Psychosis and gender: Everything you always wanted to know about sex (and gender) in psychosis but were afraid to ask

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In Chap. 5 in “General Aspects,” I argue for 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 and illustrating how SGBA might fill those gaps by clarifying research findings and/or enhancing methodology, ultimately increasing our understanding of the development, maintenance, and recovery of psychotic experiences, strengthening my argument from Chap. 5.
