Abstract A medical therapist’s journey learning to use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Psychosis is described. This experience provided a potential pathway to improved engagement through the provision of optimism, hope and respect for the others’ personhood. However, risks associated with such therapeutic engagement and the capacity of mental health services to support this work need to be considered. The impacts of this training on the clinical practice of the author are described with emphasis on the behaviour and attitudes of the therapist. Training in CBTp was a highly valued experience, and opportunities to complete this should be made routinely available to trainee psychiatrists.
