The Schizophrenia Spectrum
4.4 out of 5.0, Based on: 202 reviews
This course 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 evidencebased
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.
