A review of the distinction between depressive and psychotic symptom domains, current knowledge about the etiology and neurobiology of depression and psychosis, and how this knowledge can inform the treatment of patients with features of both.
Psychiatrists who treat patients with psychosis in institutional, community, and crisis settings provide evaluations and medication management, but rarely consider psychotherapeutic interventions. However, such interventions can be critical in recovery.
Culture—the way people make meaning and live their lives in particular social worlds—matters in psychosis. The authors explore how a patient's cultural background should influence the way clinicians think about treatment and care.
