Abstract

Normal personality characteristics among individuals with psychotic disorders have been the subject of extensive research, particularly with regard to determining their clinical correlates. Although these studies frequently stress the values of personality characteristics in informing treatment for psychosis, there is a dearth of specific guidance with regard to how to accomplish this task. In this chapter, we will discuss the importance of assessing personality factors to enhance treatment efficacy for psychosis. We will then present a generalized framework for using personality to inform treatment planning and the treatment process, and discuss ways in which this framework can be tailored to psychosocial interventions for individuals with psychosis. Common aspects of the experience of psychosis and its concomitant features (positive and negative symptoms, and changes in social experience) will also be reviewed with regard to their relevance to a personality-informed psychosis intervention. We strongly encourage the use of this framework to guide future research on the use of personality assessment to inform psychosocial psychosis interventions.
