NB This Abstract Book is preliminary and will be subject to changes

On August 29th epidemiological researchers and (cultural) experts with qualitative knowledge will try to  come up with an answer to the question: Why are  people belonging to minority groups with low status  5 to 8 times more likely to experience psychosis? What does that tell us about the dynamics of psychosis when we compare it with the circumstances of people with psychosis who are not from a minority group? Keynote speakers.

What  should we do about it? The afternoon  will be spent looking at approaches  focused on this problem. Keynote speakers.

Thursday August 29th: Theme relationship psychosis with migration, social exclusion and lowstatus group

On August 30th people with lived experience, family members and clinicians will discuss the alienation between someone who is psychotic and  others. Will non- medical models of psychosis help, or should we try other therapeutic approaches?

Friday August 30th: Lived experience takes the lead

August 31st will be a day open to the public for a reduced price. The voice of psychosis (? What do you mean by voice? Hallucinations i.e. hearing voices etc? will be discussed, what does it tell us about society?
Is the road to psychosis the same as that to Jihad? What does it mean that the destruction of the world is so often a theme of psychosis? Other ways of organising society, for instance in the spirit of Ubuntu Philosophy, will be explored. Keynote speakers.

Saturday August 31st: Psychosis, (forced) migration, society and politics (Day open for interested parties at reduced price)

The morning of September 1st will be spent looking at new research. 
Keynote speakers. The conference will end with a debate.

Sunday September 1st: Looking back and looking forward 

Welcome to ISPS Rotterdam 2019!
