Background: Person-Based Cognitive Therapy (PBCT) is an approach to distressing psychosis that seeks to integrate cognitive therapy with mindfulness principles and practice. The workshop will describe how mindfulness and cognitive therapy are formulated within PBCT, and explore how mindfulness principles inform the therapeutic relationship. Using an experiential exercise and client DVD, we will examine how to adapt mindfulness practice for people with distressing psychosis and explore how mindfulness practice needs to support new learning, or insight.
