Clinical Handbook of Schizophrenia

by Edited by Kim T. Mueser and Dilip V. Jeste

Reviewing the breadth of current knowledge on schizophrenia, this handbook provides clear, practical guidelines for effective assessment and treatment in diverse contexts.

Full Description:   

Reviewing the breadth of current knowledge on schizophrenia, this handbook provides clear, practical guidelines for effective assessment and treatment in diverse contexts. Leading authorities have contributed 61 concise chapters on all aspects of the disorder and its clinical management. In lieu of exhaustive literature reviews, each chapter summarizes the current state of the science; highlights key points the busy practitioner needs to know; and lists recommended resources, including seminal research studies, invaluable clinical tools, and more. Comprehensive, authoritative, and timely, the volume will enable professionals in any setting to better understand and help their patients or clients with severe mental illness.

It would not surprise me if this handbook quickly became the 'go-to' book' on schizophrenia for researchers, clinicians, and students. This is one of those rare volumes that combine excellent depth (via the leading schizophrenia researchers in the world) with a breadth of topics that is second to none."
-David L. Penn, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
