«The aim of this review was to evaluate the quantitative literature that has been published in the last 15 years on the romantic and sexual lives of people diagnosed with a psychotic disorder. In addition to cataloging the different topics addressed by researchers in this field, [the authors] also sought to identify variables associated with varying levels of romantic and sexual functioning.» (p. 23)

Type de traitement des données :
The review show that «[f]ive major topics were addressed in studies categorized as obstacle-related (i.e., sexual risk behavior, abnormal sexual behavior, sexual dysfunction, intimate partner violence, stigma) and six major topics were discussed in studies categorized as neutral or recovery-oriented (i.e., marital and sexual functioning, sexual selfperception, relationships, family planning and reproductive health, consent to sexual activity, sexual fantasies). Most of these studies were descriptive, neglecting contextual factors, transactional processes and longitudinal pathways, unlike much of the recent literature on intimate relationships and sexuality in healthy adolescents and adults […]. In addition, several relevant topics, including attachment, dyadic adjustment, and impact of various life stresses (e.g., parenthood, experiences of separation or divorce, living arrangements and financial circumstances, etc.) are largely overlooked in studies involving samples with psychotic disorders, yet are extensively studied among members of the general population or individuals with more common psychiatric disorders […].» (p. 38)
