IBANEZ ROJO, Vicente. Critical approach to prevention and early intervention in psychosis. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.135, pp.215-240.  Epub Nov 11, 2019. ISSN 2340-2733.

Early intervention in psychosis has become the research model for understanding what is called the early stages of psychosis. After defining these phases, instruments to detect them and interventions to identify and address them have been developed. The model implies the idea of prevention. By anticipating in the early identification of initial phases, the advance of psychosis to the next stage is prevented. This work critically reviews these biomedical concepts and the risks of working from this perspective. Possible alternatives to approach psychosis from models that respect diversity are proposed.

Keywords : psychosis; early identificaron; prevention; ultra-high risk for psychosis.
