Medications Related to Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders

 

Schizophrenia is one of the most commonly misunderstood psychological disorders. According to the Center for Disease Control, “Worldwide prevalence estimates range between 0.5% and 1%.” In fact, more than two million Americans live with the illness in a given year. Schizophrenia affects men and women with equal frequency, and most commonly appears in individuals during their late teens or early twenties. A hallmark of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders is impairment in reality testing, i.e., difficulty distinguishing true from false perceptions. In general, you can think of positive symptoms as being phenomena that are added, and negative symptoms/signs as phenomena subtracted from a healthy individual. This is a time of hope for people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders and their families. Research is gradually leading to newer, more effective medications, as well as helping to unravel the complex causes of the disorder. The outlook for people with schizophrenia has improved over the last 25 years. Although there is no cure yet, it is important to remember that many people with the illness improve enough to lead independent, satisfying lives. The main goal of this course is to provide you with the information and current research you need to better understand how to treat schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders. To facilitate your learning experience, you will be guided through a series of interactive vignettes and descriptive examples. This training is appropriate for healthcare staff, as well as anyone who has interactions with individuals with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders.
