NAMI Marin General Meeting - Speaker Ann Kring
New Hope for Understanding and Treating the
Negative Symptoms of Schizophrenia.
Does your loved one seem unmotivated or uninterested in doing things? Can you tell how your loved one is feeling by the expressions on their face? In this presentation, you will learn more about the research on emotion expression and feelings in schizophrenia which are part of the so-called negative symptoms. I will present research that shows how people with schizophrenia can feel strong emotions even if they don’t express them and how they can enjoy being with other people or working on a project even if they don’t look forward to doing these things. I will also talk about new clinical assessments and treatments for negative symptoms.
SPEAKER: Ann Kring is Professor and Chair in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley where she directs the Emotion and Social Interaction Laboratory (http://esilab.berkeley.edu) and is a member of the Institute for Personality and Social Research and an affiliate of the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute. Her research focuses on emotion and psychopathology, specifically emotional features of schizophrenia, including negative symptoms, decision-making, and the linkage between social motivation and emotion. She has studied emotion and schizophrenia for over 25 years.
This is a no fee event, open to the general public.
