Abstract
Many patients with mental disorders visit folk healers, which can cause harm to their mental health. Psychiatrists need to know about patientsí treatment experience with healers to plan for further treatment. This study aimed to develop a program for the prevention of treatment of patients with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder in healers. We examined 201 patients Ė 28.4% male and 71.6% female with psychotic mental disorders using Clinical-Psychopathological and Psychometric methods to identify the consequences of the healersí treatment. Statistical processing was carried out by nonparametric statistics (descriptive statistics, criterion ÔĀ£2 for 2x2 contingency tables). Then we developed and test a program for the prevention of the treatment of patients by occultists, and verify its effectiveness. It was found that social maladjustment female (69.4%) patients with hereditary burden of mental illness (74.6%), alcohol abuse (64%), a suicidal behavior in relatives (75%) and themselves (32.7%) applied to heal-ers more often. The program for the prevention of the treatment of people with mental disorders to traditional heal-ers should consist of 4 parts:
1. Psycho-educational work.
2. Group discussion of occult practices and their consequences.
3. Demonstration of the "Barnum effect" Ė to dissuade patients of the effectiveness of healing.
4. Individual multimodal psychotherapy (from 3 to 5 sessions).

Patients need to understand the reasons of their illness and the possibility of therapy. Our program helps to reduce patientsí confidence in the effectiveness of occult practices and begin to understand themselves and their mental state better.

Key words: schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, traditional healers, occultism, social and clinical consequences.
