Publication: A Systematic Review of Psychosis in Social Work Literature
DSW Program Director Dr. Tonya Hansel and DSW Alum Dr. Serena Chaudhry are among the co-authors on a new study published in Social Work in Mental Health.
The article entitled "A Systematic Review of Psychosis in Social Work Literature" examines nine major social work journals for papers related to psychotic disorders and their treatment since the RAISE trials. According to the abstract, "We found that five of the nine journals had no relevant articles, two had a single article, and the remaining journals had three and four articles, respectively. The RAISE trials were not mentioned in any of the papers. These results highlight the poor visibility of psychosis in social work. Poor visibility limits social work’s ability to provide care despite its prevalence in adjacent fields."
