Book Description :

Impairments in social functioning are among the hallmark characteristics of schizophrenia. These deficits predict relapse rate and may be independent of better-studied symptoms such as hallucinations. Additionally, studies indicate that social functioning is one of the most important domains for individuals with schizophrenia, many of whom consider social functioning to be a key area of unmet need. Social Cognition and Interaction Training (SCIT) is a group psychotherapy for individuals with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Social cognition refers to the thinking processes that people use to navigate the social world. Deficits in social cognition hinder people with schizophrenia and other mental illnesses from living meaningful, socially connected lives. The SCIT Clinician Guide provides comprehensive instruction for mental health professionals to enhance social cognition and promote rewarding social lives for their clients. SCIT is appropriate for adults suffering from psychotic illness and who have interpersonal difficulties as a result. SCIT is particularly appropriate for individuals with symptoms of suspiciousness and paranoia. The authors summarize the rationale and theoretical underpinnings of SCIT, distinguish it from other treatments for psychosis, provide an overview of the intervention, explain the links between the intervention activities and the underlying theoretical model, and describe SCIT implementation session-by-session. SCIT is a 20- to 24-week group-based treatment that can be delivered by mental health clinicians of all levels in a wide range of community and hospital settings. SCIT uses exercises, games, discussion formats, and interactive social stimuli to target and improve specific areas of social cognitive dysfunction, and includes user-friendly tips and handouts for clients. It also provides web access to a library of videos, images and slide shows that are used to bring the SCIT training sessions to life.

Book Description :

22q11.2 Microdeletion syndrome (22qDS) is caused by a recurrent genetic mutation associated with a high degree of social impairment, and also represents one of the greatest known genetic risk factors for schizophrenia. This syndrome therefore represents an excellent model for investigating how a known genetic "lesion" may lead to abnormal development of social behavior and to the expression of a diagnosable psychotic disorder. However, little is known about vulnerabilities that contribute to the development of psychosis in this population, nor have the neurobiological substrates of social cognitive impairment been explored in 22qDS. The present investigation sought to examine social cognitive risk factors, at the level of both behavior and neuroanatomy, which may contribute to psychotic symptomatology in adolescents and young adults with 22qDS. We conducted three separate studies to investigate these questions. In the first study (22qDS= 31, controls=31), using behavioral measures, we sought to determine whether social cognition better predicts positive symptoms than does non-social cognition in 22qDS. The primary aims of study 2 (22qDS=31, controls= 34) were: 1) to investigate neuroanatomic alterations in socially relevant brain regions (i.e., amygdala, fusiform gyrus, superior temporal gyrus, insula, anterior cingulate, and frontal regions), using structural magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI); and 2) to determine whether such alterations were associated with psychotic symptoms and social cognition in 22qDS patients. Finally, in study 3 (22qDS=26, controls=23), we used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to: 1) examine alterations in white matter tracts connecting these `social brain' regions in 22qDS patients relative to typically developing youth, and 2) to determine whether white matter microstructural abnormalities were associated with psychotic symptoms and social cognition in 22qDS patients. Several novel findings emerged from these studies. First, in study 1, we found that Theory of Mind (ToM) performance was the best predictor of positive symptoms in 22qDS, accounting for 39% of the variance in symptom severity. In study 2, in comparison to typically developing controls, 22qDS participants showed disruptions in multiple brain regions associated with social cognition. In particular, those with 22qDS had increased cortical volumes in bilateral orbitofrontal cortices and insula, which appeared to be driven by increased cortical thickness in these regions, and decreased cortical volume in bilateral fusiform gyrus and anterior cingulate, which appeared to be driven by decreased surface area in these regions. We also found that increased cortical thickness in the right medial orbitofrontal cortex was significantly associated with increased positive symptom severity in 22qDS, while increased right amygdala volumes were associated with better social cognition performance in 22qDS. Finally, in study 3, in comparison to typically developing controls, 22qDS participants showed reduced white matter integrity in the left inferior frontal fasciculus and right uncinate fasciculus, fiber tracts that connect occipital to the temporal lobes and medial temporal with orbitofrontal regions, respectively. 22qDS participants also had significantly decreased axial diffusivity, a putative index of axonal damage, in multiple tracts, including the bilateral inferior and superior longitudinal fasciculus (which connects the parietal to the frontal lobes), and the uncinate fasciculus. Greater severity of positive symptoms was associated with decreased axial diffusivity in the left inferior frontal fasciculus and right superior longitudinal fasciculus; in contrast, increased axial diffusivity in the left inferior longitudinal fasciculus was associated with better social cognition in 22qDS. Considering that both social impairment and neuroanatomic abnormalities predate the onset of psychosis in 22qDS, these findings provide novel information about the relationship between social cognition and psychosis risk in 22qDS. Importantly, study 2 is the first to investigate multiple measures of structural neuroanatomy (i.e., volume, cortical thickness, surface area) in 22qDS and provides important information about functionally distinct subcomponents that may contribute to alterations in cortical volume in social relevant neuroanatomic regions. Also, when testing the joint contribution of behavioral and neuroanatomic measures to prediction of positive symptoms in 22qDS, we found that right medial orbitofrontal cortical thickness and ToM task performance accounted for 43% of the variance in positive symptoms in 22qDS, significantly improving the prediction of positive symptoms in comparison to the ToM behavioral measure alone. Study 3 represents one of the first investigations of multiple DTI indices (i.e., fractional anisotropy, axial and radial diffusivity) in 22qDS. Our pattern of results suggests that white matter microstructural disruption in 22qDS may be driven by axonal damage, rather than demyelination. Finally, given that ToM was a robust predictor of positive symptoms in our sample and exploratory analyses found relationships between positive symptoms and neuroanatomic regions associated with social cognition in 22qDS, these findings suggest that social cognition may be a valuable intermediate trait for predicting the development of psychosis.

Book Description :

Early-onset psychosis (EOP), or onset of overt psychosis prior to age 18, is associated with particularly severe neurocognitive and social impairment, and poor prognosis (Frangou, 2010; Vyas & Gogtay, 2012). While significant impairments have been documented in specific cognitive domains (Fioravanti, Carlone, Vitale, Cinti, & Clare, 2005; Heinrichs & Zakzanis, 1998), working memory (WM) in particular is an area that has been theorized to represent a reliable cognitive endophenotype of schizophrenia. However, the majority of literature to date has focused on adult-onset schizophrenia, in which relevant developmental processes have already unfolded. Adolescence provides a privileged opportunity to understand how psychosis-related abnormalities in the structure and function of neural networks affect the relationships between social cognition, neurocognition and functioning, as well as an opportunity to define biomarkers for development of treatments to improve functional outcomes. As such, the first study examined the relationship between individual WM capacity and task-based neural activation and functional connectivity. Results indicated that, relative to typically developing controls, patients with EOP have poorer WM performance, lower overall WM capacity, reduced neural activity in WM-associated brain regions, and reduced coupling of WM-associated regions. Additionally, EOP patients evidenced greater neural activation and connectivity with increasing age, suggesting an atypical developmental trajectory along with general inefficiency of WM circuitry. Additional insight into the neurodevelopmental processes relevant to psychosis can come from examining genetically defined high-risk cohorts, such as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS). The second study evaluated the phenotypic overlap between EOP and 22q11DS by investigating the profile of neurocognitive and social cognitive impairment in individuals with EOP relative to 22q11DS patients and healthy controls. Despite greater overall cognitive impairment in the 22q11DS group (with the exception of verbal fluency, for which EOP patients evidenced greater impairment), patients with EOP and 22q11DS had comparable deficits in processing speed. 22q11DS and EOP patients also evidenced similar patterns of relationships between cognitive measures and psychotic symptoms. However, neurocognition and social cognition largely did not predict future functioning among the groups. The third and final study examined plasticity-based cognitive training (CT) as a potential intervention for such cognitive impairments in EOP. Results from the feasibility study indicated that slightly over half of participants were able to complete at least 10 hours of CT; dropout was primarily due to finding training boring. However, patients completing training showed higher post- versus pre-CT social functioning, and pre- to post-CT reductions in general and anxiety symptoms. This investigation into neurocognitive and social cognitive dysfunction in EOP, which incorporates perspectives from an fMRI paradigm and a comparison to a genetic high-risk cohort, has the potential to generate knowledge on a clinically significant and understudied area, and potentially produce new treatment targets for EOP.

Book Description :

ObjectiveTo test associations between mindful disposition, social cognition, and social functioning, in a sample of people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders (SSDs) enrolled in a mindfulness-based social cognition training.BackgroundReal-life outcomes are becoming more relevant as a measure of the effectiveness of interventions. People with SSDs often have difficulties engaging in daily activities and spending time with their peers, which are core elements of social functioning (Palumbo et al., 2015). Social cognition is a core predictor of social functioning (Green et al., 2015), but no mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) targeting aspects of social cognition have been developed for people with psychosis.Materials and MethodsA sample of 30 participants with SSDs was included. Theory of mind was measured with the short version of the Hinting Task and with the Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (RMET). Attributional Style was measured with the Attribution of Intentions and Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ). Mindful Attention and Awareness Scale (MAAS) measured mindful disposition. Finally, social functioning was evaluated with Personal and Social Performance (PSP). Results and ConclusionsPearson correlations are shown in Figure 1. In keeping with previous reports, social cognition was moderately associated with social functioning (Couture et al., 2006). Hinting Task and RMET assess mental state attribution, and its association was expected (Browne et al., 2016); on the other hand, they were not associated with attributional style. Further, MAAS was linked to attributional style, but not with mental state attribution. We hypothesized that an MBI should focus on attributional bias rather than theory of mind in order to improve social functioning.ReferencesGreen, M. F., Horan, W. P., & Lee, J. (2015).

Book Description :

This book collects chapters from a number of scientists all over the world, giving their contribution to the comprehension and clinical management of psychosis. The book adopts a perspective that respects the complexity of the human person and his/her relationships. It devotes a space both to the deepening of the more strictly biological aspects, the psychological aspects and the social aspects. Each section of the book (biological, psychological, social) reveals a deep connection with the themes of the other sections, showing the strength of this biopsychosocial interweaving. The relationship and the interweaving between these different areas is certainly a foundation of our existence and constitutes a law to which we cannot escape, so it is necessary that the biopsyosocial model is always considered in the interventions for the psychotic patient. This book also focuses on some specific and very innovative topics such as the importance of psychosocial factors and family factors, complementary approaches to psychosis managment, subclinical psychosis and relational aspects of psychosis.

Book Description :

Deficits in social cognition and metacognition in schizophrenics makes it difficult for them to understand the speech, facial expressions and hence emotion and intention of others, as well as allowing little insight into their own mental state. These deficits are associated with poor social skills, fewer social relationships, and are predictive of poorer performance in a work setting. Social Cognition and Metacognition in Schizophrenia reviews recent research advances focusing on the precise nature of these deficits, when and how they manifest themselves, what their effect is on the course of schizophrenia, and how each can be treated. These deficits may themselves be why schizophrenia is so difficult to resolve; by focusing on the deficits, recovery may be quicker and long lasting. This book discusses such deficits in early onset, first episode, and prolonged schizophrenia; how the deficits relate to each other and to other forms of psychopathology; how the deficits affect social, psychological, and vocational functioning; and how best to treat the deficits in either individual or group settings. Summarizes the types of social cognitive and metacognitive deficits present in schizophrenia Discusses how deficits are related to each other and to other forms of psychopathology Describes how deficits impact function and affect the recovery process Provides treatment approaches for these deficits

Book Description :

These three studies seek to contribute to the neurological characterization of the development of schizophrenia as well as begin to branch into understanding how neuroanatomical structure and function may relate to specific deficits in social cognition and social functioning within in this population. Paper #1 investigates the relationship between brain structure in young adults at clinical high risk for schizophrenia and social functioning. Paper #2 expands upon the findings of paper #1 by looking at brain structure, social cognition, and social functioning in children and risk for psychosis. Finally, paper #3 focuses on brain function for theory of mind in typically developing children and its relationship to social cognition and social functioning. Investigating the neural mechanisms underlying social cognitive deficits and social functioning impairment in young adults and children at risk for schizophrenia will contribute to the field's understanding of the development of this disorder.
