What is psychoeducation?

Psychoeducation is, in general terms, the art of explaining complex (medical-scientific) facts & circumstances in a simple way that they are well understood by affected patients and their relatives (who are not specialists).

Those who know more about a disease and possible therapies have less fear & anxiety and deal more responsibly with themselves or an affected relative. The method of psychoeducation is based on this insight.
