From pioneering treatment developers, this book describes recovery-oriented cognitive therapy (CT-R). This evidence-based approach empowers people given a serious mental health diagnosis such as schizophrenia to build a better life in their chosen community. CT-R provides innovative strategies to help individuals shift from a "patient" mode to an adaptive mode of living and take positive steps to pursue valued aspirations. Vivid case vignettes and sample dialogues illustrate ways to access the adaptive mode with people experiencing negative symptoms, delusions, hallucinations, communication difficulties, self-harming or aggressive behavior, and other challenges. In a convenient large-size format, the book includes reproducible handouts and forms. Purchasers get access to a companion website where they can download and print the reproducible materials, plus two online-only tip sheets relevant to COVID-19 and telehealth, and find a link to related videos.
