Understanding Feelings in Schizophrenia
Does your loved one seem unmotivated or uninterested in doing things? Can you tell how your loved one is feeling by the expressions on their face? In this presentation, you will learn more about the research on emotion expression and feelings in schizophrenia that shows how people with schizophrenia can feel strong emotions even if they don’t express them and how they can enjoy being with other people or working on a project even if they don’t look forward to doing these things.
