Summary

This new edition of Schizophrenia and Related Syndromes has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide an authoritative overview of the subject, including new chapters on the neurodevelopmental hypothesis, cognitive neuropsychology, and schizophrenia and personality.

Peter McKenna guides the reader through a vast amount of literature on schizophrenia plus related syndromes such as paranoia and schizoaffective disorder, providing detailed and in-depth, but highly readable, accounts of the key areas of research. The book describes the clinical features of schizophrenia and its causes and treatment, covering subjects such as:

  • Aetiological factors in schizophrenia
  • The neurodevelopmental theory of schizophrenia
  • Neuroleptic drug treatment
  • Paraphrenia and paranoia
  • Childhood schizophrenia, autism and Asperger's syndrome

Schizophrenia and Related Syndromes will prove invaluable for psychiatrists and clinical psychologists in training and in practice. It will also be a useful guide for mental health professionals and researchers working in related fields.
