The meeting will be composed by:

  • - Three plenary lectures concerning gender differences in several aspects.

The Scientific Committee encourages you to participate and submit proposals for symposium, oral communications or poster, in order to share knowledge on the research carried on by the different teams that are currently working in the topic of psychosis and gender.

And to help you to decide, Barcelona is a beautiful city in autumn.

Significant Gender Differences Found in Psychosis Outcome Joan Arehart-Treichel

Women with schizophrenia fare better than do men with the illness, various retrospective studies have found. Now a longitudinal investigation further supports these results.

The study was headed by Linda Grossman, Ph.D., a professor of psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Grossman reported the results at APA's 2006 annual meeting in Toronto in May. The results are also published in the June Psychiatric Services.
