With expert guidance on developing specialty care service models for young people experiencing first-episode psychosis, Intervening Early in Psychosis: A Team Approach offers a multimodal approach that aims for recovery and remission. The first book of its kind to focus on the U.S. health care environment, it provides a detailed examination of a range of evidence-based treatments, from the psychological and psychosocial to peer, family, lifestyle, and technological interventions, all punctuated by clinical case examples. Special emphasis is placed on the effectiveness of the interplay between these individual interventions, as well as the collaboration between multidisciplinary partners, including licensed therapists, medical providers, peers, and vocational specialists. An individual and family perspective on the experience of living with psychosis complements this interdisciplinary care model, underscoring the importance of engaging clients and their support network within a philosophy of shared decision making. With additional chapters that discuss advocacy issues and policy considerations when establishing coordinated specialty care services, Intervening Early in Psychosis is the most comprehensive resource available for those interested in expanding their knowledge of the early identification and treatment of adolescents and young adults with psychotic disorders.
