  • Description

    A growing body of both research and clinical experience confirms that intervening early in the progression of psychotic symptoms may delay or even prevent the movement toward more serious psychiatric illness. Young people at clinical high risk of developing psychosis, or those with a recent onset of psychosis, can benefit from a range of tailored interventions each emphasizing recovery and return to functioning.

    Achieving recovery and remission for people experiencing psychosis requires a multifaceted, team-based response, and it is precisely this sort of a holistic approach Intervening Early in Psychosis: A Team Approach provides. With expert guidance on tailoring care to the needs of young people experiencing a first-episode psychosis, this book—the first of its kind to focus on the U.S. health care environment—begins with an overview of the history of early psychosis services in the United States and the development of coordinated specialty care (CSC) services.

    Clinical case examples then illustrate the application of a range of evidence-based interventions, from the psychological and psychosocial—including cognitive-behavioral therapy for psychosis and supported employment and education—to peer, family, lifestyle, and technological interventions. All of these interventions are examined in individual detail, but it is the effectiveness of the interplay between them that the authors of Intervening Early in Psychosis emphasize. The collaboration of multidisciplinary stakeholders, including licensed therapists, medical providers, employment and education specialists, and peer specialists, is central to the success of the multimodal care model outlined in the guide and is examined at length.

    This interdisciplinary approach is underpinned by recovery-oriented language that focuses on healing and recovery rather than disability and illness management. The book also provides an individual and family perspective on the lived experience of psychosis that underscores the importance of engaging clients and their support network in a philosophy of shared decision making.

    With additional chapters that discuss advocacy issues and policy considerations when establishing CSC services and the importance of reducing the duration of untreated psychosis to optimize clinical and functional outcomes, this is the most comprehensive resource for clinicians, case workers, peer and vocational specialists, family members, and anyone else interested in expanding their knowledge of the early identification and treatment of individuals with psychotic disorders.

    Grounded in research but illustrated with clinical experience and the voice of the consumer, this book brings to life the treatment of a first episode psychosis. The book takes a broad and detailed approach from policy and public health to individual and family engagement and treatment. The theme of the book is recovery, and the focus on improving outcomes permeates the various chapters. This book makes a significant contribution to the field of early intervention.—Donald Addington, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Calgary, Member, Mathison Centre for Mental Health Research and Education


    Based on a wealth of clinical and research experience this book is an invaluable resource for clinicians and agencies who are all working towards early intervention in psychosis with transitional age youth. The authors offer a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of early intervention including both young people who may be at serious risk of developing psychosis as well as those who are experiencing a first episode. This highly user-friendly text offers case descriptions, often step-by step instructions for assessments and interventions and excellent guidelines for a team-based approach to early intervention for psychosis.—Jean Addington, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta Canada
