Cognitive Therapy for Psychosis and Associated Trauma with Ron Unger, MSW Fri and Sat January 8 and 9, 8:30 am-4 pm This two-part series focuses on cognitive therapy for psychosis and associated trauma as an evidence-based approach that can help people reduce problems associated with experiences such as delusions, voices, and paranoia. Learn how to work collaboratively with clients with psychosis, "explore the evidence," rather than impose beliefs, and use strategies that are often surprisingly similar to cognitive methods for reducing depression and anxiety. Develop options for clients so they are no longer forced to rely entirely on the often limited effectiveness of medications for symptom reduction.  Register for one or both days. Introduction to Collaborative Problem Solving with Ed Keating, MSW and Shawn Crombie, MD  Fr Jan 22, 8:30 am-4 pm Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) is an evidence based best practice, which has been utilized and researched in a variety of settings including out-patient, residential, hospital and juvenile detention environments.  The CPS approach helps families often driven by crisis work proactively, by identifying and intervening in problematic behavior before it occurs. This proactive perspective toward problem solving can result in a reduction in the utilization of crisis intervention services. The implementation of CPS has resulted in drastic reductions in seclusions, restraints, and staff injuries as well as an increase in staff safety and morale.
