PTP Staff spoke at the 2nd Lambeth and Southwark Mind Annual Lecture held in conjunction with BLOCK336
Dorothée Bonnigal-Katz, an author, translator and psychoanalyst and the founder of the Psychosis Therapy Project, reflects on the last four years of establishing this ground-breaking project and on why it is of special value today. Dorothée found that many people experiencing psychosis were rarely deemed eligible for individual talk therapy and were often ill-served by antipsychotic medication and short-term therapies. However, her radical model of specialist treatment, with analysts working one-to-one with people over long periods and through crisis, has had remarkable results. Initially based in Islington, the project is now expanding to South London in the hope of becoming a London-wide service.
