Psychosis implies an alteration of one's reality, with specific beliefs and sensory experiences that affect one's judgment and capacity to function socially. Previously, medication alone was believed to attenuate or eliminate psychotic symptoms; however, more than two decades of empirical evidence now support the use of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for psychosis, including group CBT for psychosis. Group CBT for Psychosis offers the first published group therapy module of its kind and is suitable for a broad range of mental health professionals. Group therapy for people with psychosis is often recommended given its cost-efficiency and indirect benefits such as improved social skills and social support, yet delivery of this group intervention necessitates specialized skills and knowledge not typically included as part of most clinical training programs. This book offers thorough descriptions of relevant techniques, clinical vignettes, and worksheets for use in group sessions. Individual chapters focus on the basics of CBT for psychosis, essential elements of group therapy, explaining the CBT model in a group context, techniques for various symptoms, measuring change, common obstacles to group CBT for psychosis, and much more. Group CBT for Psychosis will be a valuable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, and graduate students in these fields. Professors and supervisors teaching clinical skills, such as how to run groups or how to conduct CBT in groups with people with psychotic disorders, will also find this book very useful.

This integrated framework builds on the strengths of both methods to achieve lasting gains, even for patients with severe, chronic mental illness. The therapist is guided to use CBT to help the patient recognize the literal falsity of delusions, while employing psychodynamic strategies to explore the figurative truth and personal meaning of psychotic symptoms. Extended case presentations and numerous clinical vignettes illustrate Garrett’s compassionate, empowering approach.

Traditionally, people with psychotic symptoms have been treated with anti-psychotic or neuroleptic drugs. While this approach is beneficial to a number of people, there are many for whom it is problematic. Recent recognition of these problems has led to the development of effective complementary treatments of a specifically psychological nature. In Cognitive Behavioural Interventions with Psychotic Disorders leading researchers and practitioners in this area provide a comprehensive overview for all those undergoing related training in psychology and psychiatry, as well as nursing and social work. The book provides a general background to cognitive treatment, and also discusses specific uses of the therapy in treating those who have hallucinations, as well as those with delusions and schizophrenia. The contributors also suggest how cognitive behavioural approaches can be integrated with other strategies such as pharmacological methods, or in the context of the family.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy has been successfully employed in the treatment of such problems as depression, panic disorder and phobias. Providing an approach to patients with the most intractable problems, this book details the practical application of cognitive-behavioural therapy to the pervasive disorder of schizophrenia. The techniques described in this book, drawn from relevant theory and research, are designed to complement other treatments for schizophrenia, including medication, rehabilitation and family therapies.; Making a clear distinction between the diagnosis of schizophrenia and the debilitating label of insanity, the authors contend that people with this disorder are not inherently irrational but instead suffer from a circumscribed set of irrational beliefs. The book presents easily learned techniques that professionals can employ to help patients alleviate the impact of these beliefs, and start drawing upon the strengths and rationality they possess to improve their daily lives.; Illustrated with numerous case examples, this book describes how to: work with the person to construct credible explanations of distressing and disabling symptoms; explore the personal significance of life events and circumstances and their interactions with the person's strengths and vulnerabilities; introduce reality testing for hallucinations and delusions; disentangle thought Disorder And Ameliorate Negative Symptoms; And Demystify Psychotic symptoms for individuals and their families. The book also delineates the relationship of thought, identity, insight and coping strategies to schizophrenia.; This text should be of interest to professionals working with people suffering from schizophrenia - from psychologists, psychiatrists and residential care workers to social workers, occupational therapists and nursing staff - as well as to students in these fields.

The introduction of antipsychotic agents in the 1950’s substantially improved the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. However, clinical and functional outcomes are still far less than optimal for patients, and have not improved in recent years despite the development of several new antipsychotics. Efficacy rates are further compromised by medication non-adherence, which has been reported to affect more than half of patients. In response to these issues, several non-pharmacological interventions have been developed for the treatment of schizophrenia, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive remediation, social cognition training and metacognitive approaches. Although these interventions have produced promising results, there is still much controversy regarding their usefulness and applicability in clinical practice. A major impeding factor for their dissemination is possibly a lack of sufficient evidence regarding their specific indications, mechanisms of action, adverse effects, but also practical issues concerning the interpretability of respective clinical studies, such as the choice of outcome variables and control of confounding factors. The present Research Topic includes original research articles and reviews addressing these issues.

While earlier approaches to these distressing symptoms depended on an overall model of schizophrenia which emphasised fundamental discontinuities with normal thought and psychological processes, the authors' approach is supported by substantial research that indicates that delusions, voices and paranoia lie on a continuum of differences in thought and behaviour, and do not arise from fundamentally different psychological processes.This book offers a practical, research-based and essentially hopeful approach to the assessment and treatment of psychotic disorders and also an argument for the development of a person model for treatment, which is based on the person's enduring psychological vulnerabilities.

There have been exciting new developments in the treatment of schizophrenia and related psychoses in recent decades. Clinical guidelines increasingly recommend that patients be offered evidence-based psychosocial treatments in addition to medications, as such interventions can produce greater improvements and may prevent relapses better compared with medications alone. In parallel with these recent advancements, an evolution in the way cognitive-behavioral therapies are being conceptualized and implemented has occurred due to the incorporation of novel strategies that promote psychological processes such as acceptance and mindfulness. While there are a variety of acceptance/mindfulness approaches being developed to address psychosis, there is not currently a dominant approach. In Incorporating Acceptance and Mindfulness into the Treatment of Psychosis, Brandon Gaudiano brings together the researchers and clinicians working at the cutting edge of acceptance/mindfulness therapies for psychosis to compare and contrast emerging approaches and discuss them within the context of the more traditional cognitive-behavioral interventions. The book includes a section that focuses on six distinct treatment models that incorporate acceptance and mindfulness strategies for psychosis and a section that provides a synthesis and analysis of acceptance/mindfulness approaches to psychosis. It concludes with recommendations for moving the research forward in a constructive and responsible way. This volume will be an important resource for researchers and clinicians interested in gaining a deeper understanding of mindfulness- and acceptance-based approaches and newer psychosocial treatments for severe mental illness.
