Telehealth and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis

The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (NW-MHTTC) presents TWO webinars over the administration of CBTp via telehealth. 


The first webinar, presented by Dr. Sarah Kopelovich, serves to help practitioners consider critical intervention targets and high-yield motivational, cognitive, and behavioral strategies that are amenable to telephonic encounters, telehealth, or digital accompaniment. The strategies that were selected are appropriate for delivery in any combination of the above-mentioned modalities. Companion clinical tip sheets and self-directed CBT for psychosis learning resources are provided.

The second webinar, presented by Dr. Tania Lecomte, serves to help practitioners consider ways to transition in-person CBTp groups to virtual groups. The webinar addresses how group CBTp is both similar and different via telehealth, discusses potential problems that may arise and how to solve them, and reviews findings from a study by Dr. Lecomte and colleagues exploring the feasibility of administering CBTp groups via telehealth.
