Training Title:
Schizophrenia: The Revolution in Treatment Part 3

Clock Hours: 1

After listening to and/or reading this interview, participants should be able to • Appreciate that therapists can be most helpful to families coming for help with a troubled child by first acknowledging that the whole family is stressed by the situation. • Recognize that situation of families of schizophrenic patients is one of constant in crisis. • Understand that the therapist's responsibility to families coming for help with a troubled child is primarily to provide resources to help with the families' practical problems. • Appreciate the changing needs of families over the course of their schizophrenic child's life. • Appreciate that the parents' grieving process about a mentally ill child's prospects in life occurs in every stage of the child's life.

More than two million people in the United States have a diagnosis of schizophrenia. For the last half century, until even now, the treatment for most has consisted mainly of strong doses of antipsychotic drugs that blunt hallucinations and delusions but come with significant and unpleasant side effects. Now, there has been remarkable research leading to what will be a revolution in understanding and treating this debilitating mental illness. In part three of this three part program we hear from the mother of a schizophrenic child who tells us very directly what the families of these patients need -- and don't receive.
