Psychological Management of Schizophrenia by Max J. Birchwood

Psychological Management of Schizophrenia Edited by Max Birchwood, All Saints Hospital, Birmingham, UK and Nicholas Tarrier, University of Manchester, UK This book builds upon the success of Birchwood and Tarrier’s previous publication Innovations in the Psychological Management of Schizophrenia and offers a practical guide for mental health professionals wanting to develop and enhance their skills in these new treatment and intervention approaches. The chapters, which largely reflect work undertaken in the authors’ centres in Manchester and Birmingham, include:

  • Family interventions and network support
  • Early warning systems to anticipate and control relapse
  • Strategies to control distressing symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions
  • Methods of improving recovery from acute psychosis
An introductory chapter reviews recent developments in psychological treatment, which are likely to achieve prominence in the coming years, including:
  • Cognitive therapy for hallucinations and delusions, depression and suicide
  • Early intervention in young people with psychosis
  • Community rehabilitation and cognitive-behavioural approaches to early intervention
This volume will be an invaluable asset to mental health professionals at the "cutting edge" of community care who wish to enhance their clinical practice with up-to-date treatment approaches
