How do you feel about using videos of those having an episode to help them understand the effects of the illness on them and the frustrations of explaining how they acted as they deny remembering any of it?

Answered by Frederick J. Frese III, Ph.D.:
I have some limited experience with such a procedure. From the experience that I have had I have found it valuable. Often the person in psychosis does not realize how they are seen by others when they are in such a state. To allow them to see themselves in such a condition can be a good experience for them.
