Eighty six schizophrenic patients currently treated in day hospitals in Warsaw were subjects in the study aimed to develop a list of situations most difficult for those suffering from schizophrenia. The results provide an answer to two questions: firstly, what interpersonal problems are regarded as most frequent and most difficult, and secondly – how patients cope with defining difficult situations.
