Progress of Psychiatry in 1902: Belgium.

  • Jules Morel

The year 1902 was distinguished in Belgium by the meeting of the International Congress for the Care of the Insane—a meeting remarkable not alone for the importance of the subjects that were dealt with, but also for the number of distinguished foreign alienists who attended from all parts of Europe. Dr. Peeters, Physician and Director of the Colony of Gheel, served as President of the meeting, and conducted the proceedings with the greatest kindness and tact, displaying at the same time his thorough familiarity with all questions connected with the care of the insane on the most advanced lines. The Congress concluded by the adoption of certain resolutions which will entitle the proceedings of this assembly at Antwerp to rank among the most important works that have been done in connection with the organisation of asylums and of colonies for the insane.
