Conférence en anglais: Psychosis: Reframing the Concept

Conférencier : Prof.Dr. Ph.A.E.G. (Philippe) Delespaul (°1958) is full professor in Innovation in Mental Health Care at the University of Maastricht (Department of Psychiatry and Neuropsychology). He is a clinical psychologist at the Mondriaan Mental Health Trust in Maastricht/Heerlen (The Netherlands) and advises the direction and the regional stakeholders about care innovations. He is board member of the national quality monitoring institute for ambulatory mental health care (CCAF) and the Global Initiative on Psychiatry (Benelux chapter). He worked in residential and ambulatory care, primarily with a focus on severe mental health and developed the PsyMate™ method to assess the daily life of disabled individuals. He is one of the initiators of the Dutch New Mental Health Movement and focuses on human right monitoring for this population. He published 2 books, more than 50 chapters in edited books and over 200 peer reviewed international papers.

Research on brain behavior and psychopharmacology is stagnating. We better understand the process of psychosis but fail to provide innovative medication and miracle cures. This is frustrating for researchers and clinicians, but even more for patients and their family. Meanwhile, the focus shifts from fixing the illness, towards managing vulnerability and developing resilience. The recovery movement reframes our approach to psychotic illness quick-fix cure towards process care. It makes clear that qualitative living is possible, irrespective of psychosis. The process is hope-driven and has an open future. It offers new hope for patients and family.
