This course is for people who have experienced psychosis, their family, friends, supporters and other mental health workers.
We understand the term “psychosis” as describing experiences outside of shared reality, most often voices and visions and awareness of other unusual occurrences and hallucinations that may be distressing to the person. In this 4-week course, we will explore some psychological ideas for making sense of these kinds of hallucinations and unusual experiences and look at strategies that have been found to support recovery, or living well with psychosis. We aim to inspire hope through sharing personal experience of recovery from psychosis, support exploration of different ways of understanding and coping with psychosis through group discussion, and teach some practical coping strategies, which we will ask people to try out as homework.
This 4-week course will meet Thursdays on: 27th June, 4th, 11th, 18th July
