This article describes a psychotherapeutically oriented approach to schizophrenia developed especially to meet the needs of the community psychiatric field. Because of the heterogeneous nature of the schizophrenic psychoses, the authors emphasize that these patients should always be treated based on case-specific premises. The main principles of the(More)
Non-compliance problems may rise to 50% among patients undergoing neuroleptic treatment. There are no direct measures available to predict compliance, if previous non-compliance is not taken into account. Attitudes towards neuroleptic treatment and insight into psychotic symptoms may vary during the course of the treatment process. It would be relevant to(More)
The relative value of nine spinal and thoracic mobility measurements was investigated in 73 male patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). The value of a test was obtained by the relative ranks of validity, reliability and sensitivity to change. Validity was determined as age-adjusted correlation of the test result with AS-specific radiological changes in(More)

We have analyzed the properties of dust in the high galactic latitude translucent cloud Lynds 1780 using ISOPHOT maps at 100µm and 200µm and raster scans at 60µm, 80µm, 100µm, 120µm, 150µm and 200µm. In far-infrared (FIR) emission, the cloud has a single core that coincides with the maxima of visual extinction and 200µm optical depth. At the resolution of(More)
The low-mass star formation region associated with the reflection nebula Cederblad 110 in the Chamaeleon I cloud was mapped with the Australian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) at 6 and 3.5 cm. Altogether 11 sources were detected, three of which are previously known low mass young stellar objects associated with the nebula: the illuminating star IRS 2 (Class(More)
The five-year follow-up results of 28 first-contact schizophrenic patients are compared with an older patient series of 53 patients from the same district. The treatment of the new series followed the principles of the need-adapted model. The emphasis was on immediate initial crisis-oriented family interventions. The treatment of the old series followed(More)
The reform of mental health services in Finland signifies that besides the structural development of services, the development of new approaches in care is needed. Besides the other elements, information-giving has an important role when supporting outpatients' and their caregivers' everyday lives. The aim of this study was to describe how patients with(More)
