Schizophrenia and training at work

When I coach managers as a coach, I always ask to respect the power of training questions and recognize the possibility that what begins as an innocent, business conversation can lead to a bug release. Advisers were advised to develop at least some insight into signs of abnormal psychology. Take an example of what was most commonly diagnosed with mental illness; Supposed to affect about 1% of the population at some point – schizophrenia.

It's a common misconception that schizophrenia means a dangerous personality. This is not true. It's really a common concept for a psychosis syndrome that is characterized by personal interference, losing contact with reality and so on.

See how the situation could be described and the symptoms you might expect to be present.

First, we will consider the first symptoms of Schneider (1959):


Typical symptoms under this heading are words – strange verbal associations and clang associations – link words by sound rather than translate

Auditor hallucinations:

This is a classic "I heard voices", where sufferers believe that external values ​​direct them to do something that they do not control.

Main Consequences:

Apologies are false assumptions what most people would look like in real life situations. Common schizophrenia variants contain:

Impact of harassment – the suffering believes that with the mercy of external forces, magnificent effects – for example, "I am Napoleon". Violence of persecution – "They've come to get me", ie. Persecution

Here are schizophrenic feelings that are obviously inappropriate for the situation, such as giggling at the reception of bad news

Psychomotor Disorders:

Psychomotor Disorders:

] Incredibly handy, reluctant and peculiar face

Lack of orgasm:

People suffering from schizophrenia often find it hard to maintain their normal lives. They can struggle with even simple actions and can often be withdrawn and absurd.

Schizophrenia is a term that has occurred cheaply due to abuse in the hands of satirists and writers. In truth, it is a terrible burden for the suffering and their families, who deserve our sympathy.

It is illegal that the training manager is the first to strike such symptoms but it is not unheard of. Schizophrenics may continue their work with perhaps some minor changes or transferred to other obligations. A training method for communicating between the university of newly diagnosed schizophrenia should also prove a sensitive way to enable everyone to change.

Some studies suggest that schizophrenia – like many abnormal psychological conditions – can occur or worsen with stress and work is the most common platform for experiencing stress these days. We trainers can be in a very good position to notice the first signs of stress and where it could lead.
