Alrighty guys,

I've been set a very open essay question as part of my Clinical Psychology module in my first year of University:

Critically discuss the assertion that schizophrenia is a disease.

To be brutally honest, I'm stuck on where to start! I've gone through the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria and I'd like to think I have a decent understanding of what schizophrenia is, yet, this has got me stumped!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dave

It's a discussion so you're finding research to support/reject both views.

It is vs it isn't a disease.

Consider:
What defines a disease? Is that definition reliable?
How we diagnose Schizophrenia - dsm is reductionist?
Treatment/management.
