If you are new to this site, Questions and Answers about Recovery can be a good place to start!

Upcoming Seminars

Two seminars are currently available as an “online course” which consists of prerecorded videos and other materials that you watch whenever you want, with lifetime access.  You can also write questions which will be answered usually within a day or two.

The first one is “CBT for Psychosis; An Individualized, Recovery Oriented Approach.”  It offers 5 CE credits for US professionals.

The second one is “Working with Trauma, Dissociation, and Psychosis: CBT and Other Approaches to Understanding and Recovery.”  This course comes with 6 CE credits for US professionals.

If you prefer something live and in person, I will also teach the seminar on CBT for Psychosis in Portland OR on Friday 5/27/16.  Use this link to find more information about that, and to register.

A list of 4 seminars that I can provide is available here, with a detailed description of each.  I can travel to your location to provide one or more of these seminars, assuming my travel costs can be covered and I can earn a modest fee!  If you are interested and/or if you have questions, please contact me at 4ronunger at, or at 541-513-1811.

People seeking to become competent in psychological approaches to psychosis often find it helpful to consult with someone experience in that area.  I am available to provide such consultation:  if interested, you can download this document for more details, and/or contact me at 4ronunger at

On another note, I would like to publicize the availability of other opportunities to learn more about cognitive therapy for psychosis.

The Felton Institute is planning some training initiatives in CBT for Psychosis in California, please check with them for their latest offerings.

Training in CBT for psychosis is also available on the east coast.  One option is the Institute of Cognitive Therapy for Psychosis (ICTP).  Go to their website for more information.   A second option is the Beck Institute, see  You could also consider Cognitive and Behavioral Consultants which offers a 3 day CBT for Psychosis training, plus ongoing consultation, November, 3rd- November, 5th 2016.
