This article presents drawings done by adult clients in individual and group therapy in outpatient settings who had an array of serious psychological problems. The clients' drawings were used as adjunct tools to various therapy models. Drawing in individual and group therapy sessions was a powerful therapeutic tool which helped clients express themselves, and helped their therapists to better understand how their clients see their world.

Publisher:

Psychodynamic therapy with psychotics has been reviewed and studied by different analysts such as Searles (1965), Rosenfeld (1988), and others. Nevertheless, there are almost no updated articles on supervision of this therapy. The article addresses this issue and the different aspects of supervision of psychodynamic therapy of psychotics. Therapy-related issues, such as holding, communications and interpretations, differentiation, boundaries, psychotic transference, and countertransference are discussed extensively. The authors also explore some of the difficulties involved in these processes and the implications for the supervision process.

Persecutory symptoms and perceptual disturbance in a community sample of older people: the Islington study

Authors:
LIVINGSTON G., et al
Journal article citation:
International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 16(5), May 2001, pp.462-468.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Describes a study in Islington, an inner London borough. Residents aged 65 or over were interviewed at home. The Short-CARE was used to elicit psychiatric symptoms and diagnosis. Sociodemographic particulars were elicited using the Client Sociodemographic and Service Receipt Inventory. Questions were asked regarding sight and hearing. Subsections of the geriatric mental scale were used to identify people who had paranoid symptoms and perceptual disturbance (PDD). 720 people were interviewed. Twenty-eight (3.9%) participants scored positively on the PPD sub-scales of the GMS. Analysis found the significant independent predictors were dementia, drinking alcohol in last 6 months, drinking alcohol to help sleep, subjective memory loss and uncorrected visual impairment. Concludes that there is a relatively high prevalence of PPD in older people living in the community. This is not associated with higher use of services despite the increased needs. Further studies should consider interventions to meet this unmet need.

Predictors of later schizophrenia and affective psychosis among attendees at a child psychiatry department

Authors:
CANNON Mary, et al
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Psychiatry, 178, May 2001, pp.420-426.
Publisher:
Royal College of Psychiatrists

Schizophrenia has been linked with psychological problems in childhood but there is little information on precursors of affective psychosis. Childhood item sheets, which give standardised information on signs and symptoms of mental illness in the year preceding assessment are completed for all attendees at the children's department of the Maudsley and Bethlem Royal Hospital. The authors examined item sheet data on individuals with an adult diagnosis of schizophrenia or affective psychosis and a comparison group with no adult mental illness. Finds that abnormal suspiciousness or sensitivity and relationship difficulties with peers are associated with later schizophrenia. In contrast, affective psychosis is associated with childhood hysterical symptoms and disturbances in eating. Concludes that childhood psychological precursors for schizophrenia and affective psychosis differ and do not simply reflect non-specific psychiatric disturbance in adolescence.
