Beating the Stigma of “Psychosis”
June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The stigma of “mental illness” can be as big a barrier to the achievement of an individual’s goals as the symptoms and potential disabilities associated with psychosis and extreme states. This presentation will distinguish harm wrought by public versus self stigma. Dr. Corrigan will review the research on outcomes of stigma intervention, perhaps surprisingly showing the limitations of education, and instead resting on the efficacy of contact-based experiences.
