Schizophrenia is one of the most disabling mental illnesses and is also highly prevalent, occurring in approximately 1% of the population and affecting both men and women equally. The disorder has a typical onset of between 15 and 35 years of age and is characterised by impairments in reality, most commonly hallucinations and delusions. It is a highly complex condition and is often confused with other mental disorders such as bipolar disorder.

This new edition in the Oxord Psychiaty Library series will cover new DSM-5 diagnostic criteria to reflect new data and include new longitudinal studies on psychiatric and medical co-morbidity, Genetic and environmental factors, new drug therapies, adherence and the role of depots, new advances in psychosocial therapies (CBT, ACT, and cognitive remediation), and includes an updated and expanded appendix.

This is designed to be a user-friendly and practical guide, outlining the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of patients with schizophrenia. Co-authored by two global experts on the management of patients with psychosis, this pocketbook will serve as a useful guide for psychiatrists, trainees, psychiatric specialist nurses, and interested general practitioners.
