Psychiatry Grand Rounds 11/12 | Aaron Brinen, PsyD

Brinen Grand Rounds

"Developing Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy: Evidence-Based Journey into Recovery"

November 12 Psychiatry Grand Rounds | Aaron Brinen


Every evidence-based treatment has a start and Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) is no different.  I will discuss my journey from training through co-developing with Aaron T. Beck CT-R for psychosis. CT-R provides an avenue for benefitting individuals with psychosis, those who are least likely to benefit from psychosocial treatment. 


The activity is designed to help the learner:

1.    List three parts of the Recovery Oriented Cognitive Therapy Protocol.
2.    Describe the findings of the Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy clinical trial. 
3.    Explain how beliefs are related to negative symptoms of schizophrenia 

About the Speaker:

Brinen, PsyD, is Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he provides training in recovery-oriented cognitive therapy (CT-R), serves individuals with psychosis, and collaborates on research. Previously, he directed Drexel University's center for the dissemination, development, study, and practice of CT-R. A codeveloper of CT-R, Dr. Brinen worked to formalize the treatment and adapt it for individual and group therapy settings, as well as in team-based psychiatric care and during inpatient treatment. He trains psychiatry residents in CT-R and has been active in training community therapists from around the world.
