Amplifying Voices, Embracing Humanity: Uniting for Humanistic Psychosis Care
A collaborative conference presented by Ellenhorn, Gould Farm, and the Erikson Institute of the Austen Riggs Center
Our conference gathers professionals and advocates who are dedicated to exploring innovative approaches to supporting the recovery of individuals with psychosis within residential and community settings. Grounded in humanistic principles, our three organizations will describe our treatment approach, what we are learning from the people we treat and the systems of care in the USA that are often fragmented. Community treatment provides a robust opportunity for recovery and moves beyond mere symptom reduction to include helping individuals discover a sense of purpose, identity, and belonging. We will learn together about the best practices to support clinicians, communities, and families, working with people experiencing psychosis.
We invite clinicians and those interested in the collaborative treatment of psychosis to come together to hear from leaders in clinical treatment and advocacy, to participate in small group discussions, and engage in conversations with those working in residential and community treatment settings.
Join us on June 7-8, 2024, in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains at Gould Farm, founded in 1913 as the first residential therapeutic community in the nation dedicated to helping adults with mental health challenges. Opportunities to be in conversation with professionals from Ellenhorn, specializing in the Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) model and integrative treatment modalities, and the Austen Riggs Center, founded in 1919 as a psychiatric hospital and residential treatment center with a continuum of care, and intensive individual psychotherapy within a therapeutic community program.
A central theme of our conference is the importance of recognizing the unique strengths and perspectives of individuals with psychosis. We believe that by embracing a person-centered approach, we can create treatment environments that honor the dignity and autonomy of each individual, fostering a sense of belonging and recovery.
