...(1968) study (see evaluation below). It was a prospective study in which they checked on life events experienced in a year period. They used the Life Events and Difficulties Scale, where independent raters assessed how severe a life event was accounting for the individual’s personal circumstances to take into account context. They also considered whether the life event was independent of the patient’s illness. They found a 23% risk of patients having a relapse during the 1-year period due to life events. Second, the risk was 41% for patients who had twice the average number of life events. The findings contradict Brown and Birley (1968) as they did not find that the life events needed to immediately precede the schizophrenic episode. Myin-Germeys et al. (2003, see A2 Level Psychology page 403) found patients with schizophrenia showed more intense negative emotional reactions to daily hassles. This suggests that these emotional reactions make patients with recent major life events more vulnerable to relapse. EVALUATION OF LIFE EVENTS * Life events do not always precede schizophrenia. Many patients’ illnesses do follow a major life event but this is not a clear-cut relationship because life events are not a prerequisite of schizophrenia; some develop schizophrenia without any recent life events. * Relapse rather than onset. Life events are more strongly linked to relapse than onset. * Retrospective. Patients’ recall of life events is retrospective and so may......
