About this book


Handbook of Treatment-resistant Schizophrenia is a concise review of treatment-resistant schizophrenia’s definition, measurement tools, adherence issues, substance abuse, optimal dosing, clinician–patient relationships, and current management approaches. The book was originally commissioned with the intention of creating a comprehensive text focusing on treatment-resistant schizophrenia and its management. The book explores many aspects of the background and practice- and research-based evidence for treating this complex subset of schizophrenia, including psychopharmacological, somatic, and nonpharmacological treatment approaches. While exploring the various therapies for treatment-resistant schizophrenia, Dr Citrome also emphasizes the importance of building strong and trusting relationships between patients and their clinicians so the clinician can best manage their patient’s adherence and overall treatment.
