High-Yield Cognitive Behavioral Techniques for Psychosis

for Psychiatric Care Providers

Treatment guidelines in the U.S. recommend that CBTp be used alongside pharmacological intervention in the treating of schizophrenia spectrum disorders. Yet, CBTp has failed to become the standard of care when treating individuals with psychosis. Psychiatric Care Providers tend to have the most consistent access to patients with SSDs and can integrate and reinforce cognitive behavioral techniques in to their routine encounters. The purpose of this workshop is to teach psychiatric care providers about the empirical support of CBTp as well as skills and strategies to better engage clients experiencing psychosis. 

This two-day in-person workshop will consist of lecture (from CBTp experts), audio and video presentation, and role play demonstrations.

 

About the Instructors: Dr. Sarah Kopelovich, PhD is a forensically-trained licensed clinical psychologist at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She regularly conducts workshops, seminars, and professional consultation across the country for an array of mental health professionals in CBT for psychosis.

Dr. Jessica Maura, PhD is a Senior Fellow in Psychosis Treatment and Recovery at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Her research has focused primarily on the impact that culture and other psychosocial factors have on the diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia spectrum disorders, as well as examining the efficacy of culturally adapted interventions for schizophrenia.

When: February 13 and 14, 2020, 9am-4:30pm

Where: Seattle, WA

Cost: $300 per person (Free for all University of Washington staff, students, and trainees)

*Continuing Medical Education (CME) will be provided*
