Experienced clinicians write assuming no prior knowledge of the area, covering all of the topics of necessary importance including:
* an introduction to cognitive theory and therapy
* difficulties in engagement and the therapeutic relationship
* how best to utilise homework with people who experience psychosis
* relapse prevention and management.
Illustrated by excerpts from therapy sessions, this book digests scientific evidence and theory but moreover provides clinicians with essential practical advice about how to best aid people with psychoses.
