An ISPS “Online Meeting” with Bertram Karon

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.)

One Response to An ISPS “Online Meeting” with Bertram Karon

  1. Ron thanks for organising the Online Meeting with Bertram Karon. And thanks to Bertram Karon for an interesting presentation and Q&A session.

    I appreciated the opportunity at the beginning to say hello and for me the question time at the close of the session was particularly informative, to hear Dr Karon respond from his life’s wisdom, work and experience.

    I look forward to the next topic and hearing from Michael Cornwall about the Bay Area Mandala Project.

    All the best, Chrys
