"This is a well organised, wide-ranging and quite inspiring book... Anyone who now thinks that psychosis is just for psychiatrists and medical treatment had better read this book and have their ideas shaken up." - John Rowan, BACP North London Magazine, Iss. 59, October 2008
"This book advocates the integration of psychological approaches into the treatment of psychoses. It is an important book to be strongly recommended both for trainees, to familiarise themselves with the literature, and for consultants in considering how to effect their integration within their current approach to psychosis." - Richard Lucas, British Journal of Psychiatry, Volume 194, January 2009
"Psychotherapy for the Psychoses is another important existential addition to the literature that explores a variety of different psychotherapeutic approaches to schizophrenia, providing encouragement, and a sophisticated instruction for practitioners in their work with psychotics." - Gregory M. Westlake, Journal of the Society for Existential Analysis, July 2010
