Chapter 9: Schizophrenia 03/06/2016  Alogia  Anhedonia  Anticipatory pleasure  Asociality  Avolition  Blunted affect  Brief psychotic disorder:  Catatonia  Clinical high-risk study  Cognitive enhancement therapy (CET)  Consummatory pleasure  Delusional disorder  Delusions:  Dementia praecox  Disorganized behavior  Disorganized speech  Disorganized symptoms  Expressed emotion (EE):  Familial high-risk study  Grandiose delusions:  hallucinations  Ideas of reference:  Loos associations (derailment):  Negative symtoms  Positive symptoms:  Prefrontal cortex  Schizoaffective disorder  Schizophrenia  Schizophreniform disorder  Second-generation antipsychotic drugs  Social selection hypothesis  Social skills training  Sociogenic hypothesis o Schizophrenia symptoms are often described in three broad domains: positive, negative, and disorganization. o Delusions are found among people with other diagnoses, including bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder with psychotic features and delusional disorder o Those with schizophrenia appear to have a deficit in anticipatory pleasure but not consummatory pleasure o DSM5 requires that the symptoms last at least 6 months; must include 1 month of acute episode or active phase (presence of at least two of delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized behavior, and negative symptoms) o Schizophrenia has a genetic component o The first neurotransmitter to receive substantial research attention was dopamine o Dopamine Theory: theory that schizophrenia is related to excess activity of the NT dopamine  is based principally on the knowledge that drugs effective in treating schizophrenia reduce dopamine activity. o Other NTs – GABA, Glutamate o Postmortem studies of the brains of people with schizophrenia consistently reveal enlarged ventricles o Enlarged ventricles are not specific to schizophrenia, as they are evident in the CT scans of people with other disorders (bipolar with psychotic features) o Prefrontal cortex is important in schizophrenia o Additional research has found that people with schizophrenia have structural and functional abnormalities in the temporal cortex, including areas such as the temporal gyrus, hippocampus, amygdala, and anterior cingulate. o Chronic stress is associated with reductions in hippocampal volume o Possible cause of some observed brain abnormalities in schizophrenia is damage during gestation or birth o Higher rates of schizophrenia are found in lower socioeconomic status. o Ethnicity has a role in expressed emotion – different ethnicities show different amounts of EE in different ways (over involvement or negativity) and that effects different ethnicities in different ways o Lower IQ, poor social and motor skills, and more negative emotions as children seemed to correlate with later development of schizophrenia o Reduced Gray matter volume has been found in people with schizophrenia o Problem with treating schizophrenia is that the disease itself makes the person unable to realize they need treatment o First generation drugs for schizophrenia treated the positive and disorganized symptoms but had little to no effect on the negative symptoms o Common side effects of antipsychotics are sedation, dizziness, blurred vision, restlessness, sexual dysfunction, and even tremors of the fingers, shuffling gait, and drooling. o Narcoleptic malignant syndrome: side effect that occurs from antipsychotic drugs; can be fatal, are severe muscular rigidity with fever, increase BP/HR, and a coma may occur. o Clozapine started the development of second generation antipsychotics; had therapeutic gains for those who didn't respond well to first generation drugs  Clozapine had its own set of side effects – impair the immune system functioning (decrease in white blood cell count), seizures, dizziness, fatigue, drooling, and weight gain o Olanzapine and risperidone are the other two second generation drugs o Second generation antipsychotics appear to be equally effective as first generation in treating positive and disorganized symptoms, and more effective in reducing negative symptoms.  Also thought to improve cognition (attention, memory) o Combination of medication and psychosocial treatment predicted the best outcome o Research has shown that social skills training can help people with schizophrenia achieve fewer relapses, better social functioning, and a higher quality of life o Family therapies are used to:  Educate about schizophrenia – specifically genetic or neurobiological factors that predispose some people to the illness. Help high-EE families learn how to control their inappropriate or ineffectual actions  Inform about antipsychotic medication  Blame avoidance and reduction  Communication and problem solving skills within the family  Social network expansion  Hope for improvement o Maladaptive beliefs of some people with schizophrenia can in fact benefit from cognitive behavior therapy; CBT can reduce negative symptoms as well as positive and disorganized o Psychoeducation is an approach that seeks to educate people about their illness o Case manager was created as a new mental health specialty; they were able to connect people with schizophrenia with providers of whatever services they required. o Halfway houses are used for those who still cannot be fully independent; they are protected living units.
