Dr. Michael Garrett will describe an approach to psychotherapy for psychosis that integrates cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT) with a psychodynamic approach. In this way of working, CBT is viewed as a superior method to help patients examine the literal falsity of delusional beliefs while psychodynamic technique is a superior method to help patients explore the figurative (metaphorical) truth of psychotic symptoms. Dr. Garrett will describe 10 psychological resistances to the use of logic which limit the efficacy of psychotherapy with persons suffering from psychosis.
