Evidence-Based Practices Within PACT

In October 2016, Dr. Sarah Kopelovich led a Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) Training in Seattle, Washington. Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy is a form of Cognitive Therapy created by Aaron T. Beck, MD that is indicated for clients experiencing persistent schizophrenia with motivational and cognitive deficits. CT-R relies heavily on the use of strategic engagement, goal setting, and activity scheduling as the primary tools for the advancement of recovery. CT-R was first piloted in state hospitals and PACT teams in Pennsylvania.To facilitate cross-training efforts, Dr. Kopelovich developed a CT-R Cross-Training Guide for trainees to use when introducing CT-R to their PACT teams. Learn more about the history of CT-R and how it differs from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis from the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
