Clinical High Risk for Psychosis: Identification, Assessment and Intervention 
Psychotic disorders can result in immense personal, social and economic costs to individuals, families, and society. Despite therapeutic advances, some with psychosis continue to experience poor outcomes. Research spanning two decades suggests that early intervention, even before the onset of florid psychosis, has the potential to improve the wellbeing and future outcomes of those who may otherwise go on to develop more severe illness. However, such outcomes can only be achieved through careful implementation of programs that focus on: 1) outreach, education, and identification of individuals at clinical high risk of developing a psychotic disorder (CHRp); 2) evaluation of the CHRp syndrome and risk, and 3) implementation of specialized, evidence-based interventions to address the specific needs of this population. This presentation will provide an overview of the critical components of identifying, assessing, and treating individuals at clinical high risk for developing psychosis.


Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.    Summarize the evidence to support early intervention for Clinical High Risk for Psychosis syndromes.
2.    Recognize the signs and symptoms associated with Clinical High Risk for Psychosis.
3.    Describe the vital elements of identification, assessment, and intervention needed in a program designed to address Clinical High Risk for Psychosis.
