“Effective Treatment for Psychosis: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis (CBTp) for Peers and Families”

Please join Dr. Kate Hardy and Dr. Douglas L. Noordsy for an overview of Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy for psychosis (CBTp) including the core components of the
approach and practice.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis (CBTp) is an evidence-based therapy that aims to reduce distress associated with psychotic symptoms and improve
functioning. More recently CBTp has also been used to help family members learn key skills and tools to support their own mental health and support their loved ones.

Professor Hardy will introduce key skills that family members or caregivers can learn and apply. Professor Noordsy will describe how psychiatrists can use CBTp techniques to understand and communicate about symptoms, reinforce coping skills and frame the role of medication treatment. The evening will conclude with a summary of new exciting innovations being developed at Stanford University, such as avatar therapy! A Q&A will follow the talk, so bring your concerns and questions.
