Synopsis

​Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) is a treatment model used in child and adolescent settings. Clinical leaders believe that CPS can also be applied to the adult patient population at OSH. The purpose of this project is to determine if the approach can benefit the recovery of adult mental health patients, and help in the training and management of staff.

Synopsis

Many Oregon State Hospital patients experience auditory hallucinations that create distress and can hinder their ability to fully engage in treatment. This proposed study builds on the latest empirical evidence for the use of mindfulness-based treatment to decrease the distressing experience of auditory hallucinations associated with mental illness. Mindfulness-based treatments have shown an increase in positive clinical outcomes and a decrease in re-hospitalization rates for individuals experiencing auditory hallucinations.
