Psychosis: Psychological, Social and Integrative Approaches is a triannual peer-reviewed medical journal published by Routledge on behalf of the International Society for the Psychological Treatments of the Schizophrenias and other Psychoses. The main scope of the journal is research focused on the psychological treatments of psychosis (e.g. cognitive-behavior therapy, psychodynamic therapy, family therapy etc.) and the psycho-social causes of psychosis (e.g. poverty, drug abuse, child abuse and neglect, distressed families, urban living, discrimination, rape, war combat etc.). It contains original research, systematic reviews, commentaries on contentious articles, short reports, first-persons accounts, a book review section, and a correspondence column relating to the areas of psychiatry and psychology. The journal publishes papers on both quantitative research (e.g. rigorously designed outcome studies and epidemiological surveys) and qualitative research (e.g. case studies of therapy, first-person accounts of psychosis and experiences of people with psychosis in the mental health system), as well as papers focusing on conceptual and ethical issues.

According to the journal's editor-in-chief, John Read, the primary audience is psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and all professionals with an interest in mental health.[1] It was established in 2009 and is indexed in PsycINFO, EmCare, and Scopus.
