Specifically designed for people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, their care-givers, friends and family, Coping with Schizophrenia is an empowering book that sensitively combines factual information with advice and encouragement.
Drawing on the very latest research as well as their own extensive clinical experience, doctors Jones and Hayward present the facts of the condition, including definitions and symptoms, the truth (or not) behind common myths, advice on dealing with professionals, medication and its effectiveness, the benefits of cognitive therapy, and much, much more. The result is a uniquely informative and positive book that covers an enormous range of issues and offers those living with schizophrenia the opportunity to play a decisive role in managing and maintaining their own well-being.
"A sympathetic and sensible book which not only removes much of the fear, loneliness and stigma that surround schizophrenia but gives up to date information and a fascinating overview. It also gives practical encouragement to those faced with such a diagnosis, and their families will find here new strategies and therapies with which to combat this cruel illness and survive."
