Event description
This webinar will provide an overview of the research behind CBT for psychosis, and of the style and strategies used.

About this event

People experiencing psychosis are often feeling stuck in bewildering mental states, and it’s easy for professionals to get lost when they attempt to help. This may explain why for many decades, the consensus among professionals was that therapy could not be effective for those with psychosis! Fortunately, research has emerged showing that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as many related therapies can be modified to work reasonably well for people with various kinds of psychotic experiences.

This webinar will provide an overview of the research behind CBT for psychosis, and of the style and strategies used. There will then be discussion of approaches that can easily be integrated with CBT such as compassion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, family systems and dialogical approaches, and approaches developed within the hearing voices network. Resources for getting training in CBT for psychosis and related approaches will also be described.

Presenter

Ron Unger, LCSW is a therapist and educator specializing in CBT and related approaches for psychosis. His work emphasizes practical and humanistic ways of working with difficulties that too often have been framed as lifelong biological defects or as differences that cannot be understood. His special interests include the intersection of trauma, dissociation, psychosis, and spirituality, and his work is informed by his own personal experience of that intersection. Ron chairs the education committee of ISPS-US, and blogs at: recoveryfromschizophrenia.org.

Presented By

Organiser Mad in America

Organiser of Cognitive Behavioral & Related Therapies for Psychosis

Mad in America’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care in the United States (and abroad). We believe that the current drug-based paradigm of care has failed our society, and that scientific research, as well as the lived experience of those who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, calls for profound change.
