Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an empirically validated and widely used problem-oriented psychotherapeutic approach that examines the relationships between thoughts, behaviours and emotions. Interventions are generally targeted towards reducing distress through psychoeducation, the modification of cognitions and behavioural experimentation. Over the last twenty years, there have been considerable advances in applying CBT principles to treat severe mental illnesses, such that CBT can be a helpful adjunct to pharmacotherapy in treating these disorders.
In this workshop, we will focus on psychotic and bipolar disorders. We will present a cognitive conceptualization of these disorders, common misconceptions regarding the suitability of these populations for psychotherapy, as well as an overview of the treatment rationale and CBT strategies that are most helpful for these clients. We will also examine some of the outcome literature highlighting the effectiveness of CBT in treating these populations.
