The South Southwest MHTTC is pleased to host the Case Conceptualization for First Episode Psychosis (FEP) Series. The purpose of the series is to introduce FEP therapists, skills trainers, and team leaders to three different case conceptualization approaches.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to join additional case conceptualization approaches, such as integrating trauma and culture into conceptualization in future months

Learning Objectives:

  • The Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) model and its relevance to experiences in psychosis.
  • Psychoeducation about evolved brains, with their built-in patterns, emotion systems, and multiple selves.
  • How to create internal and external cues of safeness, and cultivate a compassionate self.
  • Techniques to facilitate compassionate relating to self, others, and to voices.

I am a clinical psychologist, researcher, author, and trainer at Balanced Minds, UK ( I have recently spent five years researching the application of CFT for people in NHS services who are experiencing distress in relation to psychosis (as an MRC Research Fellow at King’s College London
and University of Glasgow, 2014-2019). I provide CFT therapy, supervision, consultation, and training. I have run over a hundred various compassion training workshops both nationally and internationally, and have co-authored (with Eleanor Longden) a new self-help book for voice-hearers.
