Description

Discover the importance of family in the treatment of schizophrenia!

Family Involvement in Treating Schizophrenia: Models, Essential Skills, and Process is a vital resource for developing clinical skills and programs designed to increase family involvement in the treatment of schizophrenia. The book is a “hands-on” learning tool to be used as a broad overview of many intervention models and/or for a more focused look at a particular model with details of its use, implementation, and effectiveness. Dr. James A. Marley presents case studies and vignettes of each intervention model in action, highlighting specific techniques and skills. He also examines self-help and family advocacy programs, and addresses professional issues that have a direct impact on the provision of family services.

Family Involvement in Treating Schizophrenia: Models, Essential Skills, and Process examines the practical application of family therapy when working with families coping with schizophrenia. The book addresses the importance of family involvement, the different types of intervention models that best serve the family, the founding principles behind the major intervention models, how to design and implement the right model, and how family issues impact service delivery. It includes recommendations for additional reading and listings of related Internet resources. Among the therapies examined include:

  • psychodynamic
  • Bowenian
  • experiential
  • structural
  • strategic
  • systemic/Milan
  • cognitive-behavioral
  • narrative
  • solution-focused
  • multiple families

Family Involvement in Treating Schizophrenia: Models, Essential Skills, and Process is a primary source of information for clinicians and students that's equally effective as a professional resource and as a textbook. The book is invaluable as an aid to developing sensitivity to the special needs of families coping with this debilitating disorder.
