Cognitive behavioural therapy interventions for psychosis

Cognitive behavioural therapy interventions for psychosis

This two-day workshop, presented on consecutive Mondays, will provide participants with an introduction to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles that can be used in working with young people experiencing psychotic disorders. The workshop will use multimedia and interactive formats, and include didactic elements, case studies, and skills-based work.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • describe the theory and rationale underpinning the CBT model;
  • outline the evidence base for the use of CBT with people experiencing psychotic disorders;
  • complete a cognitive behavioural case formulation;
  • identify strategies for effective provision of psycho-education;
  • discuss the role of trauma in work with young people with psychosis;
  • identify strategies in working with young people experiencing hallucinations; and
  • describe how to work effectively and compassionately with people experiencing delusions.
