Because schizophrenia is considered to be one of themost complicated and severe psychiatric disorders, this book has the goal of summarizing key issues of the illness, such as its presentation, frequency and age of onset, and diagnostic characteristics. It also contains informative chapters about the pathophysiology of schizophrenia, ranging frombrain development issues, genetics, and likely abnormalities in neurotransmitters.This book will give young professionals and those joining the field an excellent and accessible background to treatment.
