Title: Psychosis prediction 2.0: a "high risk systems" approach to psychosis prediction.
There has been extensive research over the past 25 years on psychosis prediction and prevention. Prediction research to date has largely focused on symptomatic risk for psychosis, based on the presence of subclinical psychotic symptoms or full-threshold but brief psychotic symptoms, called the Clinical High Risk (CHR) approach. A major challenge for the field is that recent evidence suggests this approach identifies only a very small proportion of the total number of individuals at risk of psychosis in the population. Additional approaches to identifying individuals at risk of psychosis are sorely needed. This talk will look at new and alternative approaches to predicting psychosis, based on risk being captured within specific clinical and social systems in childhood, with a particular focus on the risk captured within Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
