The Concept of schizophrenia. An illness like schizophrenia has been variously described over the years. Diagnosing schizophrenia.
A Review of Schizophrenia by Dr B Green, Hon. Senior Lecturer, University of Liverpool, UK ECT as an Antipsychotic
Schizophrenia is often a chronic relapsing psychotic disorder that primarily affects thought and behaviour. It can be well-controlled with antipsychotic drugs, (sometimes called neuroleptics). Treatment Resistant Schizophrenia The Neurodevelopmental Hypothesis of Schizophrenia Holtam Benzodiazepines in Schizophrenia The Aetiology of Schizophrenia Thomas
Learning Points
  • Schizophrenia mainly affects thought and behaviour, as opposed to affect. It is often a chronic disorder in that there are multiple acute episodes and between these residual effects. The diagnosis of schizophrenia is usually made with the help of a longitudinal view of the patient i.e. the form of the illness is as important as the content of the illness in making a diagnosis.
Clinical Features
Concepts of what schizophrenia actually is change with time. Different names and different criteria have been used to make the diagnosis at different times. This may be because the disease itself changes with time, or because we are actually analysing a phenomenon with several different causes that all present a common picture i.e. of disturbances of thought and behaviour. Prior to this century patients with General Paralysis of the Insane (GPI) caused by Treponema pallidum were classed in with schizophrenic-like patients. It may be that what we term schizophrenia today is a heterogenous disease with different causes.

47. Pasadena Villa - Orlando
A unique residential treatment facility for adults suffering from chronic mental illness. Specializes in residential services for schizophrenia and Asperger's Syndrome.

Services Resident Guide About Us ... Resources Pasadena Villa, located in Orlando, Florida, is a premier residential treatment facility for adults and young adults with mental illness, and those with co-existing psychiatric and substance abuse issues. Pasadena Villa provides a comprehensive program in a very comfortable and therapeutic environment complimented by many amenities. Pasadena Villa implements a truly unique social integration model as the key component of treatment. No matter what diagnoses our residents have upon coming to our facility, they all share similar impairments and deficits in social functioning. It is our belief that these deficits result in inappropriate and unacceptable social behaviors, which lead to increased stress and anxiety, often exacerbating symptoms. We believe that the best way to accurately identify social strengths and deficits is to immerse our residents into a wide variety of social situations, observe their behaviors, and develop treatment goals around individually specific issues. Our residents engage in traditional individual and group therapies, but

GENETICS OF schizophrenia AND AFFECTIVE DISORDER AN OVERLAP. Schizoaffective disorder tends to fall, obviously, between schizophrenia and affective disorder.

First Published February 1997
Shashjit Lal Varma , MBBS, MD, PhD, Consultant Psychiatrist, Grampians Psychiatric Services, Ballarat Base Hospital, PO Box - 577, Ballarat 3353, Victoria, Australia Introduction Numerous studies have established the familial aggregation of schizophrenia and that familial factors that predispose to schizophrenia also predispose to other schizophrenia related disorders. Kraepelin proposed that schizophrenia and manic-depressive psychosis were two distinct disorders but since then with abundance of literature on this subject pouring in, the theory is being challenged quite frequently. The number of studies which support the Kraepelinian view of psychosis exceed those which do not. The proponents of continuum theory propose a continuum from unipolar to bipolar disorder to schizoaffective psychosis and right up to schizophrenia. Another hypothesis proposed is that schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder are two distinct entities and that unipolar and schizoaffective disorders are expressed in the relatives of patients in both the categories (Gershon et al, 1988). Family Studies Rudin (1916) reported that although the risk for schizophrenia for an individual was high (6.2%) if they had a close relative with schizophrenia, it was higher if the ill relative had a non-schizophrenic (mostly affective) psychosis (8.2%) or alcoholism (7.8%). He also found almost equal numbers of relatives with affective disorder and relatives with schizophrenia in the families of his schizophrenic probands. On the other hand, among the psychotic relatives of Odegaard's (1972) manic depressive probands, 19% were diagnosed as schizophrenic, indicating that the co-occurrence may run in both directions.

During the past thirty years, research into schizophrenia has focused mainly on the dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia. Drawbacks of the dopamine hypothesis, however, arise from the observation that dopamine antagonists seem to be significant only for positive symptoms of schizophrenia. There is compelling evidence from recent studies of neurochemical pathology, functional imaging, clinical and experimental pharmacology, and the study of model psychoses that schizophrenic symptoms might also be related to a glutamatergic and/or serotonergic neurotransmitter dysbalance (glutamate and serotonin hypotheses of schizophrenia).

50. Schizophrenia In Children #49 - AACAP Facts For Families
schizophrenia is a medical illness that causes strange thinking, strange feelings, and unusual behavior. schizophrenia IN CHILDREN. No. 49, (12/00).
S CHIZOPHRENIA IN C HILDREN No. 49 Schizophrenia is a medical illness that causes strange thinking, strange feelings, and unusual behavior. It is an uncommon psychiatric illness in children and is hard to recognize in its early phases. The behavior of children and adolescents with schizophrenia may differ from that of adults with this illness. Child and adolescent psychiatrists look for several of the following early warning signs in youngsters with schizophrenia:
  • seeing things and hearing voices which are not real (hallucinations),
  • odd and eccentric behavior, and/or speech,
  • unusual or bizarre thoughts and ideas,
  • confusing television and dreams from reality,
  • confused thinking,
  • extreme moodiness,
  • ideas that people are "out to get them," or talking about them,
  • behaving like a younger child,
  • severe anxiety and fearfulness,
  • confusing television and dreams with reality,
  • difficulty relating to peers, and keeping friends.
  • withdrawn and increased isolation,
  • decline in personal hygiene
The behavior of children with schizophrenia may change slowly over time. For example, children who used to enjoy relationships with others may start to become more shy or withdrawn and seem to be in their own world. Sometimes youngsters will begin talking about strange fears and ideas. They may start to cling to parents or say things which do not make much sense. These early problems may first be noticed by the child's school teachers.

S CHIZOPHRENIA A psychotic disorder characterized by severe problems with a person’s thoughts, feelings, behavior, and use of words and language. Psychotic symptoms often include delusions and/or hallucinations. These delusions in schizophrenia are often paranoid and persecutory in nature. Hallucinations are usually auditory and may include hearing voices speaking in the third person, as well as to each other, commenting on the patient's deeds and actions. Schizophrenia does not mean "split personality." Most people develop schizophrenia before 30 years of age with some having their first episode in the teenage years.

57. Vocational Rehabilitation In Schizophrenia
Findings and recommendations of a 1995 research study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health that investigates value of paid employment versus traditional placements in sheltered workshops.
Vocational Rehabilitation in Schizophrenia By Anthony F. Lehman
Schizophrenia Bulletin, Vol 21, No. 4, 1995
National Institute of Mental Health
Schizophrenia exacts a heavy toll on a person's capacity to work, and a variety of vocational rehabilitation interventions have been developed over the past few decades to enhance the vocational capacities of persons with this disorder. The research literature on outcomes of vocational rehabilitation during the era of deinstitutionalization for persons with schizophrenia is reviewed. Most vocational rehabilitation programs have a positive influence on work-related activities, but most have failed to show substantial and enduring impacts on independent, competitive employment. Recent advances in supported employment suggest that vocational rehabilitation offers greater promise than do transitional and sheltered employment approaches. Vocational rehabilitation intervention may also exert positive influences on such clinical outcomes as medication compliance, symptom reduction, and relapse. Schizophrenia Bulletin Vocational rehabilitation has assumed increasing importance as part of the array of services available for persons with schizophrenia. Work not only provides financial remuneration but is a normalizing experience, allowing individuals to participate in society, and may promote self-esteem and quality of life. Furthermore, the vast majority of persons with severe mental illnesses identify paid employment as one of their goals (Rogers et al. 1991). Despite this, rates of competitive employment for persons with schizophrenia remain dismally low below 25 percent (Anthony et al. 1978).

The Ness Foundation
The Ness Foundation (previously The Highland Psychiatric Research Foundation HPRF) is a charitable organisation, formed in 1998 from an internationally recognised research group and in 1999 became an associate institute of the UHI Millennium Institute. The Ness Foundation's mission:
  • To improve the quality of life of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders and other related conditions, by conducting research to discover safer, more effective diagnostics and treatments. To break down the stigma that surrounds such conditions, which is frequently more disabling than the illness itself, through the involvement of patients and caregivers and the wide dissemination of its research findings.
The conditions that our research is focused on include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism spectrum disorder, dyspraxia, dyslexia, depression and ADHD. Our principal area of research involves the role of lipids in these disorders.
