Psychotic - Definition


Definition


The term psychotic is employed to describe a person suffering from a disorder known as psychosis. It is distinct from neurosis in that psychotics are unaware of having a mental disorder. The different forms of psychosis all share the presence of delirium, a distorted view of reality with ideas and speech that go against objectifiable facts. Dissociative syndromes are also associated with this disorder, which constitute a disorder affecting intellectual function, behaviour, and emotion. Psychosis usually manifests in young adults, and are sometimes indicative of a psychotic progression that can be detected in childhood. Psychosis is a mental disorder that requires psychological consultation and lifelong therapy.
