5 hours CPD
Voices, visions and unusual beliefs represent some of the core features of psychosis. What is happening to someone in these states of mind and what can be done to help? This one day workshop for counsellors and psychotherapists aims to demystify psychosis, throw light on how and why psychosis may develop and how counsellors and psychotherapists might be able to help.
By the end of this workshop you will be better able to: define psychosis and identify the range of clinical diagnoses that may involve these types of experience; describe a range of explanatory models of psychosis including medical, psychological and cultural understandings; identify the treatment pathways and NICE recommended psychological interventions for psychosis; identify key practice issues for counsellors, psychotherapists and others in the helping role.
