A Decompensating Schizophrenic
Bob J. H. W. Zeus was a 19-year-old inpatient at a Dutch psychiatric facility. He had been admitted a week earlier when delusions of persecution and grandeur became overwhelming. He had been diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic several years earlier, and had received frequent psychotherapy and antipsychotic medication since his diagnosis. He volunteered to participate in the sampling research. Bob was bilingual in Dutch (his native tongue) and English, and the sampling conversations took place predominantly in English, although discussion of nuances took place in Dutch with the Dutch second author who was present at all the interviews.
