Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis: An Individualized, Recovery Oriented Approach
February 12, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for psychosis is an evidence-based method to help people reduce distress and disability related to psychotic experiences, and to support a possible full recovery. Learn how to collaborate with people having difficult and confusing experiences, “exploring the evidence” rather than imposing your own beliefs, and helping people develop well informed coping options so they are not forced to rely entirely on medications that may have limited effectiveness.
This seminar is designed to give mental health workers practical strategies they can put to work immediately, as well as to stimulate an interest in learning more about this approach. Prior knowledge of CBT is helpful but not required.
Ron Unger, LCSW, is a therapist and therapy supervisor practicing in Eugene OR, specializing in cognitive behavioral therapy and related approaches for psychosis.
