Background There is a long history of research into the attributes of carers of people with psychosis, but few interventions target their distress or their difficulties. Aims To describe an empirically based model of the relationships of those caring for people with psychosis to inform clinical and theoretical advances. Method We developed a model of informal carer relationships in psychosis, based on an integration of the literature elaborating the concept of expressed emotion. The model… Expand
Can Caregiving Experiences be Understood Using an Attachment Framework in Early Psychosis
This thesis is presented in three parts with an overall focus on caregiving relationships and responses in early psychosis. Part one presents a systematic review of the literature examining theExpand
The Role of Metacognitions in Expressed Emotion and Distress: A Study on Caregivers of Persons with First-Episode Psychosis.
TLDR
The metacognitive framework for caregiver distress in first-episode psychosis may help develop new therapeutic interventions to better support families and is proposed in the first attempt to address caregiver concerns from the perspective of contextual cognitive behavioural therapy. Expand
Coping strategies in carers of young people with a first episode of psychosis
TLDR
Avoidance coping strategies are related to psychological distress, emotional over-involvement, and increased carer burden and interventions facilitating the use of adaptive problem solving and positive re-appraisal will promote carer coping and reduce psychological distress. Expand
A randomized controlled trial of a correspondence-based intervention for carers of relatives with psychosis.
BACKGROUND Family members play a crucial role in supporting the recovery of loved ones with psychosis. The journey of recovery is not only traversed by the person experiencing the mental illness butExpand
Understanding the experience of "burnout" in first-episode psychosis carers.
TLDR
The results underscore the importance of developing targeted interventions during the early phase, which are designed to reduce the development and entrenchment of burnout responses in carers, but to also mitigate its negative sequelae. Expand
Informal Caregiving Relationships in Psychosis: Reviewing the Impact of Patient Violence on Caregivers
A modest association can be found between people with a schizophrenia spectrum diagnosis (psychosis) and perpetrating acts of violence. When a person with psychosis does engage in violence, it isExpand
Delusional belief flexibility and informal caregiving relationships in psychosis: a potential cognitive route for the protective effect of social support
TLDR
This is the first evidence that having supportive caregiving relationships is associated with a specific cognitive attribute in people with psychosis, suggesting a potential cognitive mechanism by which outcomes following CBTp, and perhaps more generally, are improved by social support. Expand
Families of people with experience of psychosis : exploring the impact of family interventions and understanding the role of young people in their parent's care
nature of this construct makes it difficult to quantify (Hooley & Parker, 2006). The more consistent reduction in critical comments as opposed to other elements of expressed emotion may be reflectiveExpand
The last taboo: The experience of violence in first‐episode psychosis caregiving relationships
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of routinely asking first-episode carers about their experience of patient violence and the development of interventions that are able to take account of the ongoing nature and complexity of the caregiving relationship should be explored. Expand
Psychosocial interventions in early psychosis
Objectives: To describe the development of early intervention services for psychosis and the evidence for psychosocial interventions in a first episode of psychosis. Method: A descriptive reviewExpand

Evaluating a model of caregiving for people with psychosis
TLDR
The findings provide some support for an interactive, stress-coping model of caregiving in psychosis and suggest effective coping in caregivers may improve with support from confidants. Expand
An exploratory randomised controlled trial of a support programme for carers of patients with a psychosis
TLDR
The carers’ programme did not offer any significant advantage on any of the outcome measures: psychological morbidity, negative appraisal, coping or social support, and meeting ‘needs’ may not improve caregiver distress. Expand
Emotional dysfunction in schizophrenia spectrum psychosis: the role of illness perceptions
TLDR
Positive illness perceptions in psychosis are clearly related to depression, anxiety and self-esteem, and clinical interventions that foster appraisals of recovery rather than of chronicity and severity may improve emotional well-being in people with psychosis. Expand
Patient Perceptions of Caregiver Criticism in Psychosis: Links With Patient and Caregiver Functioning
TLDR
This study supports the validity of using feedback from patients to assess the emotional climate of the family environment by examining the association of patient ratings of carer criticism with patient and carer characteristics. Expand

TLDR
Written emotional disclosure can help carers who are experiencing trauma symptoms following a relative's first episode of psychosis, if writing about emotional events is beneficial through mechanisms of exposure then screening participants for trauma symptoms may eliminate previous research inconsistencies.

TLDR
It is shown that EE and the burden of care are related, and that EE is more dependent on relatives' appraisal of the patient condition than on patients' actual deficits. Expand
Discrepant illness perceptions, affect and expressed emotion in people with psychosis and their carers
TLDR
In this sample, meta-cognitive carer representations of illness in psychosis are related to negative affective reactions in carers, but not to EE. Expand
Expressed emotion as an adaptation to loss
TLDR
The results are consistent with Bowlby's attachment theory, where EOI and coercive criticism maybe understood as adaptive reactions to perceived loss and Implications for family intervention in first-episode psychosis and the prevention of high EE are discussed. Expand
Influence of carer expressed emotion and affect on relapse in non-affective psychosis
TLDR
Carer criticism was associated with patient anxiety, low carer self-esteem and poor carer coping strategies, and the hypothesis that the effect is mediated through affective changes was partially supported. Expand
Family intervention for schizophrenia.
TLDR
Family intervention may reduce the number of relapse events and hospitalisations and would therefore be of interest to people with schizophrenia, clinicians and policy makers. Expand
