Surviving Schizophrenia: A Manual for Families, Consumers, and Providers

Since its first publication in 1983, Surviving Schizophrenia has become the standard reference book on the disease and has helped thousands of patients, their families and mental health professionals. In clear language, this much–praised and important book describes the nature, causes, symptoms, treatment and course of schizophrenia and also explores living with it from both the patient and the family’s point of view. This new, completely updated fifth edition includes the latest research findings on what causes the disease as well as information about the newest drugs for treatment and answers to the questions most often asked by families, consumers and providers.

A classic in this area, and although a bit dated even in this updated edition, still a worthwhile book to own or read if you or a loved one is grappling with schizophrenia.

Softcover, 544 pages.
