Interventions for Schizophrenia

by Emma Williams

This step-by-step manual presents a flexible, five-module intervention programme to help clients with schizophrenia understand their illness, recognise, monitor and cope with their symptoms and reduce the impact of the illness on their lives.

Full Description:   

  • Using a broadly psychoeducational approach, the book draws on recent advances in the psychological understanding and management of schizophrenia, such as cognitive-behavioural techniques, to enable people with schizophrenia to cope with specific symptoms such as auditory hallucinations.
  • The detailed individual session guides include session plans, handouts and education material. The book also includes a full description of the range of available assessment tools, their administration and interpretation. Such assessments are useful in monitoring individual change and in assessing treatment effectiveness.
  • Aimed at mental health professionals, including clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers and occupational therapists, the programme can be used with individuals or small groups in a variety of settings, such as secure hospitals, general psychiatric hospitals, hostels, group homes, day centres and the client's own home.

    As approximately one person in a hundred is likely to receive a diagnosis of schizophrenia in their lifetime, this practical photocopiable manual is a valuable resource for anyone working with this client group.
