“Responding to the Stigma of Psychosis” | Andrew Gumley | TEDxUniversityofGlasgowSalon

   TEDx Talks
   Published: 1 week ago


Psychosis refers to a group of mental health problems that are characterised by unusual experiences such as seeing things or hearing voices (often referred to as hallucinations) or unusual beliefs such as feeling one is being persecuted by external organisations (often referred to as delusions).
In order to counter stigma and discrimination surrounding psychosis we need to address imbalances of power by acknowledging and normalising psychotic experiences, engaging with a wide range of communities, and valuing the expertise derived from lived experience of psychosis. Andrew Gumley is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council UK and a Professor of Psychological Therapy. He is a leading international researcher investigating psychological interventions for people with psychosis. He developed and evaluated the first ever randomised controlled trial of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for the prevention of relapse in people with Schizophrenia. He has also undertaken extensive research into the the importance of fear of recurrence as a block to recovery in people with psychosis and the importance of attachment as a basis for resilience and recovery. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
