Post Capgras syndrome - magazine interview opportunity

LBDA was contacted by writer for a psychology magazine in the Netherlands who would like to interview a patient/caregiver duo (ideally in California) that are dealing with Capgras syndrome, which is common in LBD.

Capgras syndrome is a disorder in which a person holds a delusion that a friend, spouse, parent or other close family member has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor.

This writer is traveling to California during the third week in August, so while a caregiver/patient in California would be ideal, other western states may also hold potential for an in-person interview.

If you are interested in being interviewed for this story, please send a brief summary about your personal experience with Capgras syndrome and LBD to me at ataylor (space)

Many thanks for your help in raising awareness about LBD and Capgras syndrome!
