Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Geraldine Pederson-Krag

Schizophrenics are here characterized as lacking ego resources with which to combat the stress of living and as threatened by anxiety derived from their hostility and incestuous drives. Consequently their egos become fragmented, i.e., they break with reality rather than allow free expression of such impulses.

In individual or group treatment the schizophrenic must be supported by the therapist's ego. The patient should be confronted with present reality rather than be permitted to explore his memories and delusions. Progressive mastery of reality is gained through creative crafts. Group psychotherapy for psychotic provides an escape in silence and detachment, though identification and vicarious catharsis may undermine repressive capabilities; friendly interaction among the members lessens a tendency to autism. On the contrary, a schizophrenic may become the scapegoat in a group of healthier members.
