For this paper, you will provide an in-depth analysis of schizophrenia. You discuss major symptoms of the disorder, as well as ways in which the disorder affects the brain. You analyze the influence of the disorder on the life of affected individuals, and you explore treatments of the disorder, including “alternate” treatments and whether such treatments can be considered ethical.

  • Evaluate at least one “alternate” treatment for the disorder and explain whether this treatment could be an effective part of a therapeutic plan for a client with schizophrenia
