Abstract

This paper explores some of the literature and the personal experience of the author to establish the key feature of the prodrome in first psychosis schizophrenia, the loss of functioning the individual experiences. The emerging literature on the subject is seen to lack consensus, and be focused on the predictive value of pro-drome symptoms, not on potential rehabilitation and recovery issues. Because prodrome symptoms are disabling, experienced during the transition from adolescent to adult, and of considerable duration, they are likely to have a profound effect on rehabilitation and recovery in treatment.
