The Living Through Psychosis programme continues to promote a service that engages the patient actively in their recovery. The programme draws on current research findings to determine key areas to target in psychological recovery. The findings presented above demonstrate that skills such as emotion regulation can be learnt during recovery from psychosis and that it can lead to improvements in many factors related to positive recovery. The programme has revised some of its outcome measures and continues to use the PSYRATS measure as a screening tool but no longer as an outcome measure. The programme continues to aim towards being a central part of care planning for each person in this vulnerable patient group.
New developments this year are the completion of one Doctoral research project and the commencement of a second research project. This year all graduates of the programme are given the option of attending a level 2 programme which extends over 16 sessions. This is a pilot project and will be evaluated and reviewed in 2017.
