Psych Season 1 And 2 Torrent

Functional remediation is an intervention that aims to fill the gap between remission and recovery. Obviously inspired by traditional neurocognitive remediation techniques, such as those that have worked well in brain damage and other neuropsychiatric conditions, its major feature is that it focuses on functioning rather than cognition1.

As Insel6 has questioned, is it realistic to expect conditions as complex as psychotic, mood or anxiety disorders to respond to a singular intervention? Bipolar disorder, perhaps the most polymorphic and complex of all psychiatric conditions, clearly needs a multidisciplinary and integrative approach, combining the best of drug therapy, biophysical techniques, and psychosocial interventions.

It is happening in many fields within psychiatry that traditional outcomes, such as psychotic, depressive, manic or anxious symptoms, are being replaced or perhaps upgraded with other targets that are more closely correlated with functioning7. Neurocognitive symptoms are the best example. Conditions such as major depression, which were never the focus of neuropsychological assessment except to exclude patients at risk of dementia, are now being studied using not only mood, but also processing speed, executive function and memory as primary outcomes8. Neuroimaging and neuropsychological assessments, among other biomarkers, will be increasingly incorporated into clinical trials. Clinical staging will become part of routine assessment9. The growing interest in distal outcomes such as functioning as opposed to quality of life or symptoms will run in parallel with molecular and translational psychopathology10 and the explosion of personalized medicine as applied to mental health.

Lockdown caused by COVID-19 pandemic has a negative impact on mental health. The aim was to assess self-reported neurocognitive symptoms during the lockdown and identify associated vulnerable and protective factors in a sample of psychiatric patients in a Spanish population. These results are part of the Barcelona ResIlience Survey for Mental Health COVID-19 (BRIS-MHC) project. Neurocognitive symptoms were assessed through an online survey considering the five items that represented self-reported neurocognitive complaints. We split the sample into two groups based on the severity of the self-reported neurocognitive complaints: intact cognitive function/mild cognitive impairment (CI-) and moderate/severe cognitive impairment (CI+). Univariate analyses were used to compare both groups in terms of sociodemographic and clinical variables. Multiple logistic regression models were carried out to identify clinical variables and coping strategies associated with neurocognitive symptoms. 198 patients with different psychiatric diagnoses were included in this study. One hundred seventeen patients were classified in the CI- group and 81 in the CI+ group. Depressive symptoms and negative psychotic-like symptoms were vulnerable factors for neurocognitive impairment. Coping strategies of performing physical activity, carrying out relaxing activities and maintaining a routine were protective factors against cognitive impairment. Lockdown situation negatively impact on neurocognitive function. Psychopathological symptoms and coping strategies were associated with neurocognitive symptoms during lockdown in subjects with psychiatric illness. The early treatment of psychopathological symptoms in psychiatric patients and promoting coping strategies during lockdown should be considered an intervention strategy against cognitive impairment.

The first season of Psych originally aired in the United States on the USA Network television network between July 7, 2006 and March 2, 2007. Produced by Universal Cable Productions and Tagline Television, the series was created by Steve Franks, who served as executive producer with Kelly Kulchak and Chris Henze.

The comedy-drama series focuses on Shawn Spencer (James Roday), a police consultant who pretends to be psychic, and his assistant Burton "Gus" Guster, a pharmaceuticals salesman. The season consisted of fifteen 43-minute episodes, which aired at 10:00 p.m. on Fridays. Franks conceived the idea for the show when producers at Columbia Pictures requested he pitch them ideas for a TV program while he was working on the film Big Daddy. Initially rejected, the concept was shelved for several years until Franks collaborated with Kulchak to create an hour-long TV show. USA Network picked up the program, initially ordering an eleven-episode season.

Overall, the first season has received generally positive reviews from critics. Initially, the show was met with mixed reviews, with episodes later in the season receiving generally positive reception. Many critics compared the series to its lead-in program, Monk, leading to negative opinions on the program's originality. The premiere episode was watched by approximately 6.1 million viewers, making it the highest-rated scripted series premiere for a cable network. However, ratings decreased for the following episodes, with the next highest-rated episode achieving just 4.76 million viewers, according to the Nielsen ratings. The season finale, "Scary Sherry: Bianca's Toast", received the best reviews of the season and saw an increase in viewership.

Franks has cited multiple sources as inspiration for the show. His father, as well as multiple uncles, are former Los Angeles Police Department officers; Franks has given real-life experiences as direct inspiration for numerous events which occurred in the first season.[33][34] Franks later explained that his comedic inspiration for the program was that he always "thought it would be fun to apply my comic sensibility to a cop show".[34] He has since explained that the inspiration for the fake-psychic concept in the show was due to a longtime wish to write a show about a man with "no psychic abilities but just had a great grasp of details".[32][33] The program's unique comedy drama format has been explained by producers to have been inspired by several 1980s detective shows. A prominent source cited by executives and actors was the TV show Moonlighting.[32][35] Other sources include programs Remington Steele and Simon & Simon.[32][36]

Psych's first season commenced broadcasting in the United States on July 7, 2006, and ended with the airing of "Scary Sherry: Bianca's Toast" on March 2, 2007. The season's first eight episodes aired during July and August 2006, while the remaining seven were broadcast from January through March of the next year.[43][44] For the entire first season, Psych aired at a 10:00 P.M. ET/PT time slot on Fridays. Every episode in the season, save the premiere, ran for an hour, including commercials. Twelve of the season's fifteen episodes were 43 minutes in length, while "Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Piece" and "Woman Seeking Dead Husband: Smokers Okay, No Pets" ran for one minute less, and "Pilot" was a special extended episode.[45][46] The episode "Pilot" ran for 66 minutes, in an hour-and-a-half time slot with commercials. The international version of the episode ran for an extended 90 minutes.[45][47] USA Network's sister broadcast network NBC aired episodes from season 1 on August 7 and 14, 2016.[48][49]

The show's time slot had previously been occupied by the first season of USA Network's revival of Kojak, which lasted for ten episodes in mid-2005 before being cancelled.[50][51] After Kojak's cancellation, the slot was replaced by hit series Monk. The show was entering its fifth season, and received very high ratings in the Friday timeslot. Hoping that Psych would share in Monk's successful ratings, USA Network executives moved the fifth season to a 9:00 P.M. slot on the same day, airing directly before Psych. The pairing was well-received, being called a "well-written comedy-mystery block that comprises some of the best two hours on television".[52][53]

Tagline Productions and Universal Cable Productions produced the first season of Psych; series creator and showrunner Steve Franks was the executive producer, along with Kelly Kulchak and Tagline executive Chris Henze.[34][54] Jack Sakmar, Kerry Lenhart, and Mel Damski were co-executive producers, while Paulo De Olviera and Wendy Belt Wallace produced, and Tracey Jeffery was the consulting producer.[54][55] Erin Smith was the production manager and Michael McMurray was the director of photography, while Allan Lee and Anupam Nigam acted as the season's script editors.

Sakmar collaborated to write the seventh and fourteenth episodes, with assistance from Douglas Steinberg on the latter.[63][64] Script editor Anupam Nigam also wrote two episodes.[65] William Rabkin, who would later write a series of novels for the series,[66] collaborated with Lee Goldberg to write the ninth episode.[67]

Executive producer Mel Damski, who had been nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in a Drama for his work on the series Lou Grant, directed the second and ninth episodes of the season.[68][69] Michael Zinberg, who was working as a director on Monk, was the only other person who directed more than a single episode; he directed two, the third and tenth episodes.[70] The people who directed a single episode were Grey's Anatomy director Jeff Melman,[71] It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia producer Matt Shakman,[72] occasional Rescue Me director John Fortenberry,[73] frequent Dawson's Creek director Michael Lange,[74] frequent Veronica Mars director John T.
