OLLU WK 6 Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders Discussion


I’m working on a social science discussion question and need support to help me understand better.


Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders are perhaps one of the most debilitating and stigmatizing mental health conditions practitioners will encounter out in the field. Clients who live with such conditions often experience significant challenges in terms of functionality due to chronicity of psychosis (a break in reality), as well as other symptoms that are–in and of themselves– disabling. Treatment is primarily pharmacological; however, depending on the client’s current level of cognitive functioning, non-pharmacological treatments may also be beneficial (mostly in terms of dealing with distress experienced around their own symptoms).


  1. Create an initial post (150-200 word) that addresses the following question and integrates at least one relevant article: 
    • “What are ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ symptoms of schizophrenia? What treatments are available for schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders (include pharmacological non-pharmacological interventions)?”
