Helping the Family to Cope with Schizophrenia: Students as Group Therapists

  • G. Buchkremer

Abstract

Psychotherapeutic treatment concepts in which the schizophrenic patient’s relatives take part are presently gaining importance. The reasons for this are evident. Specially since the findings of Brown et al. (1972) and Vaughn and Leff (1976) concerning ‘Expressed Emotion’, it can be assumed that the prevention of relapse can be increased by involving the patient’s relatives.
