Abstract
Objectives:Many schizophrenic patients present with persistent, medically unexplained physical symptoms that pose diagnostic and therapeutic problems for psychiatrists. This study examines the differences between schizophrenic patients with somatization and those without somatization by assessing perceived family support and coping strategy.
Methods:104 schizophrenic patients with somatization (S group) and 81 schizophrenic patients without somatization (N group) were interviewed and asked to complete self-report measures. Perceived social support-family scale was used to measure the extent of family support. Multidimensional coping scale was used to measure the coping strategy.
Results:S group reported significantly lower perceived family support than that N group reported. Compared to N group, S group showed significantly higher scores at the items of active forgetting, emotional pacification, and self-criticism. In the S group, as the perceived family support became lower, the scores of emotional pacification, self-criticism and fatalism appeared higher.
Conclusion:These findings suggest that low perceived family support is associated with somatization and there is a correlation between low perceived family support and passive coping strategy in the schizophrenic patients with somatization. (Schizophrenia Clinics 2004;7:3-8)
Key Words: Schizophrenia·Somatization·Perceived family support·Coping strategy.
