In this next part of the course, you're going to be seeing interviews with four different actors. These actors will be displaying different symptoms of schizophrenia. Paranoid, disorganized, negative symptoms, and a person who has recovered. In this first clip, you're going to be watching someone who has many of the symptoms that would characterize someone with a paranoid profile of schizophrenia. What this means is they have irrational beliefs about being persecuted. They believe that people may be monitoring their thoughts. Someone may be monitoring their phone conversations, their interactions on computers, and in some cases, some folks with these types of symptoms even believe that there might be some sort of chip or mechanism by which signals are being recorded from their body. In this next clip, what I want you to do is pay close attention to the nature of the delusions or irrational beliefs that the person is struggling with. Are they persecutory beliefs? Do they believe they're being followed? And then I also want you to pay attention to the affect of the client. How do they appear emotionally? And what is their communication like with the interviewer? Is their communication clear? Is their rapport good? At the end of this video, in each of the next four videos, you'll have an opportunity to describe exactly what you saw in terms of the symptoms. Once you've submitted you're response, you'll be able to see how other people in the course also perceive the symptoms in each of these scenarios. Hi. My name is Dr. Kurtz. Nice to meet you. What's your name? Manuel. Nice to meet you. Good to meet you, Manuel. First thing I want to say is, I am the psychologist at this clinical mental health center. And I wondered if you would mind if I asked you a few questions. No. I don't mind. So, could you tell me why your doctor sent you to meet with me? What was the reason for that? I was hospitalized. I've floated by the riverbank on the street. Trespassing, the cops told me. They handcuffed me. They broke my wrists. I can show you the scars. I believe you, Manuel. You don't have to show me. Just so I understand correctly, so you went to the hospital because you were homeless. Is that right? They hospitalized me. They put me in the hardest bed you can imagine. No TV. I was there hours upon hours and they did so many tests and there are a lot of very sick people in those units. You just need to stay away from them. One of them tried to steal my clothes. Real muddy. I got out of there last week. Often, when people are sent to meet with me, it's that they have some psychological issues. So perhaps, they hear things that other people don't hear. Maybe they see things that other people don't see. Sometimes they might have unusual thoughts like they might think they're being followed. Also perhaps, their mood is really bad. They feel very depressed or anxious. Would you say that any of those things apply to you? No. My thinking is fine. I'm not sad. I just need to get my job back. Yeah, makes sense. And in your own opinion, do you think you have a mental illness? No. Can you tell me a little bit more about being homeless? Tell me a little bit more about that experience. I used to work delivering packages, 10 packages a day on my bike. My brother got me that bike as a Christmas present. It was his old bike. But then the bike got stolen. I was going up a third floor building to a photography studio and when I got back down, the bastards had cut the lock. And so, I stopped making money. I couldn't work without my bike. So, I didn't have the money to pay rent and I ended up on the streets. And it was fine. No one really bothered me until the cops came. And could you tell me a little bit about your family and your relationship with your family? My parents split up and my mother kicked me out about a year ago after I got her car into an accident. But she's still asking for money. And how about friends? Were there friends that you spent time with? No. I was looking at your chart and a lot of times where things in the chart that aren't accurate. But I did notice that it looked like you've been calling the FBI repeatedly. Is that true? Is that accurate? I know you've been going through a lot of stuff. It sounds like you've had a really tough period just recently but I'm wondering, do you find that there are people that you don't trust? That there are people that you really don't trust at all? Some, yes. Some, no. Yes. Who might you not trust? I'm being watched 24/7. By who? Contractors with the U.S. Government. How do you know? They wear suits, little Bluetooth devices, cheap foreign suits. I'm an outsider to all this. It's interesting to hear about. I'm just wondering what would be the motivation for them to sort of be watching you or following you? They know I have information. What type of information? They put a chip in my brain. Wow. And how do you know that? How do you know that you have a chip in your brain? About a year ago, I got in an accident with my bike. I was hospitalized and when I woke up, I looked in the mirror and I had scratches on my forehead. And how does it work? How does the chip work? They told me what to think. The messages come from the contractors and sometimes FBI headquarters in Quantico. That sounds very, very tough. What kind of messages are they sending you? Sometimes they tell me that this person might be a Russian spy or that another person might be carrying poison to sicken my coworkers or that this other person is a trained ninja fighter that's going to knock me out if I don't steer clear out of his way. So, I stay out of the way of a lot of people because of that. I can imagine. Yeah. That would be pretty scary. Do you ever follow these messages? Do you ever pay attention to them and sort of act on them? Yeah. About a year ago, they told me that my boss in my old work was planning to attack the governor. And it was a Tuesday, I think, and the governor was coming around to give a speech that Tuesday. So, around the time that he was going to give his speech, I went to my boss and told him that he could not leave his office. Well, that sounds really scary. And it sounds like you were doing what you needed to do. Was there anything else that you did in that situation? I locked my boss up in his office and I closed the door and held it shut for as long as I could until security came and they pulled me away. And then the police came and they sent me to the emergency room. Wow. That sounds tough. That really sounds tough. I'm sorry to hear about that. Do you mind if I ask you some more focused questions. No. I don't mind. Could you tell me how a table and a chair are the same? A table has four legs like a chair. They're both made of wood and they're a piece of furniture. Yeah, great. And how about poetry and painting? How are they alike or the same? They're both works of art. And the term with the saying, too many cooks spoil the broth. What does that mean to you? It means that if too many people are working on a project with different ideas and perspectives, they might not be able to solve the problem because they're all trying to go in different directions. Great. That's really good. Thanks so much for your time. I really appreciate it. Thank you.
