New training method to improve care for schizophrenia patients
Today’s care provision for schizophrenia patients pays too little attention to patients’ sense of meaning and coping with loss. Care providers mainly concentrate on the medical and psychiatric aspects of the disorder. Their lack of understanding for the patients’ existential suffering and associated questions about life and death makes the patients feel that they are not being heard. This in turn leads to a sense of helplessness among both care providers and patients. Considerable improvements can be made if the treatment methods are adapted.
