Abstract

The language used to describe the families of schizophrenic individuals is reviewed briefly. It is suggested that this language has negative connotations and is a legacy of past theory interpreting parents as primary causal agents in schizophrenia. If we are to engage the families of schizophrenic patients in cooperative therapeutic endeavors, we must begin to speak to and about those families in more neutral terms.
