CBT has been shown to reduce the distress associated with the symptoms of psychosis. Studies have demonstrated that CBT can result in decreased positive symptoms, improvement in negative symptoms, and improved functioning. The 3 hour training will review basic principles of CBT while focusing on specific components in the following main phases; engagement and befriending, assessment of experiences, formulation development, application of intervention and skills building and consolidation of skills. The training will provide a case example, group activity and discussion to enhance the learning experience.
