Schizophrenia: Coping with Symptoms and Side Effects About the Author Kim T.

Coping with the trauma of schizophrenia in the family Tue, , When a loved one’s mental wellbeing breaks down, families suffer hugely often before diagnosis, writes MICHELLE.   Behavioral family management is designed to modify the social environment in which the patient lives by changing the attitudes, stress levels, and coping ability of the people in that environment.

Under the assumption that behavior is the product of environmental contingencies, two researchers, Teodoro Ayllon and Nathan Azrin (), studied chronically hospitalized patients at a state hospital. The patients had been in the hospital for many years and many had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and other severe forms of psychopathology.   Course and Outcome Effective intervention must consider the natural history and course of the pathol- ogy in question. While much is known about the course and outcomes of adult- onset schizophrenia, there is only limited data on the natural history of childhood- onset schizophrenia.
