Course Description

Despite investment in research and treatment, the outcomes of patients diagnosed with the most severe psychiatric disorders have not improved since the Victorian period. Where are the flaws in our understanding? Mental health treatment needs a radical overhaul to bring it into the 21st century – but what needs to change? In this course, Professor Richard Bentall debunks nine myths about schizophrenia that affect the understanding of the public and professionals alike, and identifies signals that opinion is beginning to shift towards a more humane approach to care. By the end of the course, you will have learned: * the impact of classification on our treatment of psychoses * how odds ratios and heritability statistics are used to calculate relative risks * how meta analysis can be used to uncover correlation of environmental factors affecting psychosis * why there will never be a genetic test for schizophrenia ...
