An estimated two to three million people in the United States today were raised by a schizophrenic parent. Brown and Roberts offer a unique book based on interviews with over forty adult children of mothers diagnosed as schizophrenic. The authors provide an overview of schizophrenia, behaviors of the affected parent, and the marital relationship of the patient and her non-schizophrenic spouse. As adults, the respondents now share their grievances about the psychological community -- what they needed and did not get. The authors then present suggestions for the treatment of affected children that are aimed at psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and health care providers
