Event description
Evidence-Based Interventions for treating persecutory delusions.

About this Event

Persecutory delusions are a common, distressing and persistent occurrence. Research has shown that people with persecutory delusions experience high levels of worry and sleep difficulties, and these predict the occurrence of paranoid thoughts and increase delusional distress. This workshop covers two evidence-based cognitive behavioural interventions for psychosis, one targeting worry and the other sleep difficulties. Participants will gain an understanding of the theoretical background to these approaches, become familiar with the manualised interventions, and by the end of the workshop be able to confidently use these brief interventions with their own clients.

Delivered by Dr. Louise Isham

She works part time for the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (OCTC) where she is the course lead for the PGCert in Enhanced CBT (Psychosis and Bipolar) and provides specialist supervision and training in CBTp.
