Individuals with psychosis can face deficits with their social interactions. Empowering our clients to lead meaningful lives and have valued social roles is an important part of the psychosocial rehabilitation work that we as practitioners do. However, we need to also equip our clients with the skills required in order to have successful social interactions. The implementation of a year long group that utilizes an Integrated Psychological Therapy approach will be discussed including successes, challenges and partnerships. Participants will be guided through simulations of some of the module content to appreciate the nature of the group process and session objectives. A question and answer period will allow for further discussion of concerns related to resource allocation, sustainability and research.
