Abstract

During the past 25 years psychiatry has increased its understanding of the social context of schizophrenia in four major areas. Reasonable reliability can now be achieved in describing and recognizing many of the acute and chronic syndromes, so that comparability can be achieved between different research teams. Much is now known about the proximate social causes of symptoms and disabilities. The relationship between social and pharmacological treatments is now better understood. A more rational approach to the planning and prescription of services and to the counseling of patients and relatives can be made. Each of these lines of advance promises to lead to further progress in the future.
