ISPS-US Virtual Reading & Study Group

 

The ISPS-US Student & Early Career Committee (Marie C. Hansen, Terri Talley, Halle Thurnauer & Peter Pascatore) is pleased to announce the start of a new initiative– a virtual reading and study group.

Our first reading will be Psychotherapy of Schizophrenia: The Treatment of Choice by Bertram Karon and Gary Vandenbos, a classic text on the psychodynamic treatment of psychosis.

The reading selections will be on a two week cycle, with a week for reading and a week for discussion, using the following dates:

Week 1 (6.19-6.25) Read Chapters 1&2
Week 2 (6.26-7.2) Discussion
Week 3 (7.3-7.9) Read Chapters 3&4
Week 4 ( 7.10-7-16) Discussion
Week 5 (7.17-7.23) Read Chapters 5&6
Week 6 (7.24-7.30) Discussion
Week 7 (7.31-8.6) Read 7&8
Week 8 (8.7-8.13) Discussion
Week 9 (8.14-8.20) Read Chapters 9&10
Week 10 (8.21-8.27) Discussion

The reading group will be conducted through a closed Facebook group. You can access the group here. All ISPS members are welcome to join, with a special invitation to student and early career professionals.
