Saturday 26 November 2016, from 9:00 – 4:45
The International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis (ISPS UK)
At Amnesty International
25 New Inn Yard
A conference not just for psychotherapists and psychological therapists, but for mental health professionals of all disciplines, people with lived experience of psychosis, and family members.
It is widely accepted that trauma can increase the likelihood of someone experiencing psychosis. Yet, in a field that is continually evolving, there is no simple answer to the question of how best to help someone struggling with psychosis to work through their experiences in psychotherapy. This conference explores key issues in understanding and working with people who experience psychosis and the impact of traumatic life experiences. Reflecting the context that we live and work in, it will create a dialogue between those who practise psychodynamic psychotherapy and those who experience psychosis first-hand.
The programme will cover contemporary psychodynamic approaches to trauma, psychosis and voice hearing. There will also be an open space in which conference participants will be able to select topics and groups for discussion.
ISPS UK Members: £105 (standard), £75 (early bird, deadline has been extended until 1 October 2016)
Non-members: £125 (standard), £105 (early bird, deadline has been extended until 1 October 2016)
