[quote:Anonymous Coward 28061560:MV8yMDU2NDIyXzM0NTc4MTUzX0ZFMDQ3M0I4] [quote:Anonymous Coward 28061560:MV8yMDU2NDIyXzM0NTc4MTM2X0Q4MzQyMEIx] Mirror his behaviour, in front of him, and get him to associate such behaviour with negative outcomes. For instance, sit near him and start talking to yourself, completely ignoring him, and if he asks a question, ignore it and keep talking to yourself about something totally unrelated. This will make him feel ignored, excluded and invisible, and he may come to associate such negative feelings with the generic behaviour of someone talking to themselves. However, when or if you see him become too frustrated from being ignored, turn to him directly and look him the eyes, and say, would you like some (say some sort of food, some sort of treat), and then reward him with that treat straight away; he will become to associate direct face-to-face talking with a reward. It sounds old school and pavlovian, but it is worth a try. [/quote] I meant to add, before you switch and talk to him directly offering some sort of treat, leave the room and let things cool a bit. Only later, go back and speak to him directly with eye contact. [/quote]
My son is no longer on any medication for schizophrenia (he is supposed to be on injections of clopixol fortnightly but it didn't change anything so I haven't taken him for his injections for the last month). He is on a low dose of Lithium for bipolar but his only 2 bad habits these days is constantly talking to himself out loud & not sleeping at regular times. I don't want him medicated again but we have a psychiatrist appointment on the 28th & if I can't find a way to stop this then they will put him back on psych meds as he is court ordered until the 18th of January. We eat well & I have him on fish oil, B complex, magnesium & zinc. He has put on about 20kg's in 6 months from the psych meds & has no desire to do ANYTHING at all!!
