Schizophrenia is heterogeneous with respect to its symptoms, course, and outcome. So, too, are the individuals afflicted with it, with respect to their vulnerabilities, assets, and needs.

Instead, as illustrated by the variety of therapeutic interventions described in this volume, the treatment of schizophrenia requires a broad approach using multiple modalities.
