Reviews

"I am delighted to bring to the attention of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals across the world the work reflected in this book, as I am convinced that these approaches with their humanistic core have much to offer for upgrading person-centered clinical care for people experiencing psychoses."- Professor Juan E. Mezzich, M.D., Ph.D., President of the World Psychiatric Association

"A wonderful book that should be read by all professionals that deal with schizophrenia! As a necessary counterweight to the current biology-dominated and drug-centred practice, it offers an almost complete anthology of the worldwide developments of truly integrative psycho-socio-biological approaches and their psychotherapeutic consequences on the individual, familial and socio-environmental level." - Luc Ciompi, Professor Emeritus of Social Psychiatry, University of Basel, Switzerland.

"An extremely useful book and one that represents a growing interest in psychological and social approaches to improving the lives of individuals living with, and recovering from, the most severe and misunderstood of the serious mental illnesses--namely schizophrenia. As an encyclopedia of previous and current attempts to intervene in social and psychological ways in schizophrenia, [this book] is unparalleled." -Larry Davidson in PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 54, December 2009
