SUMMARY ´ NATURAL-TREATMENT.CO.UK ☆ E. Fuller Torrey

D fifth edition includes the latest research findings on what causes the disease as well as information about the newest drugs for treatment and answers to the uestions most often asked by families consumers and provider. Although written as a practical information manual and succeeding very well it turns out to also be always compassionate at times sorrowful and many times scathing towards the insanity of the mental health care system in the US He intersperses uotations from literature from poetry and best from accounts from schizophrenics I couldn't put it downI didn't expect to cry while reading a manual Or laugh he has some decidedly strong opinions about organizations psychiatrists and theories example re American Psychiatric AssociationMost exhortations produce occasional spasms of institutional guilt resulting in study groups or conferences but little else Therefore most of the the time the APA continues to act simply as a union for the nation's privately practicing psychiatrists As such it is no likely to provide leadership for individuals with schizophrenia than is the Brotherhood of Teamsters or the AFL CIO

Surviving Schizophrenia A Manual for Families Patients and ProvidersMuch praised and important book describes the nature causes symptoms treatment and course of schizophrenia and also explores living with it from both the patient and the family's point of view This new completely update. A great resource if you know someone with schizophrenia Torrey explains how despite over two centuries of medical research this disease is still highly misunderstood and can be very difficult to navigate The overview provided and list of further resources helps meet this need for information which can be a life saver relieving stress and guilt and building confidence and even hope Based on personal experience I don't agree with his interpretation of cause as independent of stress and recreational drugs but still think it is a great first book for those of us just learning about this illness
