Treating Psychosis : A Clinician's Guide to Integrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness Approaches within the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Tradition Paperback / softback

Description

Hallucinations, delusions, catatonia, and thought disorder: the symptoms of psychosis are extreme.

Patients with psychosis may experience a complete break from reality, become violent toward themselves or others, and may even believe that they are being persecuted by unseen forces. Because these symptoms can pose a number of dangers to the patient and those around them, successfully treating psychosis can be enormously challenging. Treating Psychosis is an evidence-based treatment manual for mental health professionals working with individuals who experience psychosis, a serious form of mental illness associated with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and severe depression.

If you are a clinician dealing with psychotic patients, you know how devastating psychosis can be for both the patient and their family.

That's why this book offers a compassionate approach that integrates empowerment and strengths-oriented methods. Using a cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) approach that incorporates acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and compassion-focused therapy (CFT), the book will provide you with a pre-treatment overview and treatment implementation strategies, and will help you develop a realistic action plan for treating patients with psychosis in individual or group settings.
