ISPS is beginning to hold online meetings, which are expected to occur about monthly. The first such meeting will be Friday 12/12/14, noon EST, featuring Bertram Karon on the topic of “Who am I to treat this person? What it feels like to treat a ‘seriously mentally ill’ person.” Those who attend will have opportunities to ask questions and to share their thoughts.
For those of you not already familiar with Bertram Karon, you should know that he has extensive experience providing therapy for people diagnosed with schizophrenia and in researching such therapy, and is co-author of the book “Psychotherapy of schizophrenia: The treatment of choice.” He was also recently interviewed on Madness Radio. You can read a bit more about him, and also register for the online meeting, at https://ispswithkaron.eventbrite.com .
(Note that a donation is requested from non-members of ISPS, though no one is turned away for lack of funds.)
