Schizophrenia is a specific psychiatric disorder that is traditionnally defined by the existence of:
- a dissociative syndrom (a disorganisation of the language, of the affects and of the behavior)
- a delusional syndrom (delusions such as hearing voices, imagining things that are not real, etc.)
Schizophrenia often begins in late adolescence or early adulthood. The illness affects how the patient perceives the world, thinks and behave. The implication of the family is, most of the time, decisive in the evolution of the illness.
One usually says that there are as many different forms schizophrenia as individuals who suffer from it.
For a professional, it really matters to spend time understanding the particular history of each patient in order to help them to get better.
Most of the time, the psychotherapy has to be complemented by medical prescriptions made by the psychiatrist.
