This was interesting to read cause we talked about it in class and our textbook talked about it.

Abigail Black's curator insight, December 9, 2014 3:58 PM

This was a very interesting article about schizophrenia that explored different options and solutions to help people cope and live with the disorder of schizophrenia. It talked about and listed many of the symptoms that are also listed in the text book. (Lilienfeld, 2010) This article talked about how many people with this disorder don't realize that their thinking is abnormal and that they need to help and often times these people abuse street drugs to try and cope with what they are experiencing instead of seeking professional help. The article discussed a study done that showed that talk therapy can significantly help people with schizophrenia. It can help them to get the voices out of their head and have someone to try and make sense of what is going on with them. This also helps them to realize that their thinking isn't normal and talk therapy helps them and improves their symptoms. 

This is a very credible article because it comes from a very credible website with good information. (psychologytoday.com)

This article does account for gender differences because the study that was discussed in the article was performed on men and women.
