This ISPS UK & The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation trust joint conference is not just for researchers – it’s for anyone who wants to increase the availability of psychodynamic therapy in our ‘evidence-based-medicine’ culture.
In recent years, partly because of the lack of evidence provided by ‘randomised trials’, psychodynamic therapy has become less available to people who experience psychosis. This conference is intended to be a step towards enabling people with psychosis to access wider range of therapy that meets their needs. In the current climate of ‘austerity’ and ‘evidence-based practice’, research can play a crucial role in this.
This conference brings together people with experience of psychosis, carers/family, clinicians and researchers to explore ideas about what research might be helpful and possible. The starting point for discussion will be a presentation by Bent Rosenhaum, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, who led recent Danish trials of psychodynamic therapy for people with first episode psychosis.
