Tony Morrison, another reason to register for #ISPS2015NYC !

 

  Plenary Highlight: Professor Tony Morrison

We are pleased to welcome Tony Morrison as a plenary speaker at the 19th conference of ISPS, to be held in March in New York City.

Dr. Morrison has been a leader in developing the application of cognitive behavioral therapy to the problems of psychosis (CBTp). His research has focused on delineating the elements of CBTp, examining links between trauma and psychosis, and exploring patient choice and user-led research, as well as research on the effectiveness of CBTp for people not on antipsychotic medication. He has written many articles, as well as treatment manuals, and is a professor at The University of Manchester, UK.
