The Cooper Union #

New York, USA
The U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2015 guidebook, released Tuesday, has put The Cooper Union as the #1 Best Value for its region and the second best overall undergraduate school in its region. It also ranked the Albert Nerken School of Engineering at #8 nationally in its cohort with the electrical engineering program ranked fifth on the same national scale. "With our rigorous academic programs, low faculty to student ratio and continued selectivity, the editors recognize that The Cooper Union remains one of the top schools in the region," President Bharucha says. "We provide this academic quality while offering a 50% tuition scholarship, plus need-based aid. We are committed to meeting the highest standards of access and affordability." For the fourth year in a row The Cooper Union appeared as either the first or second ranked school in the guidebook's list of northeast U.S. schools that focus on undergraduate education but grant fewer than half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines. According to the methodology page, the ranking results from data gathered during the spring and summer of 2014 relating to "academic excellence," including peer assessment, retention and graduation of students, student selectivity and other factors. Rankings for the School of Engineering and its programs are based on peer judgments of deans and senior faculty who rated programs they are familiar with in two surveys conducted in the spring of 2014. The ranking of "Best Value" accompanies a related ranking of #3 on the U.S. News list of regional schools that leave graduating students with the least debt. In the past year The Cooper Union has appeared on three separately vetted lists as one of the nation's top ten Best Value schools. In January The Princeton Review ranked The Cooper Union the #6 Best Value school in the country. In July Money magazine ranked The Cooper Union as the #8 Best Value.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

ISPS international conferences have been an inspiring meeting place for clinicians, service users, family members, researchers, and administrators since the first symposium in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1956. 

In ISPS, we understand that mental or psychiatric disorders are dimensional disorders, where the final breakdown - psychosis - is often a reversible condition, preceded by a state of depression and anxiety too overwhelming for the psycho-biological regulatory system to handle. As such, we understand psychosis as something that could happen to anyone, given enough stress at a time when the self is at a vulnerable point. 

We challenge the idea that the difficult and chaotic symptoms of psychotic breakdown are meaningless, and find that we are able to understand people in these extreme states through their symptoms. Hallucinations or delusions are important messages to the self and the outer world, from the person within. We believe that creating a space for the understanding of symptoms as a form of human communication is central to the healing relationship that can occur between people experiencing extreme states and the workers who help them. WIth this approach, we can build mental health services of which we can be really proud, which acknowledge the person and the importance of affects; services which make space for relational understanding of human problems.

The ISPS community has such a breadth of knowledge, experience, and skill, and an ISPS conference is an enriching and supportive dialogue with the goal of improving services.

We are really excited to again have an international ISPS conference in the USA after 21 years, and to come to New York CIty for the first time. The USA has had a central role in the developing of a bridge between the neurosciences and the psychological understandings of the human mind and behavior, a bridge which confirms what psychologically oriented theorists and practitioners have long understood.

We look forward to sharing a rich conference experience with participants from all over the world along with our American colleagues in one of the most culturally and intellectually exhilarating cities of the world.
