QUESTION 6
Schizophrenia and Violence Article CRITCAL ANAYSIS
THESIS The authors make very clear the controversies and restrictions in
the findings on violence in schizophrenic patients. Because of this unclear
estimate on how many, what type, and differences among cultures, it is VERY
UNCLEAR to make a generalized statement towards schizophrenia as a
whole, but by careful analysis of each case on its own this article was
sufficient enough in providing proper explanation for this ambiguity in their
findings.
SUMMARY OF ARTICLE:
- Type of violence varies as symptomatology and severity of disease does.
differences among violence norms are also different across cultures
violence depends on psychopathology characteristics
two types of violence with differing types of schizophrenics
oPARANOID = directed at specific person, well planned, and
often dangeours
oDISORGANIZED SCHIZO = less focused violence and often less
dangerous.
Command hallucinations play a small role in directing violence
TIME AT WHICH VIOLENCE OCCURS = important because
differentiating between when violence occurred during course of illness
will help determine which subgroups of schizophrenia are more likely
to be violent.
USUALLY
oAcutely psychotic, recently admitted, patients
oViolence is related to CONCEPTUAL DISORGANIZATION,
HALLUCINATIONS + UNUSUAL THOUGHT CONTENT.
5 STUDIES FOUND PARANOID MORE VIOLENT THAN NON
PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENICS
o2 STUDIES REPORTED TO OPPOSITE
o1 STUDY FOUND NO DIFFERENCE IN VIOLENCE
THIS STILL PROVES PARANOID ARE WORSE BC OF
HOW THE STUDIES WERE CONDUCTED
Each study basically made a bias, the study that
focused on paranoid schizos focused on acute
patients where non-paranoid focused on chronic in
patients
This makes the 2 studies that reported the opposite
not very reliable bc they didn't focus on the right
