  1. This sounds like a very interesting conference on an issue that I’m vey interested with a population that I think even amongst psychologists can sometimes be looked upon with a bit of disdain due to societal perceptions. Another aspect that I think we need to look at treatment though is through ethics, like how’ve we looked at it through the lens of research. The New York Times had a very interesting piece ( that talks about psychology’s need to promote the efficacy of treatment modalities other than pharmaceutical intervention. I think that conferences like this are one of the areas where this can begin.
