Description - Psychosocial Interventions for People with Schizophrenia by Neil Harris
The treatment of people with schizophrenia has undergone dramatic changes since the 1970s. Approaches to care, collectively known as psychosocial interventions, have emerged from research which have been shown to reduce symptomatology, relapse and improve quality of life. This book provides an overview and practical guidelines for helping people with schizophrenia using psychosocial interventions. It explains these interventions within the context of current theoretical understanding of the aetiology, presentation and prognosis of the illness.
