These workshops, accredited by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage and Family Therapist Board, will present new insights and innovative techniques for working with people experiencing psychosis and in post-psychosis. The workshops will be presented by Milt Greek, M.A., a person with schizophrenia who has volunteered extensively with people in psychosis and post-psychosis and received excellent reviews from his years of presenting on schizophrenia and recovery. Comments on Milt’s material include:  

“Milton Greek’s CIT presentation is one of the best I’ve seen. His talk, ‘Basics of Psychotic Thinking and Feeling’, mesmerized the audience.” – Fred Frese, Ph.D., Assoc. Professor of Psychiatry, Northeast Ohio Medical University

"The ‘Working with a Person in Psychosis’ workshop was absolutely amazing." - Lisa Adler-Bacon, MS, PCC-S, LSW

 “Milt has developed new and profound insights into the basics of schizophrenic thinking and feeling.” – Josie Setzler, retired Executive Director, NAMI – Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties
