Understanding and Treating Psychotic Disorders

This powerful, yet down-to-earth workshop shows you how to stop severely distressed people rebounding hopelessly from one mental health service to another and how to help them recover meaningful lives — often remarkably quickly.


This powerful, yet down-to-earth workshop shows you how to stop severely distressed people rebounding hopelessly from one mental health service to another and how to help them recover meaningful lives — often remarkably quickly.

Tutor Iain Caldwell and his team at Hartlepool Mind routinely and cost-effectively produce dramatic turnarounds in the lives of many hundreds of complex, severely mentally ill cases every year. So successful is their approach with people suffering from psychotic disorders, dissociated states (including PTSD), self-harming, mood swings, OCD, anger disorders, addiction, poor social skills and co-morbidity (a mix of any of the above), that they are now receiving more referrals than all the local statutory and voluntary services put together.

Now you can find out how they do it.
What you gain from the day:

* New insights into the causes and symptoms of psychosis
* Effective ways to work and connect with psychotic patients and help them take back control of their lives
* A strong and practical alternative to the tyranny of the medical model
* New thinking about support networks, and how to get clients to commit to one
* A straightforward way to design a realistic recovery plan
* Ways to use metaphors which clients can relate to
* Case studies which show how much more can be done to help people than is often thought
* A clear vision of how mental health treatment could be dramatically improved nationwide.

Who should attend:

* Any member of the caring professions involved in helping distressed people with severe mental health problems – GPs, psychotherapists, psychiatric nurses, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, health visitors, social and support workers.
* Anyone wanting to hear about the latest insights into psychotic behaviour, whether for professional or personal reasons, and practical strategies for some of the most complex mental health problems.
* Individuals in the NHS and social services with managerial responsibility for creating humane mental health services.
