Feeling ill-equipped to help people with psychosis?

Find out how your current CBT skills can easily and effectively treat this disorder, and to pick up a few new ones as well!

Are you one of the many that think of psychotic disorders as uniquely complex, quantitatively and qualitatively ‘different’ to other disorders.

How can psychological treatment help?

There is now good evidence that CBT effectively reduces symptoms and distress, and improves functioning in individuals with psychosis.

In fact, CBT for psychosis has been endorsed as a recommended therapeutic approach in major international clinical treatment guidelines including those from the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (UK), The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, and the American Psychiatric Association.

This seminar is for any CBT professionals who want to improve their responses to treating people with psychosis.

You will learn about the cognitive model that addresses the key symptoms of psychotic disorders including delusions, hallucinations and negative symptoms.

Gain practical and effective therapeutic strategies for addressing these symptoms and learn how you can easily and effectively adapt familiar CBT skills to suit the neurocognitive abilities of this population.
