A meta-analysis of cognitive remediation in schizophrenia.
Cognitive remediation produces moderate improvements in cognitive performance and, when combined with psychiatric rehabilitation, also improves functional outcomes. Expand
Trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder in severe mental illness.
PTSD was predicted most strongly by the number of different types of trauma, followed by childhood sexual abuse, and is suggested to be a common comorbid disorder in severe mental illness that is frequently overlooked in mental health settings. Expand
Randomized trial of cognitive-behavioral therapy for chronic posttraumatic stress disorder in adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
CBT participants were significantly more likely than PCT participants to no longer meet criteria for a PTSD diagnosis at follow-up assessments, and both CBT and PCT were associated with sustained symptom reduction in this sample. Expand
Models of community care for severe mental illness: a review of research on case management.
The findings in terms of the need for specialization of ACT or ICM teams to address social and vocational functioning and substance abuse are discussed, including evaluating implementation fidelity, exploring patient predictors of improvement, and evaluating the role of the helping alliance in mediating outcome. Expand
Implementing evidence-based practices in routine mental health service settings.
The authors discuss common concerns about the use of evidence-based practices, such as whether ethical values have a role in shaping such practices and how to deal with clinical situations for which no scientific evidence exists. Expand
The Illness Management and Recovery program: rationale, development, and preliminary findings.
Pilot data from the United States and Australia are presented on the effects of individual-based and group-based treatment over the 9-month program and over a 3-month follow-up and support the feasibility and promise of the IMR program. Expand
Empirically supported couple and family interventions for marital distress and adult mental health problems.
This article evaluates the efficacy, effectiveness, and clinical significance of empirically supported couple and family interventions for treating marital distress and individual adult disorders,Expand
Trauma, PTSD, and the course of severe mental illness: an interactive model
This work proposes a model, which is an extension of the stress-vulnerability model, in which PTSD is hypothesized to mediate the negative effects of trauma on the course of SMI, and discusses the evidence supporting this model, and considers several intervening variables that are hypothesized to moderate the proposed relationships between PTSD and SMI. Expand
Dual diagnosis: a review of etiological theories.
Evidence suggests that antisocial personality disorder accounts for some increased comorbidity, and there is minimal support for the self-medication model, but the accumulation of multiple risk factors related to mental illness, including dysphoria, may increase the risk of substance use disorder.
