About the ISPS-US Conference
ISPS champions the application of psychoanalysis, cognitive-behavioral and related individual, family and group therapies, in contrast to the current reliance on medication to treat psychotic disorders. Their rich conference brings together mental health professionals—psychologists, psychiatrists and nurses—as well as service users and their families. Topics discussed include all schools and methods of psychotherapy; drama, art and music therapy; psychotherapy’s interaction with genetics and neurology; the realities of those who have experienced psychosis; and phenomenology and society. This promises to be the most exciting psychology-and psychotherapy-related conference of the year. Click here to read the conference program.
