Part 1 Description:

Delineates functions of specific parts of the brain and the resulting cognitive, behavioral, and functional changes that occur when these parts are impaired.  Strategies for understanding, preventing, and responding to behaviors in ways that address the individual and cognition in specific situations will be introduced.  The paradigm shift toward psychological and relational concepts in psychosis work will also be introduced, along with innovative trends in interventions for psychosis.  

Part 1 Goals & Objectives:

  1. Identify brain structures associated with functions that may result in behavioral, functional and cognitive activities that are relevant to difficult behaviors.
  2. Describe at least two specific strategies and principles for interventions that address the cognitive impairment resulting from brain dysfunction.
  3. Describe a minimum of two intervention strategies that reduce difficult behaviors and improve quality of life.
  4. Learn about the research base that suggests full recovery from ‘schizophrenia’ is possible.
  5. Utilize two methods that enhance self-exploration and self-esteem among people with ‘SMI’ diagnosis; ‘normalizing’ symptoms and Voice Dialogue.
  6. Understand that there are non-medical approaches to helping with psychosis, such as Hearing Voices Network and Open Dialogue.
