NADD, also known as The National Association for the Dually Diagnosed, was founded in 1983 as a not-for-profit Association. The catalyst for the founding of NADD arose from the need for an open forum to promote and exchange of ideas, principals & concepts concerning individuals who have the co-existence of ID/D and mental illness.
NADD has been growing at a steady pace since its inception. We are now recognized as the leading organization providing conferences, educational services and training materials to many thousands of people in the United States and world-wide. Through the dissemination of cutting edge knowledge, we have been influential in the development of appropriate community based policies, programs, and opportunities in addressing the mental health needs of persons who have ID/D.
NADD has been successful in promoting services that bridge the gap between the mental health and developmental disabilities structures. The division of responsibility between the mental health and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities service systems has resulted all too often in a denial of comprehensive care and treatment for individuals who have ID/D concurrent with a serious mental health problem. NADD is a national leading force advocating on behalf of individuals who have mental illness and ID/D.
NADD has grown rapidly since its founding in 1983 and is now represented in every state in the United States and in Canada, Australia, Japan as well as in Europe.
Two young Swiss Psychiatrists, Christian Müller and Gaetano Benedetti, dissatisfied with the treatment of schizophrenia at the time, decided to gather together colleagues interested in the psychoanalytic treatment of schizophrenia. For the first 40 years of its existence the ISPS focused on organizing Symposiums every 3 years for clinicians to exchange ideas about their work. During these early years the ISPS acronym stood for the International Symposium for the Psychotherapy of Schizophrenia.
ISPS is an international organization promoting psychotherapy and psychological treatments for persons with psychosis. We are committed to advancing education, training and knowledge of mental health professionals in the treatment and prevention of psychotic mental disorders. We seek to achieve the best possible outcomes for service users by engaging in meaningful partnership with health professionals, service users, families and carers.
Our desire to discover who we are – why we feel and act the ways we do – is what leads us to a meaningful and vital existence. PsychAlive was created to assist you in this personal journey by providing a place where people can learn to take an active, introspective approach to their lives. The articles, blogs, videos, quizzes and interactive workshops featured on PsychAlive introduce visitors to sound psychological principles and practices, while offering an insightful means of coping with life’s everyday problems. The tools available on PsychAlive are designed to help people understand the emotional dynamics that operate within us and the limitations that restrict us in our daily lives. By helping us to recognize what’s at the core of our emotional struggles and to target the specific ways we limit ourselves, PsychAlive encourages us to understand and challenge the deeper issues that keep us from living a life that is as joyful, rewarding and meaningful as it could be.
The Psychonomic Society is open to those who are interested in experimental psychology, but mainly its members work with cognitive psychology. The Psychonomic Society “broke off” from the APA in 1959 due to the APA being focused on clinical psychology.
Also, to be a member of the Psychonomic Society, a member must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in their field and have published significant research other than their dissertation.
