Improving Emotion Recognition in Youth at Familial Risk of Developing Schizophrenia

This study focuses on youth who are at a genetically high-risk of developing psychosis (i.e., adolescents who have a first degree relative with schizophrenia (a sibling or a parent)). We offer a two-week emotion recognition training to these adolescents and test whether it improves their emotion recognition skills. This research will potentially contribute to the development of preventive care for youth family members of people who live with a mental health disorder.
