Women in Psychiatry and Psychology: Interview


To be more than an academic journal has been the mission of Consortium Psychiatricum since its very inception. We constantly strive to share experience and create dialogue, therefore we look for new ways of interaction between authors, readers and the editorial team. 

Following this mission, our team has launched a special “Interview” section: we talk to our authors, guest editors, and editorial board members to get to know more about them and the importance of their academic work.

The latest conversation is dedicated to the role of women in psychology and our heroines are members of the editorial board and authors of the journal. They recall what led them to the profession, share some wisdom with the new generation, give advice on how not to get bored during the next COVID-19 wave, and talk about what it’s like to work in mental health and advance science being a modern woman.

Message from the Editor

Posted: 15.11.2021

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to introduce the third issue of the journal Consortium Psychiatricum. This is a thematic issue devoted to individuals’ first psychotic episode. The articles included in this issue cover biological, social, and clinical issues connected with the first episode of psychosis. 

In the editorial article, Professor Heinz Katschnig shares his experiences of organizing a family school to learn how to live with schizophrenia that has been functioning in Vienna for 35 years. It is a good example of the development of independent living skills and autonomy of young patients who faced psychosis.

The problem of compliance and factors that mediate drug compliance in patients after their first psychotic episode are explored in the research article by colleagues from St. Petersburg. Clinical features of manifest psychoses in patients admitted to the “First episode psychosis clinic” in 2020 and 2019 are described by colleagues from Moscow. A fundamental article on lipid biomarkers in schizophrenia, as written by a group of scientists from Skolkovo in collaboration with clinicians from the leading mental clinics in Moscow, shares findings about ceramide species’ alterations that might be specific to patients with schizophrenia. 

The historical review of research in social psychiatry conducted at the Moscow Research Institute of Psychiatry and the implementation of results in clinical practice was written by authors from the Department of Social and Biological Research of the Institute. 

Articles on the organization of community mental care have come from India and Mexico. 

I wish you pleasant reading.

Message from the Editor

Posted: 01.06.2021

Dear colleagues!

I am pleased to introduce the second issue of Consortium Psychiatricum journal in 2021. It is a thematic issue devoted to the forthcoming ICD-11 implementation and to the chapter on Mental, Behavioural and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. From 2022, country members of the World Health Organization are recommended to start the transition from ICD-10 to ICD-11. Knowledge of changes in the classification is essential for its further adoption along with awareness of attitudes and concerns about ICD-11 innovations among mental healthcare professionals.

In this issue, we collected articles that, from our point of view, highlight the changes in the classification system and at the same time reflect the views of professionals from different countries of the world.

The editorial article on ICD-11 Revision of Mental Disorders is presented by a group of experts including Dr. Melita Vujnovic, WHO Representative to the Russian Federation, and Professor Geoffrey Reed who served as the Senior Project Officer for the ICD-11 chapter on Mental, Behavioral and Neurodevelopmental Disorders and other related chapters.

Cultural aspects of mental disorders that play a substantial role in the new classification are explored in the review article. A report on the participation of Russian clinicians in the ICD-11 development and implementation is followed by two research articles presenting studies of the attitudes of the Russian professional community regarding ICD-11 and the use of ICD-10 by Russian psychiatrists.

From this issue we start a new rubric in the journal – Discussion – where different views on the same problem are presented. We publish two articles on the gender identity issue in relation to the fundamental changes made in ICD-11 depathologizing transgender identities. A detailed review of the transgender concepts that preceded the removal of gender identity from the mental disorders chapter is presented in one article, while another article focuses on the problem of high mental health comorbidity prevalence in transgender people that may require close attention by mental health professionals.

Another new rubric in the journal is named Historical Perspective. We plan to publish keynote papers of the past that influenced progress in psychiatry, accompanied by commentaries by contemporary professionals, or papers by contemporary authors that illuminate the historical background of the concepts that are still developed or discussed in current times. In this issue, we publish an article about the evolution of approaches to schizophrenia diagnostics from Kraepelin to the present.

A commentary on the perspectives of ICD-11 implementation in Russia is made by Professor Valery Krasnov who was a principal in the ICD-11 field studies in Russia.

Our traditional rubric - Special Articles - on the organization of community mental care by countries, is also continued in this issue. The experience of Qatar, Serbia and Italy is shared by distinguished experts from these regions.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue and that the topics raised can provoke a discussion in the professional community. I welcome your views and comments in the Letters to the Editor.

George Kostyuk,

Editor-in-Chief, Consortium Psychiatricum
