Diagnosing Children with Schizophrenia
It needs to be easier for children to be diagnosed schizophrenia so they can get help before the disorder becomes bad enough and the children cannot function.
Rogerian will be the best idea since there are multiple views since children are involved. The thesis will be a claim of policy beacause I am wanting to change the DSM-V definition of childhood schizophrenia.
~ Children need to be treated before they lose function. ~There are many adults who do not get diagnosed. ~Many schizophrenics can function in society with treatment.
+Children can grow out of their disorder +There is a stigma against schizophrenia +Some treatments could have unexpected side effects, like stunted growth.
-It may be difficult to remain objective during Rogerian -Finding great examples may be difficult since kids are rarely diagnosed with such a serious condition.
