Psychosocial Interventions for Early-Course Psychosis
Emily Kline, PhD
Most individuals with primary psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia suffer from a chronic, relapsing-remitting course of illness, with poor rates of employment, high loneliness, and reduced life expectancy. Early intervention in the course of psychotic disorders represents a promising strategy for improving the life-long wellbeing for individuals with psychosis. Beyond optimizing and improving medication delivery, what should early intervention involve? Dr. Kline will present early intervention strategies such as public health information campaigns, diagnosis of a “prodromal” state, CBT for psychosis, and coordinated specialized care.
