Description

Cognitive behavioural therapy for psychosis (CBT-P) is a well researched form of therapy that helps clinicians work with presentations of acute mental health concerns such as psychosis. The goal of CBT-P is to encourage observation and understanding of symptoms of psychosis so clients can actively respond to their psychotic experiences and decrease distress. This therapy is recommended for use alongside comprehensive usual care (case management and community mental health services) to help those with psychosis to improve their social and occupational functioning. This workshop will expand on recent theories around the causes and maintenance factors of psychosis and comorbid conditions. Participants will gain confidence in formulating case conceptualization and treatment surrounding clients’ psychotic symptoms and co-occurring psychological concerns. By the end of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to practice with numerous CBT-P skills that will help you reduce client distress and improve quality of life.
