Schizophrenia is one of the most traumatic psychiatric conditions both for the patient and his family. It also suffers from frequent misinterpretation by the popular media. The disorder usually manifests itself through significant periods of hallucinations and bizarre delusions, but patients are not generally violent, and do have periods of remission. However, it is often difficult for them to maintain a regular lifestyle and relationships at home and at work, and many schizophrenics end up homeless on the streets of our cities.
This book provides a concise and up-to-date account of the underlying causes and symptoms of schizophrenia. The authors are psychiatrists with many years of experience in the treatment of schizophrenia. They look at all the current treatment options, both medical and psychological, together with likely side effects and the problem of compliance with treatment. The role of the family and the community in caring for schizophrenic patients is also considered. This book will provide a welcome source of information both for the families of schizophrenics and for the medical personnel involved in their care. [via]
