1. I like how you mentioned how people can have an attitude towards these people because they have the inability to do things like others. This is true because people with this disorder might not be able to do normal things we do everyday. When someone cant do these normal things, society looks at them in a weird way. Society doesn’t know how to accept these kind of people in their life yet because they do not understand what it is. I like your idea about including them in everyday activities so they do not feel left out. What can you do to help others understand a little more about this disease and to show them these people are not dangerous?
2. Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder in which personal, social, and occupational functioning deteriorate as a result of unusual perceptions, odd thoughts, disturbed emotions, and motor abnormalities. Years ago it e the label was at times assigned to anyone who acted unpredictably or strangely (Comer, 2020). The symptoms can be grouped into three categories: positive symptoms Below (excesses of thought, emotion, and behavior), negative symptoms (deficits of thought, emotion, and behavior), and psychomotor symptoms (unusual movements or gestures). Hallucinations are another huge thing that a person with schizophrenia deals with which are the experiencing of sights, sounds, smells, and other perceptions that occur in the absence of external stimuli. These can happen for a number of reasons like constant migraines to deprivation. This can normally begin noticeable between the person’s late teens and mid- thirties. Along with the impulse control and speech issues, this disorder can make one feel lost. Behind years of research on studying this disorder, this is mainly a biological disorder, and many people will see this disorder and label the people as “Crazy” when it can be implemented by a dysfunctional brain circuit. This disorder should be taken more seriously by people, especially when someone suffering from it can put themselves or others in danger. The most important thing is paying attention to someones triggers.
3. Many people hold negative attitudes toward people with schizophrenia. They are seen as people who fail to conform to normal behaviors. People with schizophrenia display a decrease in speech and speech content, display less anger, sadness, joy, no facial expression, and may take extreme forms. With 85-85 percent of people with schizophrenia, they are not dangerous, these people are simply just misunderstood. However, bias exists because most people do not understand schizophrenia. They have watched the movies with people being told to kill someone by the voices in their head and dramatic plots like this. Additionally, when people call the people with this disorder schizophrenic and treat them like they are dangerous, people tend to take on more of the disorder in reaction to that. In order to avoid or reduce the bias that exists, the public needs to understand the disorder by educating themselves. Also, there should be more public information available (Comer, 2018).
4. This theory explains in good detail about how someone can get schizophrenia. If someone has damage to their brain or doesn’t get enough oxygen to their brain, they can eventually develop this disorder. Do you think it is a high chance of someone developing this disorder from some of these symptoms or is this jsut one disorder that can happen? Would this disorder go more with a biological view or psychological view?
5. Some of these theorists say the stress of poverty is a cause for schizophrenia. It also is said by the downward drift theory that schizophrenia causes individuals to go down the ladder from high to low socioeconomic level or to stay on lower level (Comer, 2018). Another theory is that there is a diathesis-stress relationship, this is about individuals who have a biological predisposition will develop if certain stress or events also happen (Comer, 2018). It seems that family of people with schizophrenia are at a big risk for developing this disorder. The environment has an effect on the family members who may be related to someone with this disorder. Psychodynamic theorists agree with the biological predisposition way of thinking (Comer, 2018). Cognitive-behavioral theorists have two ways of explaining things with schizophrenia, one with behaviors and operant conditioning. The other way is about the weird thoughts and misinterpretations for the explanation (Comer, 2018). Sociocultural theorists say culture, social, and dysfunction of the family plays their parts in this disorder. I think the theory about having a biological predisposition and then certain events or things that cause stress is the best explanation. This is because a lot of things are genetic to start and what happens in life can have an effect on individual.
6. The biological theory has the most research to back it up (Comer, 2018). This theory believes that certain genes play a part in schizophrenia and certain parts of the brain where parts of the brain or over or under active. Along with genes researchers believe that poor nutrition and fetal development also play a part. Psychodynamic views suggest that cold and unnurturing parents can help set schizophrenia in motion (Comer, 2018). Frued stresses the importance of development throughout each stage in his psychodynamic view. Cognitive perspective explains schizophrenia through operant conditioning and misinterpretation. People stop paying attention to relevant cues and pay attention to irrelevant cues which causes their responses to be bizarre and continue due to reward of attention (Comer, 2018). Sociocultural views of schizophrenia explain why it different between ethnic and racial groups. It suggests that some racial groups have a higher percent living in poverty as well as how it differs in other countries (Comer, 2018). Developmental Psychopathology View agrees that genetics play a but also life stressors, family interactions, and other factors also play a role. I agree with the developmental psychopathology view because I do agree that genetics play a role, but I don’t think that it is solely genetics. I feel that there are many other factors involved too.
