Researchers in Amsterdam investigated the use of a mindfulness-based therapy for 16 people recovering from a recent experience of first-episode psychosis. 13 completed the therapy; there was no adverse effect on psychotic symptoms, and there was a decrease in agoraphobic symptoms, among others. Results will appear in an upcoming issue of Early Intervention in Psychiatry.
