Clinician Perceptions, Expectations, and Management of Negative Symptoms in Schizophrenia

Stephen R. Marder, MD

Published: January 15, 2013

Article Abstract

Negative symptoms in schizophrenia negatively affect patients’ social and occupational functioning, as well their long-term recovery. Patients may not overtly complain about negative symptoms, which can make them even more challenging to recognize. Clinicians should ask specific questions regarding negative symptoms, determine if the symptoms are primary or secondary, and then address them accordingly. This activity discusses recognizing negative symptoms in patients with schizophrenia and then addressing those symptoms in spite of a paucity of treatment options.
