Schizophrenia is one of the most traumatic psychiatric disorders, both for the affected person and their family. It also carries an unfortunate stigma and suffers from frequent misinterpretation by the popular media. The disorder usually manifests itself through significant periods of hallucinations, bizarre delusions, and disorganized behaviour, but the individuals who suffer from this brain disorder are not generally violent, and do have periods of remission. However it is often difficult for these individuals to maintain a regular lifestyle and relationships at home and at work, and many individuals with schizophrenia end up unable to live independently or, worse, homeless. This new edition in the popular Facts series provides a concise and up-to-date account of the underlying causes and symptoms of schizophrenia, as well as current theories about the disorder. The authors look at all the current treatment options, both medical and psychological, together with likely side-effects and the problem of compliance with treatment. The role of the family and the community in caring for individuals with schizophrenia is also considered. The authors are experienced psychiatrists and psychologists with many years' experience in the treatment and study of schizophrenia. This book will provide a welcome source of information for individuals with schizophrenia, their family members, and those involved in caring for them.

This is a concise, authoritative review of what is important in the understanding and management of the distressing condition of schizophrenia. Although schizophrenia has been recognized for 100 years, our knowledge of its cause, and thus our approach to its treatment, has been limited. Today, thanks, largely to new genetic and brain imaging techniques, our understanding of the symptoms and cognitive deficits is increasing, so illuminating the underlying causes of schizophrenia. New drug and non-drug treatments are becoming avilable, allowing the first real advances in treatment in 30 years.
