On this episode of Sanity, Dr. Jason Duncan and Dr. Emily Owens discuss psychosis and the prodromal stages of psychosis. They cover risk factors for developing psychotic disorders and share information about therapeutic interventions for these individuals. Dr. Owens provides numerous examples differentiating symptoms of prodromal psychosis from normal behavior, and she explains how it is often difficult to parse out psychotic symptoms due to the fact their age of onset is similar to many different mental health disorders. Dr. Owens also provides information about racial disparities in the diagnosing of psychotic disorders.
