Abstract

I disturbi mentali sono stati tradizionalmente concepiti come variabili latenti, che hanno un impatto sulla sintomatologia osservabile. Approcci alternativi proposti più recentemente invece concepiscono i disturbi mentali come sistemi di sintomi che si rinforzano vicendevolmente. Tali approcci adottano modelli di tipo network per analizzare la struttura delle interazioni tra sintomi. Questo articolo fornisce un’introduzione e una panoramica dell’approccio network alla psicopatologia sviluppatosi negli ultimi anni.
Mental disorders have traditionally been conceptualized as latent variables, which impact observable symptomatology. Recent alternative approaches, however, view mental disorders as systems of mutually reinforcing symptoms, and utilize network models to analyze the structure of these symptom-symptom interactions. This paper gives an introduction to and overview of the network approach to psychopathology, as it has developed over the past years.
