Protocol - Family History - Psychosis

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The Family Interview for Genetic Studies (FIGS) is a tool used by a trained interviewer to collect information about biological relatives of the subject who has a mental disorder. The interview is conducted with the relatives themselves and not through the subject. There are three parts to the FIGS. The General Screening Questions gather general information about all known relatives. The Face Sheet is completed for each of the first-degree relatives and any affected relatives. This abbreviated version of the FIGS includes only a Symptom Checklist for psychosis.

Specific Instructions:

For a more detailed interview guide, one that includes symptom checklists for all mental disorders, the Early Psychosis Working Group recommends using the FIGS-Full Version (Family History - Multiple Mental Disorders protocol). A baseline assessment of this measure is an interview of a parent and the ill person. The optimal approach is to directly interview all available biological family members, at least out to second-degree relatives. It is important to gather this information from relatives because it can be difficult to rely on information obtained directly from the ill person. If not all relatives can be directly interviewed, one relative may be interviewed about all others.

Protocol:

GO FIGS Pedigree Drawing Instructions

v. 3.21.12

Begin with the FIGS General Screening Questions (p. 1), Step 1:

Let’s go over your family tree.

Have the pedigree form ready. Place in front of participant, and once constructed, keep it in front of participant throughout interview.

Pedigree Drawing.

1. In the middle of the page, draw a symbol for the participant (circle for female, square for males). This is you. (Write participant’s name under the symbol.)

2. If participant:

    a. Is only child: You told me that you have no brothers and sisters, is that correct? (If yes, above the participant’s symbol, draw a square for dad on the left, a circle for mom on the right, connect with line, and draw another line directly down to participant’s symbol. Proceed with instruction #3 below.)

    b. Has siblings. You told me that you had (insert number) siblings: (insert number) brothers and (insert number) sisters. Is that correct? (If yes, proceed; if not, correct.) Do they all have the same mother and father as you?

        i. YES (same biological parents): Determine where in birth order participant falls (First, second, third and so on). Above the participant’s symbol, draw a square for dad on the left, a circle for mom on the right, connect with line, and draw another line downward. From left to right, add symbols for the other full siblings from oldest (firstborn) to youngest around the proband. Write each sibling’s name underneath his/her symbol.

        ii. NO: "For this family tree, I am going to ask you only about full biological siblings: your brothers/sisters who have the same mom AND dad as you." For FULL sibs only, determine where in birth order participant falls (First, second, third and so on). From left to right, add symbols for the other full siblings from oldest (firstborn) to youngest around the proband. Write each sibling’s name underneath his/her symbol.

3. Do you have any children?

    a. YES: Draw a horizontal line from the participant to a partner, and drop down a line (or set of lines) to depict children. Write each child’s name underneath his/her symbol. Go to FIGS screener.

    b. NO: Go to FIGS screener.

Family Interview for Genetic Studies (FIGS)-Abbreviated Version

Availability:

Publicly available

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal psychiatric interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

Equipment Needs

The PhenX Working Group acknowledges these questions can be administered in a computerized or noncomputerized format (i.e., paper-and-pencil instrument). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer/handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Requirements
Requirement CategoryRequired
Major equipment No
Specialized training No
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection No
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual Yes
Mode of Administration

Interviewer-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Adult

Participants:

Adults, ages 18 years and older

Selection Rationale

The use of the Family Interview for Genetic Studies (FIGS) has made it possible to advance in the performance of family studies for research in genetic psychiatry. The questionnaire is reliable and valid for gathering diagnostic information about relatives of a subject.
