Using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to improve outcomes and medication adherence for patients with schizophrenia or other psychoses a€“ essential reading for psychiatrists and other mental health care providers. An exclusive focus on biological models of schizophrenia and on antipsychotic drugs for the treatment of schizophrenia or other psychoses is increasingly being recognized as a barrier to effective treatment. Written by an expert team of psychiatrists and psychologists with wide experience of combining drug and psychological treatments, this book provides a practically oriented and clear overview of how to use CBT techniques in mental health services that have traditionally emphasized medication management.
