Anosognosia is the inability to perceive that one is ill due to impairment to the brain's ability to see oneself accurately. It has been identified as the single biggest reason why more than 50 percent of people living with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder refuse treatment and, when they do accept it, often stop after days or months have gone by. This session will reveal how anosognosia and the poor adherence it creates-to all kinds of treatment and services, not just drug treatment-differ from denial or simple stubbornness. It will provide practical communication tools to help participants reduce tensions with the individual they are trying to help and strategies for engaging the person in treatment. - Xavier Amador, Ph.D., founder, LEAP Institute, New York, N.Y. The Rona and Ken Purdy Award to End Discrimination will be presented to the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL) at this session.
