This chapter is designed to help clinicians deliver psychoeducation about schizophrenia to families in a culturally informed manner. The chapter guides clinicians to systematically examine clients’ cultural conceptualizations of the illness and modify interventions (or the framing of interventions) in a manner that is palatable and relevant to clients. Clinicians are instructed to review core symptoms of the illness, common relapse triggers, and factors that protect against relapse using detailed handouts to guide each session. Clients learn the correct professional terminology for their symptoms, which equips them to communicate more clearly with their psychiatrists and other mental health practitioners. Examples of relevant homework assignments to increase knowledge about schizophrenia and how to manage it are provided. The chapter concludes with a case example of psychoeducation with a family of Mexican origin.
