Content By: Pinna, F., Manchia, M., Paribello, P., & Carpiniello, B. (2020). The impact of alexithymia on treatment response in psychiatric disorders: A systematic review. Frontiers in Psychiatry, 11, e311.

Course Description: Clinical research indicates that pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments are effective for treating a variety of psychiatric disorders. However, epidemiological evidence suggests that the prevalence of psychiatric conditions has remained relatively stable over time suggesting that extraneous factors might modulate treatment effectiveness in clinical populations. Alexithymia has gained considerable attention as a relevant predictor of treatment response given observational evidence of its relationship with severity of psychiatric disorders and other somatic conditions—such as gastrointestinal problems. A review of existing literature shows preliminary evidence that alexithymia is correlated with treatment response across multiple psychiatric disorders.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify three factors of alexithymia that are correlated with treatment response in patients with mood disorders
  2. Describe the general effectiveness of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments in reducing levels of alexithymia
  3. Discuss two limitations that preclude the researchers from concluding alexithymia predicts treatment response for patients with psychiatric conditions

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand The impact of alexithymia on treatment response in psychiatric disorders: A systematic review
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the impact of alexithymia in the effectiveness of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment for common psychiatric conditions
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the role alexithymia may play in treating psychiatric conditions
