"The Editors have provided a useful and well-organized source of information and discussions on the varied and new treatment modalities. The attempt to relate the different treatment modalities to the different phases of the psychotic disorder is refreshing... this book [offers] valuable insights into areas which provoke a great deal of thought and further debate." - Lyn Chua, ISPS Newsletter
"This book has managed successfully to combine a great spectrum of different thinking... I thoroughly recommend it as inspiring optimism in a climate increasingly dominated by short-term or reductionist treatments." - Chris Brogan - Regional Department of Psychotherapy, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK
"This book challenges the reader to think again about preconceptions of psychotic illness and as such would appeal to those working with such patients." - Rachel Upthegrove, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Trust, Early Intervention Service, UK
