We will review interview questions to help ascertain psychotic symptoms, communication strategies when working with individuals with suspected psychosis, psychological assessments that are useful in creating an integrative report/diagnosis of severe mental illness, and treatment recommendations specific to fostering recovery for individuals experiencing psychosis.
