Presentation Type: Mini Workshop
Level of Familiarity: Basic

This interactive session will illustrate procedures expressly designed to transform inpatient and community-based psychiatric care (residential, team-based, individual) in order to promote recovery for the most challenging individuals. Presenters will initially discuss the basic psychological formulation based on modes -- adaptive vs. regressive -- to promote understanding of how to develop and foster successful and sustained progress. Using this understanding as a basis, the workshop leaders will demonstrate techniques and policies to energize patient care and the treatment milieu, while overcoming iatrogenic factors endemic to psychiatric treatment.The active therapeutic approach helps individuals who face considerable challenges -- low energy, disorganization, grandiose beliefs, auditory hallucinations, aggressive behavior, self-injury -- change into empowered people who have much to offer, feel valued, and participate in the community. Basic science supporting the therapeutic model will be presented, as well as results of a clinical trial, illustrating how the treatment succeeds for the most chronic cases, and showing that specific cognitive mechanisms of change predict outcome. The workshop will include case examples, role-plays, and videos and be relevant to hospital and community service providers.
