About the Course

Previous research in OASIS (a South London service for young people with an At Risk Mental State) has contributed to our understanding of the development of psychotic symptoms. A common feature of the At Risk Mental State is attenuated psychotic symptoms, and we have found that cognitive processes are disrupted before the expression of full-blown symptoms, and may be important in their aetiology. Following up these young people provides a means of identifying factors that influence symptomatic and functional changes over time and predictors of outcome in this group.” 

An opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to help you and your service to deliver evidence based psychological interventions to people who present with ARMS, and to meet the Access and Waiting Time Standards.”
