Staying Well After Psychosis presents an individually based psychological intervention targeting emotional recovery and relapse prevention. This approach considers the cognitive, interpersonal and developmental aspects involved in recovery and vulnerability to the recurrence of psychosis.

* Taking a developmental perspective on help seeking and affect regulation.
* Supporting self-reorganisation and adaptation after acute psychosis.
* Understanding and treating traumatic reactions to psychosis.
* Working with humiliation, entrapment, loss and fear of recurrence appraisals during recovery.
* Working with cognitive interpersonal schemata.
