While the medical literature contains a vast amount of information on treating schizophrenia, this definitive volume gathers and distills all that data into one reference source. This practical text focuses specifically on the care and management of schizophrenic patients. The chapters address a wide range of factors, from pharmacologic treatment to the effect of demographics on the patient. It also includes first-person accounts of the struggle for recovery. The book is both scholarly and clinical, targeting clinicians, trainees and students. Edited by two distinguished opinion leaders and written by an internationally eminent team, this text is indispensable for those working in the area.
