Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Psychosis (CBTp) is based on the original CBT assertion of, how you think leads to changes in how you feel and what you do. However, CBTp focus adds to this understanding by helping to reduce the distress caused by positive symptoms, including hallucinations and unusual thoughts/delusions. In CBTp training, clinicians learn how to help clients interpret the event that causes distress rather than the event itself, then check the accuracy of the interpretation. CBTp also teaches to investigate how current behaviors may be maintaining the problem, and to check the helpfulness of those behaviors. CBTp also targets: Symptoms of depression and anxiety, Past traumatic events, Social skills, Negative symptoms including lack of motivation, Problem solving and decision making, Developing coping skills and Relapse prevention planning. The research evidence base will also be reviewed during this training.
