Abstract Background Mental health consumers invite us to abandon the pathology model, which is tied to pessimism, and instead to embrace a model of personal recovery that goes beyond being free from symptoms, and involves self-management of the illness. The Stages of Recovery Instrument (STORI) is a measure developed from the perspective of consumers according to a conceptual five-stage model of recovery. Aims The main aim of this work was to study the psychometric properties of the STORI, but we also set out to compare the stages of recovery in our sample with the five-stage model in the sample with which the scale was developed. Methods Our sample consisted of 95 people diagnosed with schizophrenia-spectrum psychoses, with a mean age of 34.74 ( SD  = 9.25). Results The STORI scores showed adequate psychometric properties in this sample. Cluster analysis indicated that the three-cluster model fitted the data better than the five-cluster model. Internal consistency of the STORI scores ranged between .83 and .87. STORI stages were associated with Recovery Styles Questionnaire scores. Discussion The results provide empirical validation of the STORI in other countries. Empirical evidence revealed that the stages of recovery found in our own and other clinical samples differ from those found in the samples with which the scale was developed.

Abstract Persons in recovery, providers, and policymakers alike are advocating for recovery-oriented mental health care, with the promotion of recovery becoming a prominent feature of mental health policy in the United States and internationally. One step toward creating a recovery-oriented system of care is to use recovery-oriented outcome measures. Numerous instruments have been developed to assess progress towards mental health recovery. This review identifies instruments of mental health rec...

Abstract Sex differences in age at onset, symptomatology, clinical course (see Walker et al., 2002 ) and functional impairment ( Thorup et al., 2007 ) are well documented in psychosis. The general pattern of findings is that males manifest an earlier onset, more severe symptoms and poorer prognosis than females. Limited studies examining individuals at clinical high-risk (CHR) suggest a similar pattern of sexual dimorphism ( Holtzman et al., in review , Corcoran et al., 2011 ). As part of the No...

Objective:To develop a brief measure of stage of psychological recovery from mental illness by identifying the best-performing items of the 50-item Stages of Recovery Instrument (STORI).Method:Item response modelling was used to identify a short form of the full-length STORI. The resulting items were subjected to factor analysis to further refine the subscales. A second data set was used to confirm the construct validity of the new measure. A correlational analysis was conducted to examine relat...

Abstract Objective Studies investigating indicators of recovery from schizophrenia yielded two concepts of recovery. The first is the reduction of psychiatric symptoms and functional disabilities (‘clinical recovery’), while the second describes the individual adaptation process to the threat posed to the individual sense of self by the disorder and its negative consequences (‘personal recovery’). Evidence suggests that both perceptions contribute substantially to the understanding of recovery a...

Objective: There is considerable interest in the concept of recovery from psychosis. Consumers describe recovery as a process as opposed to a clinical outcome. However, measures of recovery have an important role in the development of recovery-based mental health services. This study sought to investigate the validity and reliability of the Stages of Recovery Instrument (STORI) (Andresen et al., 2006). This is an Australian instrument chosen as a promising measure of recovery developed from the ...

Abstract The current report assesses the clinical, functioning and demographic data of a cohort enrolled in the P3 prevention program for psychosis; a Spanish National Health System and Ministry of Science funded program. Comparisons are made between those individuals who had converted to psychosis and those who had not at 3 years after an average of 24 treatment sessions. Subjects included 61 participants meeting Structured Interview for Prodromal Syndromes criteria, with ages ranging from 17 t...

Abstract Background Female gender and later onset of psychosis are both associated with better outcome. However whether their effects are independent, is not known. Method In 379 incident cases of psychoses, from an epidemiologically defined catchment area, admixture analysis was employed to generate age of onset classes. Five year course and outcome measured across clinical and social domains were used as dependent variables in regression analyses, to estimate associations of outcomes with gend...

Coping/recovery styles of integration and sealing over, reflecting the patient's dealing with his or her psychotic illness, influence the treatment adherence and, perhaps, the therapy outcome. Knowledge of these styles' potential clinical and personality correlates is so far limited. A semi-structured interview and self-rating questionnaires were used to assess 64 inpatients recovering from an acute episode of a schizophrenia spectrum disorder with regard to the prevailing coping/recovery style,...

This study assesses the effectiveness of our short Personal Recovery Training Program (PRTP) for mental health professionals. Fifty-two healthcare professionals from Italian mental health services and forty students in psychiatric rehabilitation completed the Recovery Knowledge Inventory (RKI) pre- and post-training, divided into two groups: the PRTP (N = 45) and the Family Psychoeducational Training Program (FPTP; N = 47). Participants’ understanding of personal recovery improved more significa...

Abstract Background/Objective: The interest in recovery processes in psychotic disorders has boosted the necessity of knowledge about the factors that could influence in such recovery. Negative symptomatology and the stigma have been negatively linked to the recovery process in psychosis. The aim of this investigation is to improve the understanding of how the recovery process is affected by negative symptomatology based on the analysis of the mediating effects of the internalized stigma. Method...

The impact of religiosity and spirituality (R/S) on mental health and the importance of incorporating R/S in mental health treatment have been previously explored. However, clarification is needed regarding the effects of R/S in the process of recovery from persistent mental disorders (PMDs). This study identifies how different R/S factors correlate with the stages of recovery, while considering individual psychological well-being and perceived social support. Seventy-five individuals who use Ma...

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Mental health treatments have become patient-centred. Evaluating recovery in people with mental health difficulties living in the community can help to develop better client-centred services. Community integration is critical to recovery in patients with mental health difficulties. WHAT DOES THIS PAPER ADD TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: This is the first study to use a single integrated measure of mental health recovery to evaluate the effect of community integration. Phy...
The concept of recovery in schizophrenia has always been a challenging issue both from the ontological and epistemological point of view. The ambiguity of the term “recovery” has led to lot of debates regarding conceptual constraints, application of recovery principles for different persons, subjective and objective outcomes, and personal vs. clinical improvement. This review was taken one step further to study recovery in schizophrenia with comorbidity. During the search for relevant articles, ...

AIM: The objective of this narrative review is to address the question: Should sport-based life skills interventions be developed for young people recovering from first episode psychosis? METHODS: A prose was developed through a broad, critical narrative review of literatures on (1) first episode psychosis recovery (FEP); and (2) life skills and sport, highlighting the conceptual (and limited empirical) links between the two. This style of review allowed for a critical examination of evidence fr...

AbstractTheoretical and empirical work is needed to adapt psychotherapy to psychosis. The article introduces dialogue therapy (DT), a philosophical-ethical, humanistic, and dialogue-oriented individual psychotherapy model for schizophrenia and other severe psychosis. Rather than introducing novel methods, DT offers a unified approach, including flexible methodology derived from existing psychotherapy traditions that focuses on difficulties of emotion, relation, identity, and self-regulation that...
