Different stages, different treatment
Can early, need-adapted treatment prevent the long-term effects of psychosis? How important is phase-specific treatment?
"Evolving Psychosis" explores the success of psycho-social treatments for psychosis in helping patients recover more quickly and stay well longer.
Mental health professionals from all over the world share their clinical experience and scientific findings to shed new light on the issues surrounding need-specific treatment. They cover the nature of psychosis and the need for integration. Particular attention is paid to how the treatment can be improved with individuality tailored treatment programmes, early intervention, more integration between psychological treatments, and new and better diagnostic concepts.
This book incorporates new and controversial ideas that will stimulate discussion regarding the benefits of early, need-adapted treatment. I will be of interest to psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals interested in psycho-social approaches to psychosis.
