Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis
The BeST Center offers expert training, consultation and other assistance in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis (CBT-p), a person-centered, recovery-oriented, collaborative, structured and evidence-based approach for addressing psychotic illness symptoms and promoting mental health.
We believe CBT-p can help people with psychosis to live recovery: full, meaningful and satisfying lives. Recovery, as defined by SAMHSA and multiple other stakeholders, is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.
What we do
Train providers and agencies in recovery-oriented care with skills informed by CBT-p so that they can:
- Work effectively with individuals who experience psychosis to help them improve their lives; and
- Develop a community/learning collaborative of CBT-p providers with methods for continuous learning, practice, feedback and support as well as
- Help agencies to implement organizational supports that ensure clients have access to evidence-based services and that support mental health providers’ ability to apply these interventions to fidelity.
BeST Center CBT-p Training & Consultation
The BeST Center offers training and consultation in CBT-p interventions that individual practitioners and teams, such as first episode psychosis and Assertive Community Treatment teams, can incorporate into clinical care. Both front-line personnel and therapists can be trained in strategies informed by CBT-p to help individuals address persistent psychotic symptoms.
