Schizophrenia and Related Conditions: An Introduction (1 Day)

Course Overview



This one day course introduces delegates to the topic of Schizophrenia and related conditions.
The course will define the meaning of this diagnostic term and outline characteristic 'signs and symptoms' of Schizophrenia and other psychotic conditions - voices, visions and unusual beliefs. Causes of Schizophrenia will be explored from both medical and psycho-social perspectives. NICE recommended approaches to treatment will be highlighted and delegates will be encouraged to critique issues of availability, acceptability and choice of treatment from a service user's perspective.
The course will then consider good practice in the emotional and practical support of people living with Schizophrenia and related conditions. Delegates will be introduced to growing evidence supporting the use of psychological and social approaches to Schizophrenia that can promote engagement, self-care and recovery from psychosis.
