Dr Bob Johnson is consultant psychiatrist with many years experience of research and success in aiding the recovery of psychosis sufferers. His work a a consultant psychiatrist in the Special Unit at Parkhurst Prison, Isle of Wight (1991-1996) formed the basis of a powerful documentary investigation by the BBC’s Panorama. He believes the central causative factor in psychosis is fear, which leads to ‘frozen terror’, caused by traumas that have long ceased in the real world, but which persist in the sufferer’s head (a variant form of PTSD). He holds the controversial view that mental disorders are software based, not hardware, and are 100% curable.

Dr Bob Johnson will explain the rationale to psychotic symptoms and how they remain because they are too painful to shift and describe his model for recovery, which explores how solid emotional support can bridge the gap between earliest survival techniques and adulthood, so escaping ‘Nursery Nightmares’.
