Objective: To evaluate a cognitive therapy based intervention designed to reduce the traumatic symptoms and emotional dysfunction, which can follow a first episode of psychosis.
Materials and methods: 66 first episode patients were randomized to receive either a cognitive therapy intervention or treatment as usual and assessed at baseline, post intervention (6 months) and follow-up (12 months) on a variety of measures including Impact of Events Scale, Calgary Depression Scale and PANSS.
Results: Interim analysis revealed significant benefit for those receiving the cognitive therapy intervention in terms of reduced trauma symptoms and other outcome measures.
Conclusions: The findings are discussed in the context of
current models of trauma and psychosis and their implications for clinical practice.
