Upcoming ISPS Conferences and Events

ISPS Lowlands Conference - in cooperation with PC St Hiëronymus

Belgium Friday, 23 November 2018 St Niklaas

Buiten de lijntjeskleuren: Psychosezorg anno 2018 (Coloring outside the lines: Dealing with psychosis in 2018)

The concept of psychosis(vulnerability) is one big and complex story. Not only are there very individual experiences. With different perspectives on the situation (“what’s happening?”), is the request for guidance dissimilar for those involved and their surroundings. Supporting people who deal with psychotic experiences and their loved one’s doesn’t appear to be a “one-size-fits-all”-story. Treatment as usual is seldom applicable – creativity and inventiveness the more.

-        Presenters: Dirk en Mira Bryssinck, JorisCorthouts, Lucas Joos, JopMunneke, Eddo Rats, Saskia Talboom, Erik Thys, Emile Van Bellingen

Placing psychosocial approaches to psychosis at the heart of the NHS

Join us for an evening of dialogue with guest panel featuring May McCann, Jamie Murphy, Ciaran Shannon and Clive Travis (who will chair the discussion).

A core aim of ISPS UK is to promote social and psychological approaches to psychosis - yet in a culture of increasing cuts and short term fixes, this is no easy task. Join us for an evening of discussion, debate and exploration to consider some of the challenges to embedding psychosocial approaches within the NHS and some practical steps we can all take to address these.
