EPA Section Chair publishes new book

Giovanni Stanghellini (Chair of the EPA Section Philosophy and Psychiatry) and René Rosfort recently published a new book, Emotions and Personhood Exploring Fragility - Making Sense of Vulnerability.

This book explores the relationship between our emotions and our sense of self, considering the important role this relationship plays in mental illness.

Drawing on research from psychiatry, psychopathology, philosophy and neuroscience, this book will be valuable for both students and researchers in these disciplines, and more broadly, within the field of mental health. Read more here.
It's not too late to sign up for EPA 2013!

We look forward to seeing you in Nice for what promises to be a very stimulating and enjoyable Congress!
