Schizophrenia is the central problem in the sciences of the mind, not only for its etiological, psychopathological and clinical aspects, but also because of its implications for therapy and rehabilitation. In this volume the author describes a series of new scientific and clinical perspectives for schizophrenia influenced by cognitivist and constructivist approaches and informed by the logic of complexity and non-linear, dynamic systems. The author delineates a new complex theory of the brain and a procedural theory of the mind, founded on the concept of the modular brain and the coalitional mind. Subsequently, the author develops a multi-factorial conceptualization of the etiological dynamic and an original, complex, and evolutionary perspective concerning the psychotic condition, which has been redefined, in this case, as Entropy of the Mind or Phrenentropy. In conclusion, the author illustrates an innovative, integrated protocol, denominated Negative Entropy, for the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with schizophrenia.

About the Author:

Tullia Scrimalli is a physician, psychologist and psychotherapist. He specialized in psychiatry at the University of Milan. He was one of the pioneers in the development of cognitive psychotherapy in Italy, publishing his first research in 1976 and obtaining the first Chair of Cognitive Therapy at the University of Catania in 1980. He teaches this subject both at the ALETAIA School, of which is the Director (and which was founded by him in 1990) and at the University of Catania, where he is a researcher and teacher.

Review:

'In this major volume Scrimali offers an integrative biopsychosocial perspective. He focuses on the biological markers and the clinical psychopathology and psychophysiology of the disorder. He examines the cognitive and behavioural manifestations of the disorder in a clear and understandable manner. The sections on assessment and treatment deserve special attention. The assessment chapter describes the neuropsychological, psychophysiological, and family issues that are the essence of schizophrenia. Writing as a psychiatrist, neuropsychologist, and clinical researcher, Scrimali describes the problems and then describes the treatment. With a goal of helping the patient with schizophrenia toward more effective coping and enhanced function, Scrimali also takes a rehabilitation focus that describes the social, family, and individual work that must be coordinated in the best interest of the patient.'- Arthur Freeman, Dean, School of Professional Studies, University of Saint Francis, Fort Wayne, Indiana, from the Preface
