What does Psychoeducation refer to?


Psychoeducation could be explained as systematically used and structured forms of patient information, which are meant for informing the patient and/or the family members about the following things:
  • mental disorders
  • characteristic symptoms and early signs of warning
  • guidance for the introspection and appropriate perception of typical symptoms of the problem
  • understanding of the disorder (what caused the problem?)
  • how to act as a responsible person (what can I do?)
  • Preventing relapses (protection from renewed occurrence)
Psychoeducation can be offered in different forms:
  • lectures
  • psychoeducative groups
  • single consultation
  • counceling (brochures, books, videos, other media)
