Published in association with ISPS. Psychosis, an innovative new journal, invites research and commentary papers on: evidence-based treatments including individual, family and group therapies derived from a range of models including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and systemic, and from a range of disciplines including nursing, psychology, social work, psychiatry, occupational therapy, art therapy etc.; descriptions of psychotherapy and first person accounts of psychosis and of experiences using mental health services; the integration of psychological and social understandings and treatment approaches into all phases of recovery; training and knowledge of mental health professionals in psychological and psycho-social interventions in the treatment and prevention of psychosis; conceptual analysis and ethical considerations related to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation issues. Psychosis: Psychological, Social and Integrative Approaches fills an important gap in mental health literature, namely research focused on the psychological treatments of psychosis (e.g. cognitive-behavior therapy, psychodynamic therapy, family therapy etc.) and the psycho-social causes of psychosis (e.g. poverty, drug abuse, child abuse and neglect, distressed families, urban living, discrimination, rape, war combat etc.). The journal publishes papers on both quantitative research (e.g. rigorously designed outcome studies and epidemiological surveys) and qualitative research (e.g. case studies of therapy, first-person accounts of psychosis and experiences of people with psychosis in the mental health system), as well as papers focusing on conceptual and ethical issues.
