Reviews

This is a useful book on schizophrenia spectrum disorders and important treatment modalities. Anyone who is involved in the care of patients with chronic psychosis would benefit from this excellent book. I highly recommend it. This edition written and edited by internationally recognized clinician-researchers in the field, remains a valuable contribution to the psychiatric literature."; Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, in Doody's Book Reviews, April 2017; "[A] book intent on providing a broad overview of the topic in a very concise format (94 pages) [and on capturing] current thinking that spans conceptualization, diagnosis, etiology, and treatment. That it succeeds is reflected in topics that have been highlighted, an example being the discussion of the field's shift from a neuroprogressive model to one that underscores neurodevelopmental issues. Because so much material has to be covered in such a limited space, there is a compelling need for the writing to be organized, clear, and succinct. The authors are very successful in this regard, assisted by the use of multiple headings, subheadings, and highlighted points in the margins. This text, nicely laid out and reasonably priced, succinctly but effectively keeps us abreast of this topic and more recent advances."; Gary Remington, MD, PhD, FRCPC, University of Toronto, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Toronto, ON, in Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, 2018;The book succeeds as a useful resource to introduce the schizophrenia spectrum as a complex personal, clinical, and social phenomenon, [providing] an overview of the description, models, assessment, and treatment dimensions of schizophrenia as well as a range of current treatment approaches. The authors provide a concise foundation for understanding the schizophrenia spectrum both as a mental health policy construct and a psychiatric diagnosis. Coverage of theories and models of the schizophrenia spectrum provides an introduction to current etiologic understanding. Last, the authors provide a review of 16 diff erent treatments or treatment approaches. The is review is balanced, identifying supporting evidence along with fundamental limitations, and noting areas remaining for subsequent development. ;Bryan P. McCormick, PhD, Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Temple University, in American Journal of Psychiatric Rehabilitation, vol. 21, 2019
