The only practical and easy book for clinicians on the prevention of psychosis. This disorder has only recently become the subject of interventions using cognitive behaviour therapy. It is recognised that intervention soon after diagnosis appears to have the best chance of success. "Can schizophrenia be prevented? French and Morrison, major investigators in the landmark study demonstrating that schizophrenia can be prevented, provide specific details about the adaptation of standard cognitive therapy to the treatment of individuals at high risk of developing this disorder. In a clear readable style, they guide the reader through the identification of high-risk individuals, crucial cognitive behavioral strategies and, above all, relapse prevention. This book is a must for clinicians dealing with high-risk adolescents and young adults." --Aaron T. Beck, M.D., University Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania. "French and Morrison's theoretical framework is coherent and well articulated and brings to bear cognitive and interpersonal factors that we know to be active in established psychosis. The therapy they describe has been validated in a well controlled randomised trial showing that psychosis can be prevented, or at least delayed, in a substantial majority of those at risk of transition to psychosis." Professor Max Birchwood, Director, Early Intervention Service, Northern Birmingham Mental Health Trust and University of Birmingham. This book will be of use to all qualified and trainee practitioners, such as clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapists and nurses. It will also appeal to students, lecturers and researchers.
