Stella is a 44 year old female who reports that she has periods of time she cannot remember what she has done. She reports that after one such period she received a telephone call from a man who claimed to have met her in a bar where she was “the life of the party.” She had also told the man her name was Starlight. Stella thinks that this is odd because she doesn’t drink and she’s shy. However, the man had her correct phone number and gave an accurate physical description of her.

What approach of therapy would T. Szasz or R.D. Lang recommend for a patient diagnosed with schizophrenia?


T. Szasz:

Szasz argued that psychiatric patients are not ill, but rather individuals with unconventional thoughts and behavior that make society uncomfortable. He argues that society unjustly seeks to control them by classifying their behavior as an illness and forcibly treating them as a method of social control. According to this view, "schizophrenia" does not actually exist but is merely a form of social construction, created by society's concept of what constitutes normality and abnormality. He believes that treatment should be conducted between consenting adults, rather than imposed upon anyone against his or her will

R.D. Laing:

He argued that the symptoms of what is called mental illness are comprehensible reactions to impossible demands that society and particularly family life places on some sensitive individuals. He valued the content of psychotic experience as worthy of interpretation, rather than considering it simply as a secondary but essentially meaningless marker of underlying psychological or neurological distress. Laing described eleven case studies of people diagnosed with schizophrenia and argued that the content of their actions and statements was meaningful and logical in the context of their family and life situations.
