Implicit and explicit self-stigma, psychological flexibility and outcomes in first episode psychosis
Thorrington, S. 2013. Implicit and explicit self-stigma, psychological flexibility and outcomes in first episode psychosis. PhD Thesis Canterbury Christ Church University Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology
Section A reviews the literature from two areas: it looks first at empirical studies exploring self-stigma in psychosis and secondly at psychological flexibility in psychosis. In doing so, the review aims to consider the question as to whether the psychological flexibility model, as presented by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, can help us to understand how and why self-stigma can have a detrimental impact on some individuals experiencing symptoms of psychosis.
