Title: How to respond effectively to your relative with schizophrenia who may have challenging behaviour.
Summary: There are many ways of dealing with behaviour that upsets you. There are also ways of making yourself feel better about it, even if you can’t change the person’s behaviour. It is important to encourage the person to control his/her own behaviour. Before working out the best thing to do, it is important to understand what is happening to your relative, to know what is possible to expect of them, and to accept your own feelings and not blame yourself. Your relative may not be able to help doing some things because they are part of the illness. But many behaviours can change, with good management, learning some self-control, and with your help. The following suggestions are made to help you to cope with certain behaviour associated with schizophrenia. Remember that every person is different, and everyone’s circumstances are different. These are suggestions to try, but if they don’t work for you, it might help if you consult with the mental health professional that you see, about what to do next. It may be that the particular suggestion just needs to be used differently in your situation, or that a different method may work better. Don’t assume that nothing can be done.
