Abstract

The Hamburg Schizophrenia and CFI Project evolved from an attempt by various academic and nonacademic members of the Psychiatric University Clinic to develop more reliable and effective means for predictive assessment and treatment of younger, mainly first- or second-breakdown schizophrenic patients at high risk for a chronic course of illness. We decided to work with younger schizophrenics as there had been much less systematic treatment research performed with them than the more chronic conditions.
