Cannabis use is prevalent in young adults with recent-onset schizophrenia or a related psychotic disorder, even though it is associated with a negative impact on the course of these conditions and an increase in psychotic symptoms. Maarten Smeerdijk studies the processes underlying patients’ continued use of cannabis. He also investigates the short and long-term effects of Family Motivational Intervention, in which parents receive training in interaction and communication skills with the aim of reducing cannabis use in young adults with recent-onset schizophrenia.
