Contains guidelines and recommendations-in tabular form for quick reference-on patient evaluation and optimal treatment for long-term care!

Based on evidence from recent systematic clinical research studies, this comprehensive reference provides the latest information on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of schizophrenia-highlighting modern diagnostic tools and current therapeutic advances for the prevention of hallucinations, thought disorganization, and negative symptoms.

Emphasizes family education and psychoeducation, and community-centered treatments for patient rehabilitation and adherence to management programs!

With consideration of the chronic nature of the disease, Schizophrenia details
  • the effect of substance abuse and drug dependence on rehabilitation and treatment
  • second-generation antipsychotic drugs, including olanzapine, quetiapine, risperiodone, and ziprasidone
  • contemporary strategies to prevent depression and suicide
  • patterns of patient compliance and noncompliance
  • violence and forensic hospitalization
    With over 600 useful references, Schizophrenia is an essential source for psychiatrists and psychopharmacologists, clinical neurologists and neuropsychopharmacologists, psychologists, primary care physicians, social workers, nurses, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
