Description: Now in its 14th year, this exciting event will offer an update
on new research findings and important clinical topics for
patients with schizophrenia and their families.
In the morning, participants will learn about what
neuroscience and brain development are telling us about
schizophrenia. The afternoon will feature a panel of families
speaking about their experience with first episode
psychosis, as well as presentations focusing on family-based
and mentalization approaches to treatment.
We will share our vision of modern psychiatric treatment
that is preventive, patient-centered and oriented towards
recovery and physical health.
