Abstract

The analysis of social discourses on schizophrenia, in terms of its causal aspects, effects but also forms of therapeutic intervention show a wide diversity of opinions, ranging from empathic to attitudes of total rejection. The book “Trăind cu schizofrenia” [Living with schizophrenia], published by Lumen Publishing House in 2020, is written by two practicing psychologists, Eliza Gianina Cogian, who has been training in family and couple systemic psychotherapy, and also as a therapist for people diagnosed with schizophrenia, and Adina Nicoleta Karner Huţuleac, who is a doctor of psychology and trainer of family and couple systemic psychotherapy. There are many misconceptions and myths about schizophrenia. We must recognize that these myths contribute to maintaining a global pessimism regarding the knowledge related to this disease and at the same time can reduce the patient's chances to improve their condition or to recover. In this sense, the book has the great merit of comparatively analyzing different theoretical concepts, including that of Jung or Bleuler, but also some forms of therapeutic intervention.
