COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY INFORMED CARE FOR PSYCHOSIS WORKSHOP FOR FAMILY MEMBERS AND OTHER CAREGIVERS
November 6, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm$75
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
On November 6, 2020, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., NAMI Marin will present a workshop on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Informed Care for Psychosis for Family Members. The program will be presented by world-renowned Dr. Douglas Turkington from Great Britain, who is one of the foremost experts in the world. Last year, he conducted a workshop in Marin that received off-the-charts stellar reviews, with the most common comments being that participants wanted even more on the topic!
This time, the workshop will be conducted virtually given the shelter-in-place regulations. It will be interactive and conducted in five one-hour modules to address the following topics:
1. Befriending/communication with loved ones with mental illness
2. Techniques with individuals who have reduced insight into their illness
3. Working with delusions and voices
4. Negative symptoms
5. Effective coping for families and other caregivers
Space is limited so please sign up soon if you are interested. You do not need to have participated in his earlier program nor will it be repetitive of what went before. In short, everyone is welcome whether or not you previously attended Doug’s conference.
This program will be recorded and will be available after November 6 on our website. However, if you participate on November 6, you will be able to interact with Dr. Turkington. There will be dedicated question-and-answer sessions where you can communicate live directly with Dr. Turkington. This will include a chat board for questions and break-out sessions that will also be experiential and interactive. By contrast, the recorded version will not have any opportunity for communicating with Dr. Turkington. We hope you will join us on November 6 for the interactive session. The fee for your participation for the interactive session on November 6 is $75. For those for whom this poses a financial hardship, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for special accommodations.
Finally, don’t be deterred by the technology. If you are not familiar with the platform we end up using, we will have helpers available to walk you through the process!
We hope you will join. Please register soon to reserve your place since attendance is limited.
