Converging data indicate that, contrary to early pessimism, recovery from serious mental illness (SMI) is often possible. Psychologists are uniquely positioned to provide or oversee use of many evidence-based psychosocial interventions, which are often integral to SMI recovery. This introductory workshop presents a user-friendly update on several evidence-based treatments that psychologists can use to help people with SMI recover and live successfully. The workshop is aimed at psychologists in private practice, community agencies, hospitals and graduate programs.
