The results of this study could help reduce fears about more intense treatments to people who show warning signs of possible psychosis, but not the disease itself diagnosed, though the study is small, so that the results inconclusive.
This shows that the therapy is safe enough and reasonably effective to provide psychosocial care to these patients. There is no evidence to suggest that antipsychotic drugs are needed in the first line of treatment.
Researchers have been working to identify people at risk of developing psychotic disorders. The importance of early signs and symptoms of serious mental illness is not in dispute. However, the best way to treat or prevent these disorders remains a matter of discussion.
Dr McGorry, professor at the Centre for Youth Mental Health at the University of Melbourne, says that only about 36 percent of high-risk individuals probably develop a psychotic disorder within three years that are identified – so there is concern of treating those at risk with specific drugs, which come with side effects.
Another concern is that individuals bear the label of mental illness unnecessarily.
A new small study raises the possibility that rising walks in nature could make people more creative to get her away from the distractions of technology.
Researchers specializing in psychology and brain said the study is more suggestive than definitive. But the study’s lead author, Ruth Ann Atchley, head of the psychology department at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, believes that points to a truth about what you get to go outside and be in nature.
According to him, there is a restorative effect of nature to help us better and more effectively engage in the behavior of higher-order thinking. Researchers suspect that nature gives rise to higher levels of creativity.
Researchers know that nature can affect the mind through relaxation and participation, acting as a kind of “positive drug”. The researchers behind the study – at the University of Kansas and the University of Utah – wanted to know about the effects of exposure to nature, both in the long term and the short term.
The study was designed to examine the levels of creativity, as she explained, and she believes the results suggest that exposure to nature spurred creativity hikers. The research team speculated that the minds of campers benefit from being away from the distractions of technology because they are not allowed to take electronics.
