Psychotic illness is managed and treated with best results when it is recognized at the earliest stages of a person developing the disorder, or when that person is identified as being at high risk of doing so. Describing a stage-specific model highlighting the risk, the clinical and biological factors present during the development of the illness, and the best treatments available for each of these stages, this new edition will guide practitioners and researchers in the adoption of carefully planned management strategies fully integrating treatment with prevention. Issues such as resistance to drugs and vocational recovery are covered, with related topics such as service organization and community education. This will be essential reading for all those involved in the care of people with early psychotic illness, or those responsible for the organization of services.

Review quote

'... not just an updated version of the first edition ... it is a near-total reworking of the entire book ... a superb book, and every clinician who encounters patients at risk for psychosis or suffering from first episode psychosis should be familiar with the material it presents.' Doody's 'The Recognition and Management of Early Psychosis: A Preventive Approach (Second Edition) presents the field of early detection and early intervention in an interesting and informative format. ... It is undoubtedly a comprehensive source of information with many references to guide further reading and may also be a useful teaching tool for college and university courses on this topic. ... This book is a clear and approachable presentation of early detection and early intervention, and I recommend it strongly.' The Journal of Psychological Medicine
