Programme Overview

The aim of this module is to enhance knowledge and understanding of the relevance of early intervention in the area of psychosis. It is imperative that the 1000 people who develops a condition that features psychosis in Ireland each year receive standardised, effective treatment without delay. The logic of early intervention is best exemplified by consideration of the consequences of a long duration of untreated psychosis. A holistic, multi-disciplinary approach is most appropriate with absolute inclusion of the individual with the psychosis as well as his/her family. The resources required to achieve this are substantial but will be recouped through the better outcomes affected people will attain and decreased service use in the years following the period of initial treatment.

This module is delivered as class attendance and directed study and assessed by assignment/essay.
