A Schizophrenic Man with (Perhaps) No Inner Experience

  • Susan M. Melancon
Part of the Emotions, Personality, and Psychotherapy book series (EPPS)


Joe Brown was a 42-year-old resident of a structured and restrictive psychiatric residential facility at the time of sampling. He had been treated in a psychiatric facility for the first time at age 19, and had been in and out of institutions, diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, since that time. He was, at the time of sampling, well oriented for place and time, but was manifestly delusional, at various times during sampling apparently believing he was the Holy Ghost or a “galvanium robot” named Benjamin. He had occasional hallucinations during the period, and exhibited pressure of speech and ideas, loose associations, neologisms, etc.
