High-Yield Cognitive Behavioral Techniques for Psychosis for Psychiatric Care Providers


The purpose of this workshop is to orient psychiatric care providers to the most recent empirical literature on the cognitive behavioral approach to treating individuals with psychotic symptoms, to introduce a recovery-oriented and culturally-aware biopsychosocial model for treating psychosis, and to provide training in high-yield skills and strategies for this population.

  • Identify the theoretical principles of CBTp
  • Use high-yield CBTp-informed strategies to reduce distress and disability associated with psychotic symptoms
  • Access high-quality resources for patients, families, and professionals
  • Learn how to advocate for CBTp in learner’s respective places of employment
