Bianca Andreica-Sandica

Losing hopes and dreams regarding a person diagnosed with schizophrenia-a first psychotic episode, emotional tribulation, going between remission and relapse, the risk of self-inflected wounds and of  aggressiveness against people around, are experiences which families have to face. Intrinsic family characteristics determine the way family members react to illness, with clear repercussions on both the family and the evolution of first - episode psychosis. We shall next present the various family characteristics that might influence the evolution of a psychotic episode, as well as the results of some studies that show the efficiency of family interventions in the evolution of a first psychotic episode in schizophrenia.
