Abstract

The study aim was to describe how a patient with schizophrenia who had been in a psychiatric hospital for an extended period of time changed in his desire to interact with others after participating in the therapeutic recreation program, and to interpret his inner process based on symbolic interactionism theory. Data from a patient who showed marked changes in narratives of an interview held after the program and through observation during sessions were analyzed. The patient gained a sense of willingness, including the desire to interact with others and began to act accordingly.
