Product overview

This book draws together advances in the understanding, assessment and treatment of stress, negative symptoms, social anxiety, OCD, PTSD and mood disturbance in people with a diagnosis of psychosis, providing a practical guide for clinicians. CBT for psychosis draws on the principles and interventions developed for anxiety and depression and adapts these to treat psychotic symptoms. CBT for schizophrenia is now widely accepted as an effective treatment in the reduction of psychotic symptoms. A review of findings led the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to recommend offering CBT to all people with schizophrenia. Content includes: the role of stress in psychosis; negative symptoms – emotional, motivational and behavioural deficits; social anxiety disorder; obsessional compulsive disorder; post-traumatic stress disorder; mood disturbance in psychosis; and client handouts. It features: 174 pages, perfect bound (246 x 171mm).
