Case Conceptualization for First Episode Psychosis Series 3: Session 1: Compassion Focused Therapy

The purpose of the series is to introduce FEP therapists, skills trainers, and team leaders to three different case conceptualization approaches. The series will include both didactic and experiential components. Attendees will also have the opportunity to join additional case conceptualization approaches, such as integrating trauma and culture into conceptualization in future months
