Psychologiczna analiza schizofrenii, przeprowadzona na podstawie DSM-IV
Rocznik: 1977 Tom: 3 Numer: 3
Schizophrenia diagnosis criteria dictate that at some stage of the consciousness and behaviour men have delusions, hallucinations or certain characteristic disturbances in affect and the form of thought. However, the onset, time course, and nature of the disturbances in emotion, personality, cognition and motor activity exhibited by people with schizophrenia vary widely. It is possible that no single feature is shared by all schizophrenics. E.g., in the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), published in May 1994, the negative symptoms of schizophrenia are very important, because new antipsychotic drugs – clozapine and risperidone – have shown efficacy at treating these symptoms. A psychological analysis of schizophrenia emphasizes the important part of family therapy in the psychotherapy of schizophrenia.
