This book provides the data on the relationship between psychopathology and problem behaviour of schizophrenic patients and burden imposed on their primary caregivers. Patients'' psychopathology and problem behaviour were assessed using Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) and Social Behaviour Schedule (SBS) respectively. Caregivers'' amount of burden was assessed using Burden on Family Interview Schedule (BFS).This book provides good references for professionals, undergraduate as well as postgraduate students in the field of psychiatry and psychology.
