A 100-year-old controversy exists concerning the origin and cause of the symptoms used to diagnose a person with schizophrenia. Are those symptoms biologically-based (i.e., faulty genes, chemical imbalances, etc.), or are they emotionally based? This controversy still exists today in part because absolutely no biological cause-and-effect or pathophysiological evidence exists for this condition. On the other hand, how can such often hard-to-understand behavior be emotionally or intentionally-based? Why would a person act in ways that can literally destroy his or her life? After 35 years of studying this so-called condition, Dr. Ty Colbert has written a short book to help people finally understand what is referred to as schizophrenia from an emotional and trauma perspective. Offering a clear understanding (that also makes sense) will greatly help suffering persons to help themselves, as well as give direction to the helpers of such persons.
