Transcript of schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a mental illness that usually strikes in late adolescence or early adulthood, but can strike at any time in life. The signs and symptoms vary from individual to individual, but all people with the disorder show one or more of the following symptoms: Fernanda Vargas & Carlos Velazquez
Cullen Carrol Paranoid-Type : is characterized by delusions and auditory hallucinations but relatively normal intellectual functioning and expression of affect.People with paranoid-type schizophrenia can exhibit anger, aloofness, anxiety, and argumentativeness.
Disorgnized-Type : is characterized by speech and behavior that are disorganized or difficult to understand, and flattening or inappropriate emotions.People with disorganized-type schizophrenia may laugh at the changing color of a traffic light or at something not closely related to what they are saying or doing.
Catatonic-Type: is characterized by disturbances of movement. People with catatonic-type schizophrenia may keep themselves completely immobile or move all over the place.
Undifferentiated-Type: is characterized by some symptoms seen in all of the above types but not enough of any one of them to define it as another particular type of schizophrenia.
Residual-Type: is characterized by a past history of at least one episode of schizophrenia, but the person currently has no positive symptoms (delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech or behavior).
