Ron Unger, LCSW, is a therapist specializing in cognitive therapy for psychosis, who works with both individuals and groups. After studying a variety of psychological approaches to psychosis over several decades, he decided on cognitive therapy due to its revolutionary yet down-to-earth and well-researched approach. Mr. Unger has been a pioneer in bringing cognitive therapy for psychosis into Oregon and has given numerous presentations and workshops about this type of therapy. He has also presented on other psychosocial approaches to psychosis and on the psychological impact of trauma, including the frequent relationship between trauma and psychosis. Mr. Unger’s presentations emphasize simple, practical, and humanistic ways of understanding and relating to human difficulties that can too easily be perceived as being "beyond understanding."
