Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (and Gender) in Psychosis But Were Afraid to Ask: A Narrative Review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In Chap. 6 I argue for a sex- and gender-based analysis (SGBA) to improve the science of psychosis research, describing how to conduct SGBA. I extend that argument in this chapter by reviewing what we currently know about sex and gender in psychosis highlighting gaps in our knowledge illustrating how SGBA might fill those gaps. I discuss several ways this can be achieved, such as through clarifying research findings and/or enhancing methodology demonstrating the potential for increasing our understanding of the development, expression, and recovery of psychotic experiences.
