Durham University and Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust Joint Special Interest Group for Psychosis (JSIGP) is open to all staff working in either the Trust or University. However, it will be of particular interest to those staff working in ‘psychosis services’ or who are involved in research within the field. A warm welcome is also extended to any service users who would like to attend. The group meets on a regular basis to discuss a wide range of topics and speakers.
The next meeting, featuring a presentation by Alex Hunter ‘Empathic Resonance – Paradigm Regained?’ will be held on Wednesday October 29th 2014 from 5.30 – 7PM in the Joachim Room, College of St Hild and St Bede, Durham University (30 on this map).
Alex will be talking about his own personal experience of unusual mental states and his journey to recovery. His presentation explores ‘Empathetic Resonance Therapy’ – the therapeutic process he has devised as a result of his experiences, the unexpected echoes this finds with psychoanalysis, and its relevance to voice-hearers.
Places are limited for this event. To reserve a place, please fill in our online registration form.
Service users and their families and friends who attend meetings of the Joint Special Interest Group for Psychosis can receive an honorarium of £20 plus travelling expenses. For more information and to obtain the relevant claim forms, please contact Valentina Short.
