One of the very highlights during the international ISPS conference in NYC 2015 was the presentation by Anne Cooke and Peter Kinderman regarding the groundbreaking report ”Understanding Psychosis and Schizophrenia: why people sometimes hear voices, believe things that others find strange, or appear out of touch with reality, and what can help” which presents a far broader, richer and complex description of that which is called psychosis and schizophrenia than usually is described. The fact that both Cooke and Kinderman very well know what they talk about makes their presentation even more valuable and ‘a must’ for those of us who meet people who most often are defined ‘psychiatric patients’. They present in a vivid way using their own experience so that each and every one realize the importance of creating a shift the way we talk to and about people who need support for a time in their life.
We are pleased to announce that Anne and Peter will be coming to the festival. Welcome to listen to their presentation and take the opportunity to talk with them during the breaks!
