Join us for a newly adapted virtual workshop supporting those who care for a family member/friend living with psychosis, offering proven strategies informed by a unique CBT-p model.

What is the workshop like?
This workshop helps those living with or caring for someone with serious mental illness such as psychosis or schizophrenia become a partner in recovery and healing.

The workshop consists of three virtual sessions:
• Tuesday August 18 (6pm-8pm):

Healthier Thinking (3Cs – catch it, check it, change it)

• Thursday August 20 (6pm-8pm):

Healthier Communication (Navigates through stress, anxiety, distress and other psychological symptoms that make it difficult to communicate, including delusions, voices – i.e. psychosis)

Healthier Home Life
(Helps participants learn how to co-create a supportive, accepting environment, encourages participation in activities, promotes/supports recovery)

The workshop also addresses topics such as self-care, resources and coping strategies to be a partner in their loved one’s recovery journey and improve their quality of life.

Family, friends & caregivers of those living with psychosis.
Why CBT-p?
CBT-p is goal-based and focuses on problem solving – issues that surface in day to day home life. It is a focused, short-term approach to help those with psychosis make sense of what is happening within and around them, and to evaluate and respond to what is going on.
Caregivers learn effective CBT-p informed strategies to become a recovery partner to their family member or loved one living with psychosis. Additional learnings include self-care tips, resources & coping strategies for added resilience and an improved relationship with their loved one.


Space is limited. Early bird pricing of $250 ends July 27, 2020.
