Introduction to the course on psychotic disorders

Since Kraepelin in the early 20th century coined the concept of “early dementia“, to designate what we call today as schizophrenia, the presence of certain deficits in attention, memory, executive functions, etc., has always been suspected in the case of these people.

Later, with the so-called “cognitive revolution“, which took place between the 1960s and 1970s, and the development of constructs such as social cognition (understood as the cognitive processes involved in how people think about themselves, other people, social situations and interactions) or metacognition (defined as cognition over cognition), the increased development and knowledge of these constructs also leads to the suspicion that people diagnosed with psychosis might present problems in these areas.

To date, and after much accumulated empirical evidence regarding whether people with psychosis present deficits in the previously mentioned areas, the results make it clear that such problems, to a greater or lesser degree, are present in psychosis. In this sense, if such deficits were not more significant or did not affect multiple areas of the person’s community functioning, they might not be as relevant as they are today. However, there is also much evidence accumulated over the last century that states that these problems sometimes interfere in a very important way with the psychosocial functioning of the people who present them.

Neurocognitive assessment and rehabilitation, in social cognition and metacognition

Therefore, given the relevance of evaluating and intervening on the areas mentioned above, the course on psychotic disorders presented below, belonging to the company Conciencia Formación and created by Dr. Carlos Rebolleda Gil, specifically covers, based on the latest scientific evidence, the ways to evaluate and rehabilitate at a neurocognitive level, in social cognition and in metacognition, patients with psychotic disorders, in order to help them reduce their limitations and improve their quality of life.
