What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Clinicians working with family members of persons with psychosisneed practical, hands-on information about different treatmentmodels, strategies and case examples addressing common challengesand special populations, caregiver perspectives, and guidelines fordeveloping family intervention services in routine practicesettings. This outstanding book meets these vital needs, anddeserves a place on the bookshelf of all clinicians working withthis population."
Kim T. Mueser, Professor of Psychiatry and Communityand Family Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School Hanover, NewHampshire

"This is a special book prepared by many of the most outstandingprofessionals in the field and will greatly enhance practicalknowledge 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 aswell as excellent tools to apply the methods in their clinicalsettings."
Diane Froggatt, Secretary and Development Officer,World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders

"This fine book, by taking a casebook approach, provides richinsights into how family interventions translate theory intopractice. Few accounts, if any, give a clearer picture of whatfamily 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 familywork for psychosis while also providing a powerful stimulus forfuture development. Its detailed focus on research-informedpractice, combined with a critical reflective edge means that itcontains a wealth of invaluable ideas and suggestions aboutdeveloping and providing services for families, without beingsimply another ‘how to’ text. I would stronglyrecommend it to all who are concerned with improving services forpeople with psychosis, and it should be required reading onspecialist family therapy and family interventions trainingprogrammes."
Dr Alex Reed, Family Therapist & Family TherapyTrainer

"Reading this book gave me an overwhelming sense of relief. Forthe last 25 years, I have been associated with families coping withpsychosis. I have watched them struggle to understand, to accept,and to learn how to manage the bewildering array of difficultcircumstances created by psychosis in a loved familymember…This book shows us how to develop and utilize thisresource for the benefit of all concerned, and is an invaluableresource for mental health clinicians, family carers and serviceusers alike."
Dr. Margaret Leggatt, Founding DirectorSANE-Australia
