Presentation by Dr. Nev Jones (Stanford) on psychosis and her work with the Bay Area Hearing Voices Network and Project Resource

When: Oct. 13th, 7:30-9pm
Where: Good Samaritan Hospital

Bio. Nev Jones PhD is a research psychologist and currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. She grew up with a parent with (severe) schizophrenia and was later diagnosed with schizophrenia herself (aka “wears many hats”). Nev’s research focuses on the sociocultural determinants of disability and recovery, phenomenological and developmental variations in psychosis, and the development of interventions aimed at improving functional outcomes, particularly in early psychosis. She is a core working group member of the International Consortium on Hallucination Research, and a research affiliate with Durham University’s award-winning Hearing the Voice project. Nev is also the acting board president of the Bay Area Hearing Voices Network, and the former director of both Chicago Hearing Voices and the Lived Experience Research Network.

Description. Nev’s presentation will cover her personal (and family) experiences as well as “myths versus research” regarding psychosis, emphasizing the emerging international consensus on the variability and heterogeneity of psychotic symptoms as they play out across etiology (causes), phenomenology, course and treatment response. She will then make a case for the pressing need to “personalize” treatments for psychosis in the US and expand the array of psychosocial and rehabilitative options available. Finally, she will link the above research to her grassroots advocacy efforts with the Bay Area Hearing Voices Network and the newly formed South Bay group, Project Resource
