Schizophrenia disorder of thinking- “loss of reasoning” – one personality that is dissociated from reality- all the other disorders we’ve learned about have been mood disorders – has nothing to do with a duality of personality (that’s dissociative personality disorder) o positive symptoms - takes energy to have these delusions of grandeur (try to rationalize why you’re hearing voices) hallucinations o negative symptoms- don’t require energy. Loss of interaction with the outside world (withdrawn). Catatonia could be considered a negative symptom “waxy catatonia” can be pushed into a position and moved to be in a different position afterwards harder to treat- they seem like they’re the baseline for the symptoms of schizophrenia o things you must have in order to be classified as schizophrenic (this is just category A): delusions/prominent hallucinations/incoherence (word salad)/catatonia/flat affect (unemotional)/inappropriate affect neuroleptics
