Abstract Book (download here)
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.
