We invite you to participate in a research study on the Psychologists perspective of the role of interpersonal and intra-personal factors on recovery in Psychosis.
Psychosis is a debilitating disorder which causes significant alterations to one's thoughts, affects, behaviours, and all aspects of life and is often chronic.
In Australia, Psychosis is prevalent in at least one in 100 people. Due to its debilitating effects, its chronicity, and prevalence, it is a leading mental health problem which currently has no cure. However, it is being treated and managed by multidisciplinary means.
Individual recovery is a popular concept and intervention programme for psychosis. It has shown promising results in helping individuals with psychosis to gain back their functionality and live a fulfilling life, despite the illness.
The current research aims to explore the interpersonal and intra-personal factors that could impact recovery in psychosis, with the intention that the results of this study would be of value to the mental health sector in Australia.
The participants include psychologists in Australia who have experience working with individuals with psychosis.
Data collection will take place via face-to-face, or skype interviews. Data collection will end on the 15 July 2019, and the study will be completed by 30 August 2019.
