Continuity between Stressful Experiences and Delusion Content in Adolescents with Psychotic Disorders – A Pilot Study

Gennaro Catone/ Simone Pisano/ Matthew Broome/ Juliana Fortes Lindau/ Antonio Pascotto/ Antonella Gritti

Delusions are usually considered core symptoms of schizophrenia, but they are in fact associated with a wide range of psychiatric disorders. The content of a delusion is often related to stressful life experiences that preceded the delusion. The aim of this study is to detect whether there is a link—specifically, a thematic link—between past experiences and delusion content that connects the two events via thematic analogy. The sample population evaluated for this study consisted of 16 consecuti(..)

Early-Onset Schizophrenia: Exploring the Contribution of the Thought Disorder Index to Clinical Assessment

Dorte Bundgaard Andersen/ Ditte Lammers Vernal/ Niels Bilenberg/ Mette Skovgaard Væver/ Anne Dorte Stenstrøm

Differentiating diagnostically between schizophrenia and emotional and personality disorders with psychotic or psychotic-like symptoms is a challenging task. It is especially difficult when working with adolescent patients, because their symptoms tend to manifest at lower levels as compared with adult patients. Thought disorder is a core symptom of schizophrenia, and the Rorschach Inkblot Method is widely used for the assessment of formal thought disorder. In this study, which is situated within(..)

The Growing Trend of Prescribing Antipsychotics for Young People in Finland, 2000 to 2010

Kirsi-Maria Haapasalo-Pesu/ Max Karukivi/ Simo Saarijärvi

According to previous reports from many countries (e.g., the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom), the use of antipsychotic drugs has increased among young people. Antipsychotics have also increasingly been prescribed for non-psychotic disorders. The purpose of this study was to estimate the rate at which antipsychotics were prescribed for young people in the age groups of 10 to 14 years, 15 to 19 years, and 20 to 24 years in Finland in the years 2000, 2005, and 2010. This was a nationwid(..)

Collection of developmental history in the evaluation of schizophrenia spectrum disorders

Angela M. Reiersen

Schizophrenia is a heterogeneous disorder that is characterized by varying levels of hallucinations, delusions, negative symptoms, and disorganized features. The presence and severity of neurodevelopmental precursors and premorbid psychopathology also vary among individuals. To fully understand individual patients and to sort out phenotypic heterogeneity for genetic research studies, instruments designed to collect developmental history relevant to schizophrenia may be helpful. The goal was to d(..)
