Search for Treatments in Early Psychosis (STEP)
Seventh Biennial Symposium

The "Search for Treatments in Early Psychosis (STEP):  Seventh Biennial Symposium" (MC52) is scheduled to take place May 18, 2012 at the Sheraton Station Square.  This conference will focus on recent studies suggesting that early identification and intervention may favorably influence outcomes in psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. 

The Seventh Biennial Search for Treatments in Early Psychosis (STEP) Symposium will bring together international experts in the psychology, neurobiology, and treatment of schizophrenia.  During the conference, they will present state-of-the-art information regarding the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment of schizophrenia, including developmental changes relevant to psychotic disorders, factors that could contribute to psychosis onset through impacting typical development, and early identification and interventions for early psychosis.
