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.

I’ll be teaching “CBT for Psychosis” in Portland OR on 1/19/18, followed by “Working with Trauma, Dissociation, and Psychosis” on 1/20/18.

On 1/26/18, I’ll be teaching “CBT for Psychosis” in Tacoma WA.

On 3/30/18, I will be teaching “Working with Trauma, Dissociation, and Psychosis” in Shoreline WA up near Seattle.

Finally, on 4/27/18, I’ll be teaching “CBT for Psychosis” at JFK University in Berkeley, and on 4/28/18 I’ll be teaching “Working with Trauma, Dissociation, and Psychosis” at the same location.  Check back later on this site, or with JFK University, to get the link for how 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 offers an in depth training in CBT for Psychosis in California, see

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 this link.  NYC CBTp offers some trainings, see this page.

Some of you may be interested in training in the methods used in the Open Dialogue approach: see

There are free continuing education courses available from the Mad in America Continuing Education Project – well most of the courses are free, but there are nominal charges if you want credits.  See

Also, I’ve put together a page with links to a variety on online courses, or collections of online courses, that relate to psychosis and seem worth consideration:  Check them out at this link!
