This webinar will provide an overview of symptoms of psychosis, discuss the interplay between psychosis and substance use, and provide intervention options for providers working with this complex presentation. These interventions, rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), provide additional options for treatment beyond traditional medication treatment approaches.


Suzy Langevin, LICSW, LADC I, Director of Training and Professional Development at Open Sky Community Services, has presented regionally and nationally on the implementation of evidence-based treatment modalities. She has extensive training and fidelity coding experience in motivational interviewing and is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). Langevin also serves on a number of substance use-related community groups. She is dually licensed as an independent clinical social worker and substance use counselor. In addition to her work at Open Sky, Langevin has experience in juvenile justice, foster care, emergency mental health, and inpatient psychiatry. She holds a Master’s degree in social work from Boston College.

Stefanie Gregware, MA, LMHC, is the Vice President of Clinical Services at Open Sky Community Services. She oversees clinical services for the agency, including fidelity, outcome measurement, training, supervision, and development of evidence-based practices. Gregware received her Master’s degree from Assumption College with a concentration in cognitive behavioral therapy. She received advanced training & consultation in recovery-oriented cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for schizophrenia through the University of Pennsylvania, co-facilitating a 2-day course on the model in collaboration with Aaron Brinen, PhD, of the Beck Institute. Gregware has more than a decade of experience providing CBT based treatments, including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), CBT for symptoms of psychosis, cognitive restructuring for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and CBT for anxiety and depression.
