Schizophrenia: Does Talk of Genes and Brains Really Stop a Mother’s Blame?

This week, colleagues from the King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry and I have published a qualitative research paper that analyses, for the first time, how relatives of people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia talk about genes to explain the presence of schizophrenia in the family.

I have written a blog post hosted on Huffington Post (UK), based on this paper. To read, please click here.

The press release from King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry about this research is available here.

The paper details are: Callard, F. et al. ‘Holding blame at bay? ‘Gene talk’ in family members’ accounts of schizophrenia aetiology’, and the paper is available Open Access in BioSocieties (2012) doi: 10.1057/biosoc.2012.12

I look forward to your comments and reactions – to the article and/or to the Huffington Post blog post.
