Course Overview

In this course, we will focus on why and how to intervene in the early stages of psychosis. You will learn about the history and context for early detection and specialized treatment of psychotic disorders, the evidence that early intervention services are effective in improving a variety of clinical and functional outcomes, how to identify early warning signs of psychosis, key elements of specialized early treatment, and ways you can apply these strategies in your own practice.

About the Course Author

Monique Kahn, Psy.D. received her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. She completed a pre-doctoral internship at Spokane Mental Health in Washington, which included specialty rotations in behavioral medicine and time-limited psychotherapies. She is licensed as a psychologist in Maine, where she was in private practice for 14 years, providing services to adult clients with varied presenting issues, but with particular emphasis on the treatment of anxiety disorders, the relationship between psychosocial stress and illness, insomnia, and coping with chronic illness. She has taught in the undergraduate psychology program at Husson University in Maine. In addition, she has worked as a content writer and psychology subject matter expert for several major educational publishing firms. She joined Relias as a clinical content writer and subject matter expert in 2016.

Dr. Pollard is a Licensed Psychologist, and Director of the Office of Behavioral Health for the Maine Department of Health and Human Services. She recently served as an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine, and Clinical Director of the Specialized Treatment Early in Psychosis (STEP) Program. After completing her B.A. at UMaine Farmington, Dr. Pollard earned her MA and PhD at the University of Connecticut where she studied jail diversion programs, particularly the relationship between perceived coercion and outcomes, gender and trauma specific treatment for justice involved women, and other services research for the commissioner's office of the State of Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addictions Services (DMHAS). During graduate school, Dr. Pollard had an influential clinical experience of working with a young person in the early stages of psychosis, which inspired her to pursue training in early intervention at Yale, where she completed a 2-year fellowship and served as STEP's first project director. She returned to her home state of Maine, founding an early intervention service for psychosis there before returning to Yale to join the faculty in 2013. Dr. Pollard's interests include refining early intervention, prevention, and detection for psychosis; workforce development in Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) for early psychosis; successful transition from CSC programs; and, coming full circle, the overlap between first episode psychosis and the justice system. She is Program Chair for Mental Health for the American Public Health Association (APHA), Chair Elect for the Mental Health Section of APHA, and a past recipient of the APHA Mental Health Section Award "For Excellence in the Field of Mental Health."  Jessica Pollard, PhD has declared that no conflict of interest, Relevant Financial Relationship or Relevant Non-Financial Relationship exists.
