Miss Moxon researched the effectiveness of a brief community based psychoeducational intervention for people with schizophrenia and their families, which aimed to improve family members'' knowledge of schizophrenia and expressed emotion as well as ways of dealing with it on a daily basis. Her results found that this type of intervention can increase knowledge of schizophrenia and coping skills, as well as decrease expressed emotion, distress and burden of care in families. The results supported the value of these programmes in recovery and community support settings and concluded that such an intervention could also be used as a portal to more intensive services.
