Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM(Abbott Laboratories)
Description:This intriguing new addition to the field delves into the importance of family involvement in schizophrenia. Faced with evidence that many clinicians assume that family involvement is difficult to provide or that families have given up hope, the author attempts to revise clinicians' notions and provide the groundwork for therapeutic intervention.
Purpose:The purpose of the book is to help students and clinicians better understand and apply the various therapeutic models available for working with families. With the trend toward psychopharmacological interventions, brief hospitalizations, and short-term therapy, the importance of the family as a support network, not just in schizophrenia but in other mental illnesses as well, has been overlooked and relied upon less.
Audience:Intended mainly for students and clinicians in the mental health field, families of those suffering with schizophrenia would benefit as well. The book is easy to read yet academically and clinically oriented to keep the attention of the mental health professional. The author is a credible authority and a concerned member of the mental health community.
Features:While most readers will be familiar with psychodynamic, experiential family, and cognitive behavioral therapy, the author discusses Bowenian, strategic, and narrative family therapy amongst others. A number of chapters which will be of benefit to families, including an overview of schizophrenia, families and schizophrenia, and self-help and advocacy. This unique book helps to bridge the gap between the technical, clinical side of mental healthcare and the need for family support and understanding.
Assessment:This truly is a must-read and a tremendously beneficial book, not just for those in the field of mental health, but also for families who struggle to cope with the devastating effects of schizophrenia.
