An introduction to CBT in psychosis

by Dr Prasanna N de Silva and Victoria Lumley


Last reviewed: December 2019


Cognitive-behavioural therapy in psychosis (CBTp) is gaining an increasing body of evidence. This module describes a number of clinical scenarios where cognitive therapy interventions could be helpful for clinicians.


The module is intended to raise awareness and encourage practitioners who are interested in CBTp to seek appropriate training and clinical supervision. We will provide a theoretical overview of CBTp, review the current evidence base and provide a useful framework for clinicians to use when working with clients.


It is recommended that you should have successfully completed the CPD Online module Introduction to cognitive-behavioural therapy prior to embarking on this module.
