Cambridge University Press, Oct 1, 2009 - Medical - 472 pages
An international team of leading researchers and clinicians provide the first comprehensive, epidemiological overview of this multi-faceted and still perplexing disorder, and address some of the key questions it raises. Controversial issues on the nature and cause of schizophrenia are explored in depth, and separate chapters are devoted to topics such as suicide, violence and substance abuse. Finally, new prospects for treatment and prevention are considered. Drawing together the findings from social, genetic, developmental and classical epidemiology of schizophrenia, this text will prove an invaluable resource for clinicians and researchers.
