The authors examined the correlation between family expressed emotion and relapse in 24 schizophrenic patients in a predominantly inner-city American setting. They found a significant correlation between relapse and high expressed emotion in family members; the level of family expressed emotion was somewhat higher than that reported in previous studies. The findings suggest that the impact of expressed emotion may vary in different sociocultural populations.
