Books on psychosis

Post by Obti » Tue Nov 03, 2015 8:33 pm

Can anyone recomend a good (up to date) book on psychosis? Preferably something that's quite broad looking at aetiology, outcomes and treatment options ect; although anything specific that's highly recomended is welcome.

It depends what you're into, but if you like a critical stance, check out Richard Bentall :)

Definitely seconding Richard Bentall. Also, I would recommend 'Understanding Psychosis and Schizophrenia', edited by Anne Cooke, with contributions from numerous clinicians and researchers including Bentall.

It is not a book but certainly a valuable resource and in my humble opinion, it is a good place to start.
