DGPPN award for nursing and health care professions in psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosomatics! Congratulations Lydia

The DGPPN awards the DGPPN prize for nursing and healthcare professions in psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosomatics, which is endowed with 5,000 euros.

This prize is intended to honor exemplary, innovative projects, models and scientific studies of the nursing and healthcare professions within the psychiatric treatment and care forms (outpatient and inpatient setting), which in particular support the development of practice. Innovative interdisciplinary work is very welcome.

Lydias gesture training program for patients with schizophrenia is a wonderful example of a fruitful cooperation between clinical linguistics, psychology and psychiatry to improve quality of life in patients with schizophrenia (see Riedl et al., 2022).

Well deserved!!!
