CBT, One step further.... CBTp

Hello fellow students,

I have attached an article for you to compliment the content learned within PSYC 406.

My childhood best friend was diagnosed with schizophrenia when she was in her early 20's.  Her experience with mental health supports and services is a part of the reason why I am choosing to further my education and pursue a degree in psychology.  As I progressed through PSYC 406, I kept an ear open to orientations, theories, techniques, etc. that may be of benefit to my friend's ongoing therapy (as I have throughout all the PSYC courses). 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is great.  Two thumbs up from this student!  It's efficacy and results are impressive and it was a very interesting unit to study.  At the end of the unit, I wondered if CBT had been applied to individuals who experience psychosis- delusions, auditory hallucinations, etc.  Well, a quick venture into the AU Library resulted in the return of many studies on just that topic.

I offer my fellow students CBT for Psychosis (CBTp).  If you found CBT interesting, I sincerely believe you will find CBTp interesting as well.  This article was selected for sharing as it is a meta analysis of the effects of CBTp on delusions and I feel it compliments our learnings.  

I hope you enjoy it.
