Abstract

Background It is suggested that goals are hierarchically organised, with goals at the highest level representing fundamental values and motivations. These abstract goals are said to have a series of sub-goals which represent a means of reaching higher-level goals. While a number of studies have explored goals in the context of psychosis, little is known about idiographic goal generation processes in those experiencing psychosis. Methods Using a Behaviour Sequence Analysis approach, the aim of the current study was to assess the feasibility of the goal task for use with individuals experiencing psychosis. A total of 73 adults receiving care from UK rehabilitation services completed a goal task designed to elicit higher-level goals. Results Results indicated that the goal task may be a feasible tool to support those experiencing psychosis to generate lower- and higher-level goals. Conclusions The goal task utilised in the current study may therefore be a valuable goal generation tool for use by clinicians.
