Schizophrenia Skit for Psychological Disorder and Treatment Group Presentation Project Roles for skit: Claudia-psychologist Edgardo-father Monica-mother Julie-17 year junior in high school, patient with paranoid schizophrenia Claudia: Hi, welcome. I am Dr. Ramos. Monica: Hello, it is nice to meet you. My name is Monica, and this is my husband Edgardo. Julie can you introduce yourself?
