Welcome to ISPS
ISPS was founded by Gaetano Benedetti and Christian Müller,
two young psychiatrists who wanted a more humane treatment for people with psychosis.
ISPS has been organising international and regional conferences since 1956. Learn more about the history of ISPS at the ISPS website
ISPS carries on promoting psychological and social approaches even in times when it is not fashionable to do so.
ISPS has a tradition of dialogue: clinicians from different therapeutic approaches, researchers,
people with lived experience and family members are all in conversation with each other through ISPS.
