Emily Owens, Ph.D.
- Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Psychosis (CBTp) utilizes a large set of evidence-based practices that are effective for psychotic-spectrum disorders. This webinar will focus specifically on assessment and interventions that are useful for your general, "everyday" psychotherapy practice. Rather than a typical "Introduction to CBTp" course (recommendations for such courses will be provided during the training), this course will focus on CBTp skills that are applicable for individuals presenting with other primary diagnoses but struggle with subthreshold, transient, or prodromal symptoms of psychosis. Topics will include strategies to manage hearing voices, general suspiciousness, and the relationship between trauma and psychosis.
Intermediate level:This course is best for established professionals, early career professionals and students who already have a background in and foundational knowledge of Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
- Recall how to give psychoeducation to clients who report symptoms of psychosis.
- Employ CBTp strategies that target specific needs of clients.
- Adapt general CBT interventions for individuals reporting symptoms of psychosis.
