63. Schizophrenia In Children #49 - AACAP Facts For Families
schizophrenia is a medical illness that causes strange thinking, strange feelings,and unusual behavior. It is an uncommon psychiatric illness in children
S CHIZOPHRENIA IN C HILDREN No. 49 Schizophrenia is a medical illness that causes strange thinking, strange feelings, and unusual behavior. It is an uncommon psychiatric illness in children and is hard to recognize in its early phases. The behavior of children and adolescents with schizophrenia may differ from that of adults with this illness. Child and adolescent psychiatrists look for several of the following early warning signs in youngsters with schizophrenia:
  • seeing things and hearing voices which are not real (hallucinations),
  • odd and eccentric behavior, and/or speech,
  • unusual or bizarre thoughts and ideas,
  • confusing television and dreams from reality,
  • confused thinking,
  • extreme moodiness,
  • ideas that people are "out to get them," or talking about them,
  • behaving like a younger child,
  • severe anxiety and fearfulness,
  • confusing television and dreams with reality,
  • difficulty relating to peers, and keeping friends.
  • withdrawn and increased isolation,
  • decline in personal hygiene
The behavior of children with schizophrenia may change slowly over time. For example, children who used to enjoy relationships with others may start to become more shy or withdrawn and seem to be in their own world. Sometimes youngsters will begin talking about strange fears and ideas. They may start to cling to parents or say things which do not make much sense. These early problems may first be noticed by the child's school teachers.

64. Vocational Rehabilitation In Schizophrenia
Findings and recommendations of a 1995 research study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health that investigates value of paid employment versus traditional placements in sheltered workshops.
Vocational Rehabilitation in Schizophrenia
By Anthony F. Lehman
Schizophrenia Bulletin, Vol 21, No. 4, 1995
National Institute of Mental Health
Schizophrenia exacts a heavy toll on a person's capacity to work, and a variety of vocational rehabilitation interventions have been developed over the past few decades to enhance the vocational capacities of persons with this disorder. The research literature on outcomes of vocational rehabilitation during the era of deinstitutionalization for persons with schizophrenia is reviewed. Most vocational rehabilitation programs have a positive influence on work-related activities, but most have failed to show substantial and enduring impacts on independent, competitive employment. Recent advances in supported employment suggest that vocational rehabilitation offers greater promise than do transitional and sheltered employment approaches. Vocational rehabilitation intervention may also exert positive influences on such clinical outcomes as medication compliance, symptom reduction, and relapse. Schizophrenia Bulletin Vocational rehabilitation has assumed increasing importance as part of the array of services available for persons with schizophrenia. Work not only provides financial remuneration but is a normalizing experience, allowing individuals to participate in society, and may promote self-esteem and quality of life. Furthermore, the vast majority of persons with severe mental illnesses identify paid employment as one of their goals (Rogers et al. 1991). Despite this, rates of competitive employment for persons with schizophrenia remain dismally low below 25 percent (Anthony et al. 1978).

Recent Developments in Atypical Antipsychotic Medications
Medications help in relieving the symptoms of Schizophrenia, help the individual feel better, and can delay or prevent a relapse. The goal of medication therapy is to use the least amount of medication possible to manage the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia effectively, as well as to minimize unwanted side effects. Drug treatment is usually continuous, as relapse of symptoms is common when medication is discontinued. Schizophrenia is now being treated with new medications that are commonly called "atypical antipsychotics." These drugs have less severe side effects than the former generation of drugs used to treat this debilitating disease. Antipsychotics or neuroleptic drugs (as they're sometimes called) help relieve the positive symptoms of schizophrenia by helping to correct an imbalance in the chemicals that enable brain cells to communicate with each other. As with drug treatments for other physical illnesses, many patients with severe mental illnesses may need to try several different antipsychotic medications before they find the one, or the combination of medications, that works best for them. Conventional Antipsychotics Conventional Antipsychotics were introduced in the 1950's and all had similar ability to relieve the positive symptoms of schizophrenia. Most of these older "conventional" antipsychotics differed in the side effects they produced. These conventional antipsychotics include

Gene Discovery Could Aid Schizophrenia Treatment
Australian scientists say the discovery of a new gene could significantly improve the treatment of patients with schizophrenia.
Doctors have found a gene which makes patients more susceptible to the side-effects of medication. Many patients do not like to take the anti-psychotic drugs prescribed for schizophrenia because of severe side-effects, including depression, sexual problems and osteoporosis.
"It is a fundamentally important [discovery] because the way we've used medications until now has been trial and error," Professor Ross Young from Queensland University of Technology said. Professor Young and Professor Bruce Lawford from the Royal Brisbane Hospital found patients with the gene had nearly twice the level of a particular hormone when taking their medications. Doctors say discovering the gene means they will be able to do a blood test or DNA swab and predict who will do better on certain medications. "By screening for genetic markers we can give lower doses of medication or give ones that have less side effects," Professor Young said.

Do the shelves have room for one more bonkers theory about how apes became human? You know the story: for millions of years we were big-brained but dull-witted hominids. Then, about 100,000 years ago, our brains were touched as if by a burning finger and we lit up with self-consciousness and creativity. We immediately started painting caves and worshipping gods, and became rational. The question is: what could have caused this abrupt change? Well, here is a suggestion to wet your socks: the first humans were schizophrenic. A small band of smart apes lived by a lakeshore in east Africa on a diet rich in fats, which allowed their brains to grow very large. Then a genetic defect in fat metabolism led to one child having faulty brain connections; the signalling became slightly variable. The result was a brain prone to schizophrenia, psychopathy and mania, but also creativity, curiosity and ambition. As David Horrobin imagines it, this child with "a divine discontent with the way things were" spawned a family of proto-Medicis, brilliant and ruthless, who slaughtered their neighbours and spread out to rule the world.

Voices of an Illness is a radio documentary series which has provided millions with an extraordinary window on serious mental illness since the series premiere in 1992. The National Institute of Mental Health hailed the series as having "truly set new standards of creativity and scientific accuracy in broadcast journalism about mental illness." The Voices of an Illness series has been honored with 23 major broadcast journalism and mental health awards, including the George Foster Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting, television and radio’s highest honor. The series also received top honors from the National Institute of Mental Health, the American Psychiatric Association, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, the National Mental Health Association, the National Easter Seal Society and the American Medical Writers Association. This three-part series was created by LCM founder and president Bill Lichtenstein as a way of relating his own experience following his diagnosis with, and recovery from, manic depression.

Schizophrenia March 2002 WHAT IS SCHIZOPHRENIA? The term schizophrenia was first used in 1911 by Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist, to categorize patients whose thought processes and emotional responses seemed disconnected. The term schizophrenia literally means split mind; however, many people still believe incorrectly that the condition causes a split personality (which is an uncommon problem involving dissociation).
Schizophrenia is now used to describe a cluster of symptoms that typically includes the following:
  • Delusions.
  • Hallucinations.
  • Disordered thinking.
  • Emotional unresponsiveness.
Because symptoms of schizophrenia arise from various physical processes and respond differently to treatments, some experts recommend classifying the disease based on the presence of the following symptom groups:
  • Negative symptoms (including apathy and social withdrawal).
  • Psychotic symptoms.
  • Disordered thinking. (Some experts group psychotic and disordered thinking in a single category called positive symptoms.)
The disease is complicated by the fact that although a schizophrenic patient may have more than one symptom, he or she rarely has all of them. Symptoms also often go into remission. As the mechanisms in the brain that lead to schizophrenia are being discovered, researchers are attempting to define more accurate ways of describing the disease as it relates to the biologic processes that cause them.
