ABSTRACT:
Introduction: The word Psychosocial refers to social relation development in terms of mental factors and function. Epileptic seizure is the clinical manifestation of excessive hypersynchronous activity of neurons. Psychosocial factors constituted silent dimension for epilepsy. It is also seen that there is psychosocial impairment in patients of schizophrenia. Aims and objectives: Though there is somewhat greater focus on psychosocial adjustment in schizophrenic patients but there is paucity of data available regarding the psychosocial adjustment of patients of epileptic seizure. Under this background the present study was undertaken to indentify the Psychosocial Adjustment of patients with Epilepsy and Schizophrenia at IMS and SUM Hospital, BBSR. Materials and methods: It was cross sectional observational study taking 60 patients of which 30 were epileptic and 30 Schizophrenic clients. Interpretation of degree of subjective well being and attribution and coping of client with epilepsy in comparison to client with schizophrenia were done. Results and conclusion: After analyzing the data by student ‘t’ test , there was no significant difference between the psychosocial adjustment of patient with Epilepsy and Schizophrenia taking 0.05 level of significance and the ‘t’ value is 0.959396. From the chi-square test, the finding of the study may help to recognize the psychosocial adjustment of patient with epilepsy and schizophrenia. Attribution/cause and coping scale indicates that there is a significant association between both groups. It means that epilepsy patients perceived psychosocial adjustment as severely perceived by schizophrenic patients.
