2 SCHIZOPHRENIA SPECTRUM Schizophrenia Spectrum Outline i. Abstract ii. Introduction of Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorder a. Schizophrenia b. Schizophreniform Disorder c. Schizoaffective Disorder d. Delusional Disorder e. Brief Psychotic Disorder f. Psychotic Disorder Due to Another Medical Condition g. Unspecified Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorder iii. Overview of Diagnosis category in DSM-V a. Onset i. Childhood Diagnosis 1. “Although schizophrenia is rare in childhood (Fleischhaker et al., 2005), there are reports of EOS as young as 7 years of age” (Gallagher & Jones, 2017, p. 492). 2. “Although studies of EOS are not common (Puig et al., 2012), almost every one of those studies clearly connect EOS with various forms of severe impairment” (Gallagher & Jones, 2017, p. 492). 3. Socioeconomic status (SES) alone does not increase the likelihood of Early Onset Schizophrenia (EOS) but it somehow magnifies the deleterious effect of EOS on negative symptoms. This is only true for those of low SES of origin. For the nonpoor, the effect is the opposite. (Gallagher & Jones, 2017, p. 495). ii. Late Adolescence, Early Adulthood 1. “The typical time frame for the initial episode of schizophrenia is during late adolescence or early adulthood” (Gallagher & Jones, 2017, p. 492). 2. “From that point, it is characterized as following ‘a relapsing course for life’” (Gallagher & Jones, 2017, p. 492). 3. “The onset of symptoms typically occurs in adolescence and young adulthood, with a worldwide estimate of its lifetime prevalence and incidence of 1.4–4.6 and 0.16–0.42 per 1,000 persons annually, respectively (Chien and Yip, 2013, pp. 1311-1312). b. Key Features i. Delusions 1. “Fixed beliefs that are not amenable to change in light of conflicting evidence” (APA, 2013, p. 87). 2. “Delusions are deemed bizarre if they are clearly implausible and not understandable to same-culture peers and do not derive from ordinary life experiences” (APA, 2013, p. 87). ii. Hallucinations
3 SCHIZOPHRENIA SPECTRUM 1. “Perception-like experiences that occur without an external stimulus” (APA, 2013, p. 87). 2. “Auditory hallucinations are usually experienced as voices, whether familiar or unfamiliar, that are perceived as distinct from the individual’s own thoughts” (APA, 2013, p. 87). 3. Not only a diagnostic criterion for Schizophrenia and Other psychotic disorders“It is widely recognized that AH can accompany virtually all psychiatric disorders, including borderline personality disorder and dissociative identity disorder (40%), unipolar depression and bipolar disorder (45%), anxiety disorders (14%), autism (6%), and posttraumatic stress disorder (15%)” (Waters, Blom, Jardri, Hugdahl, and Sommer, 2018, p. 531).
