Abstract

Written specifically with sufferers and carers in mind, to help them understand and apply the basic concepts of cognitive therapy for psychosis. • Illustrates what it is like to have common psychosis and how people's lives can be restored using therapy. • Increases understanding of how the psychosis started, and the factors that worsen symptoms or increase the likelihood of relapse. • Helps the sufferer learn how to control symptoms and delay or prevent relapse. • Includes features and exercises to help sufferers explore their own beliefs and feelings to reflect on the way they cope. • Helps carers know what to say and what to do. • Provides a resource for mental health professionals working with patients, to introduce the approach, support ongoing therapy and make the most efficient use of appointment time.
