Evidence-based interventions are increasingly being required by third-party payors. Edited by leaders in the field and featuring contributions by both seasoned clinicians and newer practitioners with expertise in relevant, cutting-edge evidence-based practices, Psychosocial Treatment of Schizophrenia is an easy-to-use and essential resource for practitioners and students. This book helps busy practitioners implement evidence-based practices by providing the "how-to" and "what now" rather than using the typical academic approach.
