Event description

Description

A large number of studies now provide strong evidence that psychosis can often be an understandable reaction to trauma, abuse, and other difficult life experiences, with dissociation at the center of that reaction. Explore a science based yet humanistic conceptualization of extreme human experiences, and discover ways to use CBT and other methods to help people change their relationship with these experiences, including collaborating with them in building coherent and compassionate self narratives that set the stage for real recovery. Prior knowledge of CBT for psychosis is helpful but not required for this seminar.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify possible interrelationships between trauma, dissociation, and psychosis, including ways that psychosis itself, and reactions to psychosis by others, can be traumatizing
  • Discern a variety of possible causal routes from trauma to psychotic experiences, and understand the possible role of dissociation within that process
  • Utilize proven cognitive strategies to address command and persecutory voices, and other common yet distressing experiences found in trauma-associated psychosis
  • Integrate cognitive therapy for psychosis with other trauma therapies to effectively treat clients who have experienced both trauma and psychosis
  • Assist clients in developing coherent and compassionate stories of trauma and recovery which provide a positive alternative to both fragmented “psychotic” stories, and to helplessness-inducing “mental illness” stories.

6 ASWB and/or APA CE Credits Approved.
