DIALOGUES WITH MADNESS

Ron Unger, LCSW, is a therapist and educator specializing in cognitive therapy for psychosis, and in understanding and working with the relationships between trauma and psychosis. His interest in this topic began when he had his own experience of extreme or psychotic states of mind as a young man, experiences he was fortunate enough to work through without psychiatric intervention.

He is the author of the blog recoveryfromschizophrenia.org and is the coordinator for a chapter of MindFreedom, a group working for human rights and alternatives in the mental health system. He is also chair of the educational committee for ISPS-US and you can contact him at [email protected] for information about training in psychological approaches for psychosis.
