Abstract:

Pychoeducation is a useful and required intervention in subjects with elevated-risk state of psychosis. Psychoeducation is, however, an under-investigated area in the field of early identification and prevention. Psychoeducation with this particular patient group needs to adapt to several unique features, e.g. the diagnostic uncertainty (“say it only in subjunctive”) and problems of stigmatization. More research regarding the subjective psychoeducational needs of individuals at elevated risk for psychosis as well as more explicit provision and evaluation of psychoeducation in the elevated-risk state is strongly desirable.

Keywords: Psychoeducation, psychotherapy, schizophrenia, ultra-high risk, stigmatization, clinical stability, social interaction, quality of life, symptoms, pilot data
