This book presents a psychotherapy intervention model called Multimodal Integrative Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (MICST). It is grounded in information processing and cognitive stimulation techniques and operates out of a positive psychology framework. This model, designed for group work with clients with schizophrenia, can be easily tailored to working with clients in individual therapy sessions. The three core MICST group activities include: 1) body movement-mindfulness-relaxation (BMR); 2) cognitive stimulation using group discussions; and 3) cognitive stimulation using paper-pencil cognitive exercises and self-reflection exercises. A chapter is devoted to each of these core areas with actual case vignettes to illustrate ways that these activities can be implemented in clinical practice. Homework recommendations are included at the end of each chapter, devoted to a core MICST group activity and providing suggestions on ways to practice various skills and exercises in between group sessions. Also provided are several handouts and worksheets which can be used with clients.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Mind Stimulation Therapy revitalizes the psychotherapy of psychoses. The authors provide both practical instruction and humane hope for both the novice and expert clinician. A wonderful antidote to therapeutic nihilism and relativism regarding the treatment of psychotic suffering" - Harold J. Bursztajn, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Co-founder, Program in Psychiatry and the Law, BIDMC Psychiatry of Harvard Medical School; President of the American Unit of the UNESCO Bioethics Chair

"This is a new and important method for cognitive and social rehabilitation of individuals with significant mental impairments. The rationale is brilliantly described and the procedures clearly outlined for easy application. I have seen it in action and it works!" - David N. Osser, MD, associate professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
