Presented by Jean Lundquist, LCSW
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy’s utilization for treatment of psychosis is an evidence-based treatment that is becoming an integral part of mental health care. This training will focus on symptom specific treatments in correlation to CBT for Psychosis, specifically hallucinations, delusions, and negative symptoms. We will discuss addressing maladaptive thoughts and belief systems by identifying core beliefs and schemas that impact cognitive distortions and in turn worsen negative self-talk. There will also be an emphasis on third-wave CBT techniques, including Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness approaches. Practical application, case consultation, and vignettes will all be interspersed throughout this presentation.
