Product Description

An essential reference for assessing and treating people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders – now updated and even more comprehensive.

The new edition of this highly acclaimed volume provides a fully updated and comprehensive account of the psychopathology, clinical assessment, and treatment of schizophrenia spectrum disorders. It emphasizes functional assessment and modern psychological treatment and rehabilitation methods, which continue to be under-used despite overwhelming evidence that they improve outcomes. The compact and easy-to-read text provides both experienced practitioners and students with an evidence-based guide incorporating the major developments of the last decade: the new diagnostic criteria of the DSM-5, introducing the schizophrenia spectrum and neurodevelopmental disorders, the further evolution of recovery as central to treatment and rehabilitation, advances in understanding the psychopathology of schizophrenia, and the proliferation of psychological and psychosocial modalities for treatment and rehabilitation.

Praise for the book

"Without question, the clearest explanation of the nature of the schizophrenia spectrum and, more importantly, what to do about it. This book should be read by anyone who treats or cares for people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders."
Joel A. Dvoskin, PhD, ABPP (Forensic), University of Arizona College of Medicine, Tucson, AZ

"There is really no book that provides such a concise, yet comprehensive review of schizophrenia as this one. I recommend it as core reading in a graduate level psychopathology course or as an introductory resource for new mental health staff working with individuals with schizophrenia spectrum disorders. In essence, it is a “one stop shop” for all one needs to know about all that’s schizophrenia. Every mental health professional should have this on their bookshelf."
David L. Penn, PhD, Linda Wagner-Martin Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC

"The extensively updated second edition of this concise, authoritative book is a gem. In approximately 100 pages, the authors provide a highly readable, valuable resource for anyone who wants a better understanding of the nature and treatment of schizophrenia spectrum disorders, including the latest scientific advances. I strongly recommend this book to professionals and non-professionals alike."
Kim T. Mueser, PhD, Professor of Occupational Therapy, Psychology, and Psychiatry, Boston University, Boston, MA

"This compact volume efficiently summarizes the complexities of assessment and treatment for the schizophrenia spectrum. It provides a thorough update of current psychopathology and the rapidly evolving treatment options in psychiatric rehabilitation with the added advantage of new insights into mental health policy and politics. It will be a valuable resource for those students and practitioners who are new to the area. But it also offers us old hands a timely update as a new era of research and clinical practice unfolds."
Professor Dame Til Wykes DBE, Vice Dean Psychology and Systems Sciences, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London, UK
