9780199974443: Schizophrenia and Its Treatment: Where Is the Progress?

This volume aims to explain why, despite profound advances in psychological science and neuroscientific analyses of schizophrenia, outcomes for the disorder have changed little over the past 100 years. More specifically, the book provides a critical analysis of the limiting role on treatment development of diagnostic classifications and views of the disorder as caused by a core pathology, and instead promotes the idea of individually tailored, multimodal treatment for distinct disorder features (e.g., positive symptoms, cognitive deficits). Each of these features of schizophrenia may or may not be present in different individuals with the same diagnosis. These features may also bear little functional relationship to one another. This aim is achieved through a critical integration of contemporary psychological scientific and neuroscientific analyses of schizophrenia, as well as research on psychological and somatic treatments. Historical perspectives on diagnosis and treatment are considered as well.

Review:


"This monograph represents an enormous amount of scholarship covering admirably the historical, scientific and humanistic problems posed by schizophrenia... In short this is an exceptional work likely to be of broad and lasting interest to many different kinds of readers."
--Paul Lysaker, Clinical Psychologist at the Richard L Roudebush VA Medical Center and Professor of Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychiatry Indiana University School of Medicine


"This is an excellent, interesting book that covers a vast amount of material in an accessible, informative, and lively fashion."
--Kim T. Mueser, Professor of Occupational Therapy, Boston University, and Executive Director of the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation


"Schizophrenia and Its Treatment provides an excellent resource for grasping the history of schizophrenia. More specifically, the book highlights that the past 100 years of minimal
progress is due to nonspecificity in diagnoses, theories, and treatment."
--PsycCRITIQUES
