About this Book

[There has been an] extraordinary shift in how we understand and treat psychosis, none more so than in the arena of Early Intervention (EI) bringing with it new hope for young people with emerging psychosis and their families.
From the introduction to the book

Centred around the Early Psychosis Declaration (EPD), this book explores the declaration's five themes through contributions from a sizeable number of mental health practitioners, service-users and carers. It is designed to help those working with people experiencing psychosis at an early stage of illness to develop and implement effective early intervention skills, enabling them to examine and refine their practice. Most importantly, the book is a practical guide to delivering early intervention strategies with a unique focus on recovery.

  • Evidence-based
  • Edited by an team with a wealth of clinical and research experience
  • Suitable for qualified practitioners from all disciplines working in the Early Intervention field, including mental health nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists and lecturer/practitioners
