Psychiatr Danub 2021 Sep;33(Suppl 9):30-34

"Istituto Zetema" , Via Piave 7, 81100 Caserta, Italy,

The article addresses the emergence of new ways of expressing adolescent discomfort, ways that are consequence of a new way of functioning, of thinking and of being completely different from that which has been studied to date from Psychopathology. This raises profound questions which lead to rethink both the diagnostic equipment of the therapist, hi setting and the way to develop the therapeutic process. The article proposes some keys to understanding these emergencies and, on the basis of the experience matured, some guidelines for intervention.

Psychiatr Danub 2018 Nov;30(Suppl 7):405-408

Rehabilitation Center "Neamente", Via Nazionale, 88 - 83013 Mercogliano (AV), Italy, www.neamente.com.

Many clinicians do not have adequate knowledge and interest in assessing cognitive deficits in psychiatric patients. However, these deficits are crucial and key symptoms, which can lead to impairment of quality of life, worsening of symptoms of disorders and difficulties in social, family and work relationships. Another limitation to the assessment of cognitive deficits is the poor maneuverability and practicality of the main cognitive assessment tools. Because there are no appropriate pharmacological approaches, new techniques have been developed to improve cognitive abilities in these patients. The most important techniques concern cognitive remediation (CR). In this article we summarize the main techniques of cognitive remediation.

Assessing the critical issues of atypical antipsychotics in schizophrenic inpatients.

Psychiatr Danub 2017 Sep;29(Suppl 3):405-408

Neuropsychiatric Centre "Villa dei Pini", Avellino, Italy,

Antipsychotics are effective in reducing positive and disorganization symptoms of schizophrenia. Although SGAs initially all were believed to be more efficacious and tolerable than FGAs, several data show that the SGAs are no more effective than FGAs. In clinical practice, frequent switching of antipsychotic medications is widespread for lack of efficacy, adverse side effects, and partial or not-compliance response. This study suggested that most clinically stable inpatients with schizophrenia maintain their remission states after being switched to another atypical antipsychotic; but that at the end (after 20 years) of the observation period of our study, 11.54% of the patients assumed again typical antipsychotics (haloperidol).
