  2. Features of Schizophrenia • Prevalence in U.S. is 1.1%. • Average onset is late teens to early twenties, but can be as late as mid-fifties • Affects cognitive, emotional, and behavioralfunction • 30% to 40% relapse rate in the first year

  3. Features of Schizophrenia - continued • Progression varies from one client to another • Exacerbations and remissions • Chronic but stable • Progressive deterioration

  4. Features of Schizophrenia - continued • DSM-IV-TR Diagnosis • Symptoms present at least 6 months • Active-phase symptoms present at least 1 month • Symptoms are defined as positive and negative

  5. Features of Schizophrenia - continued • Positive symptoms • Excess or distortion of normal functioning • Aberrant response • Negative symptoms • Deficit in functioning

  6. Features of Schizophrenia - continued • Positive Symptoms of Schizophrenia • Hallucination • Delusions • Disordered speech and behavior

  7. Features of Schizophrenia - continued • Negative Symptoms of Schizophrenia • Flat affect and apathy • Alogia • Avolition • Anhedonia

  8. Subtypes of Schizophrenia • Paranoid type • Disorganized type • Catatonic type • Undifferentiated type • Residual Type

  9. Subtypes of Schizophrenia - continued • Paranoid Type • Delusions • Persecutory and grandiose • Somatic or religious • Hallucinations • Delusions link with a hallucination

  10. Subtypes of Schizophrenia - continued Click here to view a video featuring Larry, who has been diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia.

  11. Subtypes of Schizophrenia - continued • Disorganized type • Disorganized speech, behavior, appearance • Flat or inappropriate affect • Fragmented hallucinations and delusions • Most severe form of schizophrenia

  12. Subtypes of Schizophrenia - continued • Catatonic type • Psychomotor retardation and stupor • Extreme psychomotor agitation • Waxy flexibility • Echolalia • Mutism • Echopraxia

  13. Subtypes of Schizophrenia - continued • Undifferentiated type • Active psychotic state • Lacks symptoms of other subtypes • Residual type • At least one episode of schizophrenia • No prominent positive symptoms • Negative symptoms present

  14. Other Psychotic Disorders • Schizophreniform disorder • Schizoaffective disorder • Delusional disorder • Brief psychotic disorder

  15. Causes of Schizophrenia • Biopsychosocial theories • Interrelated factors

  16. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Biologic theories • Psychological theories • Family theories • Humanistic-interactional theories

  17. Causes of Schizophrenia • Biologic Theory: Genetic • Only genetic predisposition for developing schizophrenia is inherited • 10% of first-degree relatives • 25%-39% of monozygotic twins

  18. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Biologic Theory: Brain Structure Abnormality • Differs from those with no symptoms • May be genetically based • Requires more study

  20. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Biologic Theory: Biochemical Theories • Dopamine hypothesis • Traditional antipsychotic medications are dopamine blockers • Dopamine blocker alleviate positive symptoms

  21. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Psychological theories • Information processing • Difficulty controlling the amount and type of information that is processed in the brain. • Attention and arousal • Hyper or hypo responsiveness to various situations

  22. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Psychological theories • Information processing • Deficient in automatic processing • Deficient in controlled or effortful processing • Attention and arousal • Hypo-, hyper-responses

  23. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Family Theories • Dysfunctional interaction not supported by research • Disordered family communication linked only with genetic predisposition • Family emotional tone influences course of schizophrenia • Expressed emotions theory (EE)

  24. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Humanistic-interactional theories integrate biological and psychosocial theories • Combine influences of: • Genetic predisposition or biologic vulnerability • Environmental stressors • Social support

  25. Causes of Schizophrenia - continued • Stress–Vulnerability Model • Stressors increase vulnerability • Cumulative effect of: • Genetic predisposition • Personal stressors • Familial factors • Environmental factors

  26. Influences on the Course of Schizophrenia • Social Pressures • Lack of social support • Financial problems • Stigma

  27. Influences on the Course of Schizophrenia - continued • Psychological pressures • Difficulty with problem-solving • Difficulty with interpreting reality • Difficulty coping • Problems with self-care • Unstable interpersonal relationships

  28. Nursing Implications • Assessment • Premorbid functioning • Content of thought • Form of thought • Perception • Sense of self • Delusions and perceptual disturbances • Hallucinations • Drug use

  29. Nursing Implications - continued • Nursing Diagnoses • Altered thought process • Social isolation • Risk for violence • Self-care deficits • Altered health maintenance • Ineffective family coping

  30. Nursing Implications:Supporting Families • Family needs vary with degree of illness and involvement in client’s care • Education • Financial support • Psychosocial support • Education • Advocacy

  31. Nursing Implications:Supporting Families - continued • Schizophrenia is a “family illness.” • Family members need to be involved. • Educate family about • Medication • Illness • Relapse prevention • Nurse assists family by • Identifying community agencies/groups for family members • Advocating for rights

  32. Measures to Prevent Relapse • Ensure client takes medication • Educate family about signs and symptoms of relapse • Client and family to participate in relapse prevention program

  33. Measures to PreventRelapse - continued • Relapse prevention programs work best when: • Psychosocial treatment and social skills training are combined with antipsychotic medication • Behavior patterns are monitored • Family members understand triggers

  34. Measures to PreventRelapse - continued • Relapse prevention programs provide education and support regarding: • Individual triggers, symptoms of relapse • Managing side effects of medications • Interventions to reduce or eliminate triggers • Strategies to facilitate early intervention • Cognitive therapy • Community resources

  35. Challenges to Adherence • Side effects • Level of symptomatology • Cognitive, motivational, financial, and cultural issues • Issues with caregivers • Insufficient medication teaching

  36. Increasing Adherence • Involve clients in treatment • Instruct client about reducing discomfort • Provide peer support • Provide reminders and positive feedback • Recognize accomplishments

  37. Personal Awareness • Identify personal feelings. • Recognize personal perceptions. • What behaviors do you expect to see? • How will you respond to these behaviors? • What is the meaning of the behaviors?

  38. Personal Awareness - continued • What defines “normal” behavior? • What are my fears associated with mental illness?
