CBT for Psychosis: An Individualized, Recovery Oriented Approach
Course Description

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for psychosis is an evidence-based method to reduce distress and disability related to psychotic experiences. These experiences are conceptualized less as "symptoms" of an underlying disorder, and more as being possibly understandable in relationship to an individual's life story, and capable of being altered when people experiment with different ways of thinking and behaving.

Learn how to collaborate with people who are experiencing psychosis, "exploring the evidence" rather than imposing beliefs, and assisting in developing coping options that support realistic hopes for a return to wellness.

This class can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Certificate program. For information about this program, click here.
