Dr Georgie Paulik-White has run over 60 workshops to tertiary and mental health services in the fields of psychosis, voice hearing, trauma, and related therapies. While Perth Voices Clinic runs or hosts workshops sporadically (which will be advertised on this page), Georgie can be contacted to run workshop(s) tailored to the needs of your service and staff, and she can travel interstate to deliver these workshops if needed. Georgie has trained both new teams (included early psychosis and Ultra-High Risk services), and provided advanced training for more established and experienced teams. All workshops include videos, case illustrations, demonstrations and role plays to help develop and fine tune clinical skills. The content of the workshops could include (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for psychosis / voices
  • Mindfulness (or MBCT) for psychosis / voices
  • Imagery Rescripting for trauma in people with voices / psychosis
  • Relating Therapy for voices
  • Working with families
  • Understanding and assessing psychosis / voices
  • How to deliver psychoeducation
  • Addressing the impact of stigma
  • The Diathesis Stress Model
  • Barriers to engagement
  • Managing and assessing risk
  • Trauma and psychosis / voices
  • How to assess and treat trauma safely and effectively in psychosis

 

Georgie’s biography:

I regard myself as a research-practitioner. I am passionate about working in psychosis, and more specifically, with people who voice hearers. I believe that research must guide my clinical decisions in therapy, and likewise the experiences my clients teach me about help to inform the direction of my research. I completed my PhD in voice hearing from the University of Western Australia in 2007 and have produced 22 peer reviewed publications (and an Elsevier textbook on psychosis in press) in the field of voice hearing and psychosis. I have worked in UHR and early psychosis, in both Sydney and Perth, and was the team leader of the early psychosis team in PaRK (2011-2013). I opened Perth Voices Clinic (which I am the Clinical Director of) in 2016 at Murdoch University and Midland Headspace. I helped lead the development of a novel intervention for voice hearers named Cognitive Behaviour Relating Therapy alongside my colleagues in the UK (including Dr Mark Hayward, Sussex University). I am also interested on the role of trauma in voice hearing and the impact of psychological interventions for trauma on voice hearing, and have been conducting a trial of a trauma intervention called Imagery Rescripting together with Prof Arnoud Arntz (Netherlands) and Prof Craig Steel (UK). I regularly run workshops on a range of topics relating to psychosis, voice hearing, trauma, and associated therapies. This training is tailored to the needs of the mental health service or university.
