About the Authors
  • Although schizophrenia is very difficult to diagnose in the young, early treatment is now thought to improve outcome. Recent research suggests that early onset schizophrenia has developmental precursors, making it difficult to distinguish from a number of other developmental disorders. In this timely book, an international team of psychiatrists, psychotherapists, and psychologists give an up-to-date review of the latest findings in the diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia in children and adolescents. It gives a comprehensive account of the current state of knowledge and the therapeutic options available to clinicians. The authors examine the disorder from developmental and clinical perspectives, focusing on diagnosis, etiology, therapy, and rehabilitation. This volume is essential reading for all mental health professionals who treat young people with schizophrenia.

    • A comprehensive and practical review of the latest research findings
    • Developmental and clinical focus on the problems of diagnosis and treatment
    • Written by an international team of expert psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists
