Summary

The aim of this search is to realize the subjective experiences of employment among schizophrenic patients by qualitative analysis. We plan to recruit 50 people diagnosed with schizophrenia and divide into two groups, employment and unemployment. Every subjects will complete the demographic data, the evaluation of severity of disease, the record of medication and an intensive interview about their employment experiences. Finally, we will analysis the thick descriptions to understand how schizophrenic patients interpret their employment experiences and which factors will affect their successful employment.
