Abstract

Families of schizophrenic patients frequently are ill equipped to handle the primary caretaking responsibilities that have fallen to them due to deinstitutionalization. The authors describe a program begun at a medical center in Southern California in 1978 to assist schizophrenic patients living at home and their families. The program, which consists of family therapy sessions in the home, focuses on education about schizophrenia, development of communication skills, and acquisition of structured problem-solving and other behavioral strategies. Preliminary findings of a controlled study of program participants suggest that the family interventions are both cost-effective and highly successful in reducing the incidence of relapse and hospitalization.
