A Manual for Families, Consumers and Providers.
Since its first publication in 1983, 'Surviving Schizophrenia' has become the standard reference book on the disease and has helped thousands of patients, their families, and mental health professionals. In clear language, this much-praised and important book describes the nature, causes, symptoms, treatment, and course of schizophrenia. It also explores living with the disease from both the patient and the family's point of view.
This new, completely updated fourth edition includes the latest findings on causes of the disease; information about the newest drugs for treatment; and answers to the questions most often asked by families, consumers, and providers.
