Latest News

  • Talking Therapies for Schizophrenia and the Journal Science
    An article on talking therapies for 'schizophrenia' was recently published in Science, one of the world's leading scientific journals.
     
    The article, by journalist Michael Balter, is a result of discussions with a number of clinicians - including ISPS members - and a summary of evidence from CBT and psychodynamic researches.  The article had to be very much based on evidence from controlled trials for this particular journal.
     
    The article is excellent publicity for some of the approaches that ISPS supports and it is made humanly meaningful by quoting the experiences of individual patients. Full text article now available
