About the Authors
  • We all think about the environment when treating mental illness, but we regard it as secondary to helping symptoms and behaviour. Nidotherapy is the collaborative and systematic process of changing the physical, social and personal environment for people who have failed to respond fully to conventional treatments. It can be given by therapists unqualified in other specific treatment interventions and is highly cost effective, and so offers great advantages in health services constrained by cost pressures. This new edition has been fully revised, and includes new chapters on the principles of nidotherapy, the evidence for its effectiveness, its use in intellectual disability and those of limited mental capacity, the skills needed for nidotherapy, the economic benefits and common misconceptions. This comprehensive guide shows how nidotherapy can be used across the range of mental disorders and gives evidence for its value.

    • The only available book on the subject, this is a vital guide to the subject of nidotherapy
    • Presents an excellent example of integrated health and social care - there is excellent evidence that nidotherapy saves money for health services

    Peter Tyrer is Emeritus Professor of Community Psychiatry at the Centre for Psychiatry, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London. Peter Tyrer has been practising nidotherapy for over twenty years and feels its advantages should be more widely known. When he received the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2015 nidotherapy was recognised as a key advance, and its spread to other countries of the world, particularly Sweden, has demonstrated its general applicability.
