The early detection and treatment of people at risk for psychosis is currently regarded as a promising strategy in fighting the devastating consequences of psychotic disorders. Currently, the 2 most broadly used sets of at-risk criteria, that is, ultra-high risk (UHR) and basic symptom criteria, were developed mainly in adult samples. We review the data regarding the presence and relevance of at-risk symptoms for psychosis in children and adolescents. The few existing studies suggest that… Expand
[Developmental Aspects in the Early Detection and Intervention in Clinical High Risk States for Psychosis].
TLDR
Age-related or developmental peculiarities in the early detection and intervention in psychoses become more and more apparent and should be more focused in future research in this field. Expand
Clinical profile, conversion rate, and suicidal thinking and behaviour in children and adolescents at ultra-high risk for psychosis: a theoretical perspective
TLDR
In UHR children and adolescents, like UHR young adults, the presence of Attenuated Psychotic Symptoms (APS) is the most frequently reported inclusion criterion at baseline, but there are frequently non-psychotic comorbid diagnoses of depressive and anxiety disorders. Expand
Adolescents and adults at clinical high-risk for psychosis: age-related differences in attenuated positive symptoms syndrome prevalence and entanglement with basic symptoms
TLDR
The prevalence of APSS in 13- to 35-year-old individuals seeking help in an early recognition program for schizophrenia and bipolar-spectrum disorders was examined and status was associated with greater suicidality and illness/psychophathology severity in this help-seeking cohort, emphasizing the need for clinical care.

Predictors of Outcomes in Adolescents With Clinical High Risk for Psychosis, Other Psychiatric Symptoms, and Psychosis: A Longitudinal Protocol Study
TLDR
The protocol of an innovative longitudinal cohort study of adolescents aged 12-17 will enable a better understanding of the clinical significance of CHR-P in adolescents, and shed new light on prognostic factors that can be used to refine the prediction of clinical outcomes and the implementation of preventive interventions. Expand
Clinical High Risk for Psychosis Syndromes Among Swiss and German Youth and Young Adults: Early Identification and Intervention
TLDR
In Germany and Switzerland, systematic research on early detection and intervention in psychosis has mainly considered both basic symptom and ultrahigh risk criteria, resulting in the first-ever staging model setting out an early and a late risk stage and a staged intervention model much in line with recent recommendations for intervention in a clinical high risk state.

Clinical high risk for psychosis in childhood and adolescence: findings from the 2-year follow-up of the ReARMS project
TLDR
The clinical profile of help seekers [stratified in non-CHR, CHR and first episode psychosis (FEP)] referred to child–adolescent mental health services is characterized and the cumulative transition rate from CHR to FEP in adolescents is monitored at the follow-up of 12 and 24 months. Expand

TLDR
More work is needed to determine valid and sufficiently specific clinical high-risk criteria, to distinguish risk factors, endophenotypes, and comorbidities from prodromal symptomatology, and to develop phase-specific interventions that titrate the risk of intervention to therisk of transition to mania and to functional impairment or distress. Expand
Clinical high risk for psychosis in children and adolescents: a systematic review
TLDR
It is shown that CHR children and adolescents present several clinical characteristics at baseline, with most attenuated positive-symptom inclusion criteria observed, reporting mostly perceptual abnormalities and suspiciousness, and presenting comorbid conditions such as depressive and anxiety disorders. Expand
Attenuated psychotic and basic symptom characteristics in adolescents with ultra-high risk criteria for psychosis, other non-psychotic psychiatric disorders and early-onset psychosis
TLDR
The prevalence and severity of positive, negative, disorganization, general, and basic symptoms in adolescent patients at ultra-high risk for psychosis (UHR), with other non-psychotic psychiatric disorders (PC) and with early-onset psychosis (EOP) are described and BS criteria is investigated. Expand
Neuropsychological profile of children and adolescents with psychosis risk syndrome: the CAPRIS study
TLDR
Evidence of cognitive impairment is provided in PRS children and adolescents and a relationship between greater cognitive impairment in executive functions and attention tasks and severe attenuated positive symptoms is shown. Expand

[Early detection of psychosis in children and adolescents - have developmental particularities been sufficiently considered?].
TLDR
Research on the clinical-prognostic validity of the at-risk criteria and their potential adaption to the special needs of children and adolescents is needed. Expand
Basic symptoms and the prediction of first-episode psychosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that both COPER and COGDIS are able to identify subjects at a high risk of developing psychosis and appear to be sufficiently frequent prior to onset of the first psychotic episode as well as sufficiently rare in persons of general population to be considered as valuable for an early detection of psychosis.

Transition and remission in adolescents at ultra-high risk for psychosis
TLDR
Half of young adolescents meeting UHR criteria continue to experience prodromal or psychotic symptoms after 2 years, however, they are at least three times more likely to have remitted from their UHR status than to have made a transition to psychosis. Expand

Cognitive 'basic symptoms' are prevalent in the general adolescent population, yet at a lower rate compared to EOP and NP, and may be a valuable criteria to be included in future 'at risk' studies in adolescents. Expand
