Course Overview

As researchers bring new insights to light about schizophrenia and new treatments are developed, the prevailing view today has shifted to that of recovery, defined as a process whereby an individual improves their general wellness and lives life to their fullest potential. This is in stark contrast with the historical view of schizophrenia, which pessimistically described it as a chronic, devastating brain condition, offering little hope to those affected by it. Recovery is instead marked by optimism and hopefulness, rather than emphasizing disability or chronicity of impairment, and is predicated upon access to evidence-based interventions and a range of recovery support services. This course was designed to help licensed behavioral health professionals expand their understanding of the wide array of options to help individuals with schizophrenia recover and lead purposeful, rewarding lives within the community setting. You will learn about the etiology and challenges associated with schizophrenia, as well as evidence-based interventions for supporting recovery. Using a blend of didactic information and detailed case vignettes to reinforce your learning, this training will help you understand and work more effectively with this population.
