Can biological and psychological interventions be integrated in the treatment of psychosis?
Throughout the world, access to psychotherapeutic and psychosocial treatments for the psychoses varies significantly, with many people diagnosed with psychotic disorders receiving only medication as treatment. Psychotherapies for the Psychoses considers ways that this gap can be bridged through theoretical, cultural and clinical integration.
The theme of integration offers possibilities for trainees and experienced mental health professionals from diverse orientations and cultural perspectives to strengthen alliances for tackling the gap in availability of treatments. In this volume contributors discuss:Theoretical integration across the psychological therapies for psychosesGlobal perspectives on psychosocial approaches for psychosesIntegrating psychotherapeutic thinking and practice into 'real world' settings.
Psychotherapies for the Psychoses explores different approaches from a variety of theoretical perspectives, providing significant encouragement for mental health practitioners to broaden the range of humane psychotherapeutic possibilities for people suffering from the effects of psychosis.

It is an important book to be strongly recommended both for trainees, to familiarise themselves with the literature, and for consultants in considering how to effect their integration within their current approach to psychosis." - Richard Lucas, British Journal of Psychiatry, Volume 194, January 2009
"Psychotherapy for the Psychoses is another important existential addition to the literature that explores a variety of different psychotherapeutic approaches to schizophrenia, providing encouragement, and a sophisticated instruction for practitioners in their work with psychotics." - Gregory M.
