18th Annual ISPS-US Conference

November 01 - 03, 2019

New Haven, CT

The goal of the ISPS-US conference is to present new and more nuanced understandings of the relationships between alienation and isolation and psychosis, and to highlight the degree to which a sense of safety and belonging—to family, to community, and to the world—can foster resilience and promote recovery in vulnerable individuals. This program will interest psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, therapists, nurses, peer specialists and other mental health professionals, students, academics and attorneys, as well as members of the lay public, including people with lived experience of psychosis/extreme states and their families, who are interested in learning about the experience and treatment of psychosis and extreme states.
