Nijinsky: A Case Study Analysis of Schizophrenia.

15646. Nijinsky: A Case Study Analysis of Schizophrenia.

Using Nijinsky as the subject, this paper provides a case study of schizophrenia. Provides a background overview of schizophrenia (natural course, major symptoms) and then describes the history, onset and course of Nijinsky's illness, drawing upon information from his biographies and own diaries. Recommends a course of treatment involving anti-psychotics and structured therapy. Although Nijinsky was diagnosed well before the era of biological psychiatry, and although he died just prior to the development of anti-psychotics, this case study draws on the perspective of biological psychiatry for an understanding of this illness. KEYWORDS: psychiatric case studies schizophrenia nijinsky. APA Style. 11 pages, 18 footnotes, 16 bibliographic sources. 3,026 words.
