From the Publisher
"Clinicians working with family members of persons with psychosis need practical, hands-on information about different treatment models, strategies and case examples addressing common challenges and special populations, caregiver perspectives, and guidelines for developing family intervention services in routine practice settings. This outstanding book meets these vital needs, and deserves a place on the bookshelf of all clinicians working with this population."
–Kim T. Mueser, Professor of Psychiatry and Community and Family Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School Hanover, New Hampshire
"This is a special book prepared by many of the most outstanding professionals in the field and will greatly enhance practical knowledge on working with families for clinicians and managers. Family work is not an "extra" and we all should be involved. Readers will find here a wealth of information and inspiration as well as excellent tools to apply the methods in their clinical settings."
–Diane Froggatt, Secretary and Development Officer, World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders
"This fine book, by taking a casebook approach, provides rich insights into how family interventions translate theory into practice. Few accounts, if any, give a clearer picture of what family interventions for psychosis look and feel like."
–Professor George Szmukler, Psychiatry and Society, Institute of Psychiatry, UK
"This excellent book reflects a maturing of the field of family work for psychosis while also providing a powerful stimulus for future development. Its detailed focus on research-informed practice, combined with a critical reflective edge means that it contains a wealth of invaluable ideas and suggestions about developing and providing services for families, without being simply another ‘how to’ text. I would strongly recommend it to all who are concerned with improving services for people with psychosis, and it should be required reading on specialist family therapy and family interventions training programmes."
–Dr Alex Reed, Family Therapist & Family Therapy Trainer
"Reading this book gave me an overwhelming sense of relief. For the last 25 years, I have been associated with families coping with psychosis. I have watched them struggle to understand, to accept, and to learn how to manage the bewildering array of difficult circumstances created by psychosis in a loved family member…This book shows us how to develop and utilize this resource for the benefit of all concerned, and is an invaluable resource for mental health clinicians, family carers and service users alike."
–Dr. Margaret Leggatt, Founding Director SANE-Australia
