Forms of Schizophrenia Publication date : January 1, 2004

Besides providing an update on practical and administrative information, this new edition of Catherine Tobin’s book covers recent medical progress in the treatment of schizophrenia:
- Improved treatment of schizophrenia has facilitated relations between psychiatrists and patients.
- The creation of patients’ associations has enabled persons suffering from schizophrenia to speak up and to be regarded as individuals.
- Families have formed organisations. As a result they feel less isolated and less powerless, and prejudice around the disease has diminished.
This book is a gold mine of information about recent developments concerning schizophrenia.
