The Workshop on Computational Linguistics and Clinical Psychology
CLPsych, a workshop series founded in 2014
Since 2014, CLPsych has brought together researchers in computational linguistics and NLP, who use computational methods to better understand human language, infer meaning and intention, and predict individuals’ characteristics and potential behavior, with psychology researchers and practitioners, who are focused on psychopathology and neurological health and engage directly with the needs of providers and their patients. This workshop’s distinctly interdisciplinary nature has improved the exchange of knowledge, fostered collaboration, and increased the visibility of mental health as a problem domain in NLP.
The most recent CLPsych workshop was held remotely on June 11, 2021, as part of the 2021 Conference of the North American Association for Computational Linguistics.
