2-Day Workshop for Family Caregivers

Register Now »

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps individuals become conscious of their beliefs, and aims to change their patterns of thinking.  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Psychosis (CBT-p) follows the same general approach, with some modifications to address positive symptoms, cognitive deficits, and stigma associated with psychosis.  Through role playing demonstrations and direct coaching, this two-day Informed CBT Training for Caregivers will cover effective ways to use CBT to support loved ones living with Schizophrenia and Psychosis and may also be beneficial for those supporting individuals with Bipolar and Anxiety Disorders. 

What You Will Learn: 
This 2-day workshop will offer Caregivers practical tools and strategies to reduce their feelings of anxiety and depression, and to build a greater resiliency.  Caregivers will learn about key caring principles, how to normalize their loved one’s symptoms, different styles of coping and how to spot Red Flags in your loved one’s behaviour that might indicate the illness is getting worse.
