Facilitator: Noah Lazar, PhD., C.Psych.

This training is suitable for: Mental health professionals, medical professionals and direct service workers.

Overview: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an empirically validated and widely used problem-oriented psychotherapeutic approach that examines the relationships between thoughts, behaviours and emotions. Interventions are generally targeted towards reducing distress through psychoeducation, the modification of cognitions and behavioural experimentation. Over the last twenty years, there have been considerable advances in applying CBT principles to treat psychosis, such that CBT can be a helpful adjunct to pharmacotherapy.

This workshop will cover a CBT conceptualization of psychosis, common misconceptions regarding the suitability of this population for psychotherapy, as well as an overview of the treatment rationale and CBT strategies that are most helpful for these clients. Participants will also learn how to treat delusions, hallucinations, thought and disorder and negative symptoms. Time will be provided to examine some of the outcome literature highlighting the effectiveness of CBT in treating psychosis.

Learning Objectives:
Understand the CBT model for psychosis
Treat delusions, hallucinations, thought and disorder and negative symptoms

This is Learning Module 2 of the 2019 Certificate in CBT Level 2. This module may be taken separately from the certificate program as a stand-alone workshop.
