Excellent explanation of schizophrenia's place in the spectrum of psychotic disorders
By Nicholas C. on 05. March 2020 for Schizophrenia Spectrum and other Psychotic Disorders – Psychological Disorders (PSY)

Dr. Ahuja clearly illustrates the defining characteristics of schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, as this lecture translates the DSM-V material into a brief review of key points.
