Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis: Understanding the Basics, a webinar by Sarah Kopelovich, PhD
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis is a psychotherapeutic treatment for psychotic symptoms with a broad base of evidence supporting its effectiveness. Despite being included in national treatment guidelines for the treatment of schizophrenia spectrum disorders, CBTp is not widely available, in part due to a shortage of mental health professionals trained to administer it.
As part of her ongoing efforts to address this shortage, Dr. Kopelovich provides this one-hour introduction to CBTp. She gives an overview of the evidence base supporting CBTp implementation, the core principles involved in CBTp treatment, considerations in the application of CBTp in persons experiencing psychosis, and provides recommendations for resources for further education or training.
This webinar was offered by the Clinical Support System for Serious Mental Illness (CSS-SMI) in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). CSS-SMI is a clinical support system and electronic learning community for mental health professionals and consumers.
