Conference: 103rd Annual Meeting of the American Psychopathological Association
Date: 7-9 March 2013
Location: Grand Hyatt New York, New York, NY, U.S.A.
Contact: Web site: http://www.appassn.org/2013.html
Description:

This meeting is devoted to a discussion of “where we have been and where we are going” – especially with respect to the compelling hypotheses to be tested in the next generation of research. The meeting opens with the documentary film, Kings Park, a powerful depiction of the lives of people who spent their early adult years in a state mental institution. We then review findings from long-term studies of adult and childhood onset disorders with an eye to identifying the pivotal issues to be addressed in future research. Next, we focus on diagnosis and on boundary issues that challenge the fundamental essence of outcomes research. Questions are then raised about the meaning of recovery as conceptualized by senior investigators at the forefront of their fields and critiqued by our peers through the lens of personal experience.
