From the Publisher"This series sets a new standard for clear, intelligent clinical writing on psychotherapeutic and psychiatric technique."
—David Spiegel, Stanford University
Using case studies from their own practices, the contributors describe how to conduct a successful assessment of schitzophrenia. They then explore in detail the major treatment methods, including inpatient treatment, individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and the crucial role of medication. The authors also address the timely issue of treating schizophrenia in the era of managed care.
