Traditionally, people with psychotic symptoms have been treated with anti-psychotic or neuroleptic drugs. While this approach is beneficial for many, there are others for whom it is problematic. Recent recognition of this has led to the development of effective complementary treatments of a specifically psychological nature. In this volume, leading researchers and practitioners provide a comprehensive overview for all those undergoing related training in psychology, psychiatry, nursing and social work. The book provides a general background to cognitive treatment, and also discusses specific uses of the therapy in treating those who have hallucinations, delusions and schizophrenia. Cognitive behaviour therapy has become a well known treatment for depression. In this edited collection, practitioners show how the therapy can also be useful in the treatment of psychotic disorders as an alternative to drug treatment. The latest advances in research and treatment techniques are presented here in one volume.
