Psychotic disorders are characterized by abnormal or disorganized thinking and a break from reality, generally in the form of hallucinations and/or delusions. Psychotic symptoms can sometimes appear in other disorders (such as depression), but in psychotic disorders these are the primary symptoms. The most well known of these disorders is Schizophrenia, but this category also includes schizophreniform disorder, schizoaffective disorder, delusional disorder, and brief psychotic disorder. Schizotypal personality disorder is also included with other disorders in the Schizophrenia Spectrum, but in this LibGuide that disorder is discussed alongside other Cluster A Personality Disorders.
