Cognitive Behavioural Therapy interventions for psychosis

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy interventions for psychosis

Cognitive behavioural interventions for psychosis have a strong evidence-base, and are recommended in most international treatment guidelines for this population. However, this treatment approach often requires adaptation when working with young people early in the course of psychosis. This two-day workshop will provide participants with an introduction to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles that can be used in working with young people experiencing psychotic disorders.

At the completion of this workshop you will be able to:

  • describe the rationale and evidence-base for the CBT model in young people experiencing psychosis;
  • complete a cognitive behavioural case formulation;
  • identify strategies for effective psychoeducation; and
  • describe how to work effectively and compassionately with people experiencing hallucinations and delusions.

Day one - Monday 19 August 2024

Day two - Monday 26 August 2024


The training will comprise didactic and interactive experiential sessions. The workshop will include PowerPoint slides, video clips, online documents, and both large and small group discussions. Regular short breaks will be included throughout the training.
