Harm Risk in Early Psychosis: Psychotherapy Strategies and Case Discussion

This presentation will provide a brief overview of how harm risk (suicidality and self-injury) can present in young people experiencing early psychosis. We will then review a selection of psychotherapy strategies that can be helpful in targeting these concerns, highlighting functional analysis, distress tolerance skills, and the CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality). We will discuss these strategies in the context of disguised client examples, and encourage suggestions and case consultation from the audience.

Presenter: Michelle L. West, PhD, Director, Program for Early Assessment, Care, & Study (PEACS), Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Colorado – School of Medicine (CUSOM). Dr. West is a clinical psychologist who specializes in assessment, treatment, and research for young people showing possible early risk for psychotic spectrum illnesses.
