Early Intervention in Psychosis Masterclass

One Day Masterclass:  Early Psychosis: Latest Developments in Prevention, Prediction and Treatment

A Masterclass for clinicians and researchers


Event description

People who experience a psychotic illness, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, can and do recover. However, long-term recovery is dependent on the early detection of psychotic symptoms and the delivery of timely and effective treatment. This one-day masterclass will provide an overview of the latest developments in early intervention in psychosis. It is aimed at both clinicians and researchers with an interest in the prediction, prevention and treatment of the illness. The masterclass, organised by the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, will be delivered by clinical academics with extensive experience in this area, including Professor Sir Robin Murray (IoPPN), Professor Philip McGuire (IoPPN), Professor Patrick McGorry (University of Melbourne) and Professor Peter Uhlhaas (University of Glasgow).

Learning Objectives

Attendees of the masterclass will develop in-depth understanding of:

  • Rationale and evidence-base for early intervention in psychosis

  • Addressing the physical health needs of people with early psychosis
  • Substance misuse in early psychosis, and its implications for detection and treatment
