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: details at this link.
On another note, I would like to publicize the availability of other opportunities to learn more about cognitive therapy for psychosis.
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 http://www.dialogicpractice.net/
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 http://madinamericacontinuinged.org/
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!
