Trauma, Dissociation & Psychosis: CBT & Other Approaches to Understanding & Recovery
Course Description

A large number of studies now provide evidence that psychosis can be an understandable reaction to trauma, abuse, and other difficult life experiences, with dissociation involved in that reaction.

Explore a science-based yet humanistic conceptualization of extreme human experiences, and discover ways to use CBT and other methods to help people change their relationship with these experiences, while collaborating in building coherent and compassionate self-narratives that set the stage for real recovery.

Prior knowledge of CBT for psychosis is helpful but not required for this seminar.

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.
