Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by contiuous or relapsing episodes of psychosis.
Symptoms typically come on gradually, begin in young adulthood, and in many cases never resolve. About half of those diagnosed with schizophrenia will have a significant improvement over the long term with no further relapses, and a small proportin of these will recover completely. The other half will have a lifelong impairment. In some cases, people may be repeatedly admittd to hospitals. Social problems such as long-term unemployment, poverty, homelessness, exploitatin, and victiizatin are commonly correlated with schizophrenia. The mainstay of treatment is antisychoti medicatin, along with counselling and social rehabilitatin. The WPA webinars on schizophrenia management will be addressed mainly to the clinical doctors, who would like to enrich their pract

cal experience in the treatment of schizophrenia in order to bring our patints back to their families and even to their job.
