Abstract

Objective and Method: The aim of this study was to investigate how spousesof schizophrenic patients experience the onset of the disease. Based on the narrative analysis of 23 in-depth interviews, the article highlights different aspects of this stressful life event. Results: The first episode of aschizophrenic disorder leads to severe distress in the spouse of the patient. Emotions of fear, despair and loss of control are especially pronouncedif spouses feel that neither their information about the disease nor theirsupportive resources are sufficient, The illness is often viewed as an existential threat to marriage and family life. Discussion: Supportive services for spouses of schizophrenic patients should be offered very closely to the onset of schizophrenia, because the situation is especially burdensome in this period, Interventions should meet the particular needs of spouses. In addition to information about the illness and eloping strategies intervention programs should consider issues which are relevant for partnership andparenting roles.
