Psychological Interventions in Early Psychosis provides a comprehensive overview of the emerging research and clinical evidence base for psychological treatments across the phases of early psychosis. Beginning with identified at-risk young people, the text continues through to those in acute and recovery phases, to the needs of patients with persistent symptoms.
This practical treatment handbook:
- draws upon the expertise of several internationally recognised clinical and research programs
- integrates reviews of the relevant research literature with illustrative case examples
- covers critical issues for the clinician in focal chapters on suicide prevention, comorbid cannabis abuse, and family work
- describes several modalities of treatment, such as multi-family psychoeducation, group work, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural approaches.
Specialist early psychosis services are developing rapidly worldwide. Psychological Interventions in Early Psychosis will be an essential resource for clinicians and service leaders alike.
