Event description

Description

Who: Joris Corthouts is a master in Psychology (1999) and a behavioral therapist (2004). He works as a psychologist at the psychiatric hospital St Hiëronymus, Sint Niklaas (Belgium), where they apply ACT and recovery in the psychosis section. He regularly gives workshops on ACT and RFT. He is a board-member of ACBSBeNe and ISPSNederlandVlaanderen and a taskforce-member of the Psychosis SIG from the ACBS. He has published on psychosis and ACT.

What: Working with people who suffer from psychotic experiences how people with psychosis present is generally seen as a challenge. A lack of insight and the complexity of comorbidity limit the applicability of standard treatment protocols focusing on symptom reduction. Recently, the focus on personal recovery, instead of on clinical recovery, has gained momentum. Linked with the personal recovery focus, several authors discuss functional contextual approaches to psychosis (f.i. Morris, Johns & Oliver (2013); Wright, et al. (2014); Gaudiano (ed.) (2015)).

The purpose of this workshop is to get acquainted with how people with psychosis present, and how a contextual approach can be put into practice when working with these experiences. Starting from a contextual approach, we will discuss individual and group-work, where different disciplines have a role to play. Professionals (psychologist, nurse, occupational therapist, …) working with people who experience psychosis, will be able to exchange experiences and train skills.
