This chapter describes the third section of the workbook, which focuses on the emotional and behavioral manifestations of distress, as well as on self-esteem, and further develops the concept of coping strategies. Distress, specifically substance misuse and suicidal thoughts, is not specific to individuals with psychosis but is prevalent in this population. CBTp therapists will focus on distress but will also focus on strengths and goals, which means the therapy will target not only psychotic symptoms but also other distressing emotions and behaviors. Similarly, the therapy should focus on the person’s strengths, capacities, and goals that go beyond distress reduction. The chapter takes each session of the third section of the workbook and explains in detail the purpose of each activity, how to conduct it, and gives clinical examples to illustrate participants’ reactions to these sessions.
