Many thanks to the organisers of the 10th EuroSciCon Conference on Psychiatry, Psychology & Brain Studies (Paris 11-12 April 2019) for inviting me to be both a Keynote Speaker on Risk Decision-Making and my personal concept of Positive Risk-Taking, and also to be session chair for most of Day 1.

Kirt Hunte discusses his early introduction to the nursing profession growing up in Trinidad, before making the move to Guy’s Hospital in London. He reflects on a few important influences in those formative professional years before he developed his specialist interest in acute mental health care and the provision of crisis response and resolution teams.
He initiated the South Camden Crisis Team in 2001 and managed it through to 2011, and is in a good position to reflect on the qualities of a good team as well as its individual practitioners. Kirt identifies the support and development of new workers as one of many rewards of team management, as well as his rare combination of bringing gestalt psychotherapeutic skills and experience into the arena of short-term crisis working.
