  • Psychological Theories
    • AO1
      • Psychodynamic view of schizophrenia - results of regression to pre-ego state and attempts to re-establish ego control
      • Some schizophrenic symptoms reflect infantile state, other symptoms are an attempt to re-establish control
      • Further features of disorder appear as individuals attempt to understand their experiences
      • They may reject feedback from others and develop delusional beliefs
    • AO2
      • Very little evidence to support psychodynamic view of schizophrenia
      • Behaviour of parents assumed to be key influence in development of schizophrenia but may be consequence rather than cause
      • Cognitive explanation supported by neurophysiological evidence
