This workshop centers around a videotaped conversation Dr. Szasz had with a young man diagnosed as “schizophrenic” at a major medical center. The conversation effectively demonstrates that “schizophrenia is in the eye of the beholder. ”
- To illustrate how to speak with a person denominated as a psychotic patient as if he/she were a reasonable person, not a “schizophrenic patient”
- To hint, by way of a relatively brief but dramatic human interaction, at the powerful motives that generate and perpetuate the idea of schizophrenia
