ISPS Conference - Poland - August 2013

ISPS NZ is very pleased to announce the upcoming ISPS International conference to be held in Poland August 2013:
The Psychological Therapies For Psychosis
Best practice in the psychological therapies for psychosis.
A contemporary and global perspective.
A conference for all mental health practitioners.
22 – 25.08.2013 Warsaw, University of Warsaw, Poland
Really good practices in the psychotherapies of the psychoses schizophrenia are known and respected locally but our conference intends to assist in their wider dissemination.

However in too many places no psychological therapy is offered to persons with psychotic disorders. We need to address how to address this at a time of finite resources in the global crisis.

During the ISPS Warsaw Conference we hope you will come with your knowledge and a willingness to learn from about a range of psychological therapies for psychosis in a rich dialogue between clinicians, researchers, policy makers and representatives from patient and family organizations so you will return home with ideas on how to optimize psychological care and the rehabilitation of patients with psychosis.

Please visit and for more information.
