ABSTRACT

Ongoing family stress and demands during the course of treatment and care giving pose challenges for the mental health professionals besides the primary care provided by the family. The present case illustration allows the practitioner/clinicians to see the full range of family relationships and how family members are impacted when one or more members are experiencing hurt and pain. Family relationships are sources of most intense emotions in people’s lives and hearing the experiences and views of the entire family gives us a comprehensive assessment which helps the practitioner intervene at the level appropriate to the individuals need. The case highlights the importance of family interactional pattern in the management of Schizophrenia.
