Description

How many of us have been in a clinical interview and wondered, “Could this be a thought disorder?” Sometimes it’s unclear which symptoms are worth concern and which ones are more typical. Dr. Sharp's guest, Dr. Michelle Friedman-Yakoobian, has been conducting research and practice with psychotic disorders and prodromal states for nearly her entire academic career.   In this interview Dr. Sharp and Dr. Friedman-Yakoobian discuss:

  • When should we really start assessing for psychosis?
  • How to separate OCD from delusions or hallucinations?
  • The CEDAR Clinic’s standard battery for assessing psychotic symptoms
  • Treatment recommendations for high-risk individuals
