Psychotherapies for the Psychoses

Author(s): John Gleeson & Eoin Killackey


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 psychoses; Global perspectives on psychosocial approaches for psychoses; and Integrating psychotherapeutic thinking and practice into 'real world' settings."
