iATTp Recruitment open: Investigation of Attention Training Technique for people who experience psychosis

iATTp Recruitment, According to previous research, people who have experiences that can be described as psychosis, such as hearing voices or having beliefs that others do not seem to share, may have unhelpful patterns of thinking that pull at their attention. People can get locked into this self-focused attention which may reinforce and maintain these experiences.   Attention Training Technique has emerged in the literature as an intervention that can be effective in treating difficulties such as generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Supporting people with early psychosis to improve their health and fitness can help avoid future poor health. Quitting smoking is one of the best ways to do this:   Helps people become fitter and avoid future physical...

HOAX Using Artwork & Media To Tackle Stigma In Mental Health

What do you think about Psychosis and what does it mean to you? For years the general public has been fed a negative view of psychosis and other mental health difficulties. This is usually thanks to language and imagery conjured by the media, be it advertising, articles or TV. These societal misrepresentations result in individuals who experience mental health difficulties being stereotyped and often discriminated against.   But when it’s you, a loved one or a friend who starts to experience psychosis; what happens then? It’s well known that the stigma surrounding mental health can pose barriers to recovery; such as individuals feeling less likely to seek help for a difficulty, an absence of hope or reduce beliefs that recovery is possible.   The HOAX Our Right to Hope...
