Trauma, severe mental health difficulties and their treatment – what have we learned and what can we learn through evidence synthesis?
Wednesday 28th February 2018, 16:00-17:00.
Main Lecture Theatre, Sussex Education Centre, Millview Hospital Site, Hove. BN3 7HY.
Speaker: Dr Filippo Varese, Clinical Lecturer, University of Manchester, Clinical Psychologist and Director of the Complex Trauma and Resilience Research Unit, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
Abstract: Dr Filippo Varese's talk will provide an overview of different evidence syntheses and meta-analyses he has conducted on the link between trauma and the risk of developing severe mental health difficulties (psychosis, bipolar disorder), the psychological mechanisms that may be responsible for this association and the efficacy of psychological interventions for severe mental health difficulties (in particular CBT for psychosis). Through this talk, Filippo will discuss how new development in advanced evidence synthesis methods (in particular meta-analysis of individual patient data) can allow us to address new and yet unexplored clinical research questions that are yet unresolved, or at best poorly addressed, using conventional primary and secondary research methodologies.
