Abstract:Individuals with Serious mental illness require psychosocial treatments as adjunct to pharmacotherapy to promote recovery. An ACT team was trained in CBT interventions and charts were reviewed to identify sessions where CBT was utilized. Subjects who received at least 3 sessions of CBT went from 10% before training to 44% after training and 54% in the follow up period. All team members including bachelor’s level staff provided CBT interventions. Results show that ACT Team members including those at bachelor’s level can be trained in CBT and they utilize these interventions after training is completed.
