Conversations about Psychosis: Finding Meaning and a Path to Recovery with Ron Unger, LCSW
When people hear distressing voices or become lost in an altered sense of reality, it’s easy to feel helpless, especially if drugs don’t work very well or don’t feel acceptable. But new, practical methods are emerging that help people to make sense of these experiences, and to regain control of their lives.
Ron Unger LCSW will introduce some of these approaches, drawing from his work as a therapist specializing in CBT for Psychosis and as a facilitator of Hearing Voices groups.
(Mr. Unger is a licensed clinical social worker and therapist who works with people diagnosed with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, using a respectful and skill building approach called cognitive therapy for psychosis.
