Highly Commended in the Psychiatry category at the 2010 BMA Medical Book Awards!

Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Schizophrenic Psychoses brings together professionals from around the world to provide an extensive overview of the treatment of schizophrenia and psychosis.

Divided into three parts – past, present and future – the book begins by examining the history of the treatment of schizophrenia and psychosis, with reference to Freud, Jung, Harry Stack Sullivan and Adolf Meyer, amongst others.

Part two then takes a geographical look at treatment and its evolution in different parts of the world including the UK, USA, Northern Europe and Eastern Asia.

Finally, part three covers the range of interventions, from pharmacological treatments to psychoanalytic psychotherapy to CBT, with the aim of helping to shape the future integration of treatment.

With contributions from leading figures in the field, this book will provide a varied examination of treatment, and spark much-needed debate about its future. As such it will be essential reading for all mental health professionals, in particular those involved in psychiatry, psychology and psychotherapy.

Product Description

Review

"I am delighted to bring to the attention of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals across the world the work reflected in this book, as I am convinced that these approaches with their humanistic core have much to offer for upgrading person-centered clinical care for people experiencing psychoses."- Professor Juan E. Mezzich, M.D., Ph.D., President of the World Psychiatric Association

"A wonderful book that should be read by all professionals that deal with schizophrenia! As a necessary counterweight to the current biology-dominated and drug-centred practice, it offers an almost complete anthology of the worldwide developments of truly integrative psycho-socio-biological approaches and their psychotherapeutic consequences on the individual, familial and socio-environmental level." - Luc Ciompi, Professor Emeritus of Social Psychiatry, University of Basel, Switzerland.

"An extremely useful book and one that represents a growing interest in psychological and social approaches to improving the lives of individuals living with, and recovering from, the most severe and misunderstood of the serious mental illnesses--namely schizophrenia. As an encyclopedia of previous and current attempts to intervene in social and psychological ways in schizophrenia, [this book] is unparalleled." -Larry Davidson in PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 54, December 2009
