|Abstract: ||Self-perceived stress in 293 psychotic patients (schizophrenic, toxic and brief reactive
psychoses) and a control group of 40 sane individuáis was evaluated by means of the
Frankfurt Complaint Questionnaire. For this purpose, scores obtained in 6 'complementary
Ítems' of the third versión of this questionnaire were studied, both in global and in
detailed form. These Ítems reflect coping mechanisms exerted towards situations
perceived as stressful which can produce clinical manifestations similar to the wellknown
'negative symptoms' of schizophrenia. Results show that self-perceived stress in
all groups of patients is significantly higher than in the control group. In contrast, no significant
differences among the three groups of patients are obtained. In conclusión, we
point out the relevance of studying the psychotic patient's self-perceived stress in order
to detect and minimize or even avoid the patient's risk situations, independen! of his/her
diagnosis. This will be especially useful to obtain optimal conditions for rehabilitation|
