What is this training about?

This training is about Psychosis Recovery by Enabling Adult Carers at Home (p-REACH) is a free online training that offers concrete, evidence-based skills for relatives and friends of individuals with psychosis to better care for and relate to their loved ones. It takes a proven psychotherapy for people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and modifies it to the needs of caregivers.

This virtual training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) will teach caregivers to:

  • Use evidence-based coping strategies
  • Develop key caring principles
  • Communicate effectively with your loved one
  • Make sense of medications and treatment
  • Implement relapse prevention strategies

Do you struggle to talk with your loved one?  Do you want coping strategies for yourself?

This training is intended for caregivers, family members, or friends who are caring for someone with psychosis. If you struggle to communicate with your loved one or would benefit from coping strategies for yourself, this training is designed for you.

The p-REACH online is fully online and virtual. The first part consists of a series of self-paced modules, which is followed by a 3-hour live webinar. The on demand modules are designed to be completed before the live webinar. The live webinar is facilitated by the co-developers of Psychosis REACH. The live webinar will take place on November 2, 2023 from 12:00-3:00 EST. Spots are limited, and registration is required. For more information and background, visit UW Spirit Lab.
