Moral cognition, the missing link between psychotic symptoms and acts of violence: a cross-sectional national forensic cohort study. BMC Psychiatry 19(408), 2-24 

Course Description: Individuals with schizophrenia are ten times more likely to commit homicide in comparison to members of the general population. An understanding of the relationship between psychosis and violent acts is necessary for violent act reduction and stigmatization prevention. Researchers supporting the accompanying study have found that moral cognitions can effectively mediate the relationship between specific psychotic symptoms and violence-type, the degree of seriousness relative to the specific violent act, and homicide. These researchers further noted the resultant implications for related risk assessment, treatment, and violence prevention.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the relationship between moral cognitions, psychosis symptoms, and acts of violence
  2. Consider the role of moral cognitions in patients with schizophrenia
  3. Understand the statistical analyses pertaining to the overall results of this study
  4. Review the conclusions and interpretations concerning patients diagnosed with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder who committed an act of violence compared to those who committed homicide

  • Read and understand Moral cognition, the missing link between psychotic symptoms and acts of violence: a cross-sectional national forensic cohort study
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
