Praise for the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series

"A major stumbling block to the adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, which has all of these characteristics and more."
—Edward J. Mullen, Willma and Albert Musher Chair Professor, Columbia University

State-of-the-art, empirical support for psychosocial treatment of schizophrenia

Part of the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, Psychosocial Treatment of Schizophrenia provides busy mental health practitioners with detailed, step-by-step guidance for implementing clinical interventions that are supported by the latest scientific evidence.

This thorough, yet practical, reference draws on a roster of experts and researchers in the field who have assembled state-of-the-art knowledge into this well-rounded guide. Each chapter serves as a practitioner-focused how-to reference and covers interventions that have the best empirical support for the psychosocial treatment of schizophrenia, including:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Assertive community treatment
  • Critical time intervention
  • Motivational interviewing for medication adherence
  • Psychoeducational family groups
