    The purpose of this letter is to formally invite you, on behalf of the Organizing committee to be a speaker at the upcoming “3rd International Conference on Clinical and Counseling Psychology” to be held during August 20-21, 2018 at Singapore.
    Clinical Psychologists 2018 is an excellent platform to discuss critically important research and to intensify collaborations and scientific research. It is important for us to be able to bring together our peers around a hot topic--normally we do this by organizing major conferences. We therefore conclaved 3rd International Conference on Clinical and Counseling Psychology as a means of giving researchers the opportunity to bring their own community together and bring focus to their topic upon their own initiative.
    We have developed a globalized platform for you to launch and manage your Research Topic, allowing you to handle every aspect of your presentation as easily as possible with the full support of the Clinical Psychologists 2018 Organizing Committee Members.
    Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder-and provoke conversations that matter.
