The study was a single-blind randomized controlled trial (RCT) with two arms, 35 participants receiving cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) plus treatment as usual (TAU), and 42 participants receiving TAU alone. Participants were assessed at baseline and… Expand
Social Recovery Therapy in improving activity and social outcomes in early psychosis: Current evidence and longer term outcomes
TLDR
Evidence of gains in engagement in paid employment outcomes that persisted 15 months beyond the period of active intervention is reported, suggesting social recovery in individuals with early psychosis may be improved. Expand
Social recovery therapy in combination with early intervention services for enhancement of social recovery in patients with first-episode psychosis (SUPEREDEN3): a single-blind, randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The findings show a clinically important benefit of enhanced social recovery on structured activity in patients with first-episode psychosis who received social recovery therapy plus early intervention services. Expand
Improved social functioning following social recovery therapy in first episode psychosis: Do social cognition and neurocognition change following therapy, and do they predict treatment response?
TLDR
It is not clear if SRT impacts on social cognitive or neurocognitive function, however, SRT may be beneficial in those with better social cognition at baseline, as joint models addressing patterns of missingness demonstrate improvement across a number of cognitive outcomes following SRT. Expand

Objectives: Although pharmacotherapy with antipsychotic medication is an effective intervention for early psychosis (EP), drop out from treatment and relapse rates appear still relatively high. InExpand
A pilot investigation of the Graduated Recovery Intervention Program (GRIP) for first episode psychosis
TLDR
Examination of within-group changes and effect sizes suggests an advantage for GRIP over TAU in improving functional outcomes, and the fact that the GRIP intervention demonstrated feasibility and tolerability suggest that this intervention is worthy of further investigation. Expand
Cognitive behavior therapy in early psychosis with a focus on depression and low self-esteem: A randomized controlled trial.

TLDR
CBM-I is acceptable for use with people who are experiencing social anxiety following a psychotic episode, and further research looking at how CBM-I could be made more interactive and producing more applicable scenarios for use in a clinical setting is recommended. Expand
Measuring adherence in social recovery therapy with people with first episode psychosis.
TLDR
An adherence checklist which should be used when delivering SRT in both research and clinical practice is described, outlining the frequency of SRT techniques and proportion of participants who received a full therapy dose. Expand
The effects of a brief CBT intervention, delivered by frontline mental health staff, to promote recovery in people with psychosis and comorbid anxiety or depression (the GOALS study): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
A manualized intervention to support people with psychosis and anxious avoidance or depression to work towards a personal recovery goal and there is potential to develop a cost-effective intervention that could be widely disseminated. Expand

TLDR
Good occupational outcome in patients with a relatively short pre-treatment duration of illness was associated with the prescription of placebo medication during the follow-up period and with more 'neurological soft signs'. Expand
