The project uses a longitudinal, qualitative method to examine factors and dynamics influencing cannabis use in persons with psychosis disorders with particular focus on person-environment interactions. The research uses a systems theoretical and ecologically informed theoretical framework and discusses fundamental assumptions in relation to psychiatric theory and practice in the dual diagnosis field (co-occurring mental disorders and substance use).
