'Concerned family members often ask me what they can do to help their loved one who is being treated for schizophrenia. For practical answers to this and many other questions, I will certainly recommend this clearly written, uplifting, and optimistic guide.' - David G. Kingdon, MD, University of Southampton School of Medicine, UK, author of bestselling Cognitive Therapy for Schizophrenia 'Too often, people with schizophrenia fall between the cracks of our system of care. This compassionate and comprehensive guide shows how you can strengthen your relationship with your ill family member and help him or her navigate the recovery journey. Dr. Mueser provides state-of-the-art tools for mastering the extraordinary challenges that schizophrenia poses.' - Ken Duckworth, MD, Medical Director, National Alliance for the Mentally Ill; Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School


Do people with schizophrenia ever get better? With the vast majority of those with the disorder dependent on their families for care, close relatives often grapple with that question. "The Complete Family Guide to Schizophrenia" inspires hope. Authors Kim T. Mueser, PhD, and Susan Gingerich, MSW, walk readers through a range of treatment and support options that can lead to a better life for the entire family. Individual chapters highlight special issues for parents, siblings, and partners, while other sections provide tips for dealing with problems including cognitive difficulties, substance abuse, and psychosis. Families learn to help their loved ones manage day-to-day tasks, develop friendships, and set personal life goals. Like no other book, this powerful, practical resource helps families stay connected to the individual behind the disorder so they can work together toward recovery.

Hope for schizophrenia 26. Juni 2008
Von John Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is book is just what our family was looking for when we learned that our son had been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. The biggest question my wife and I had was whether there was any hope for him. We were terrified by the diagnosis, and everything we'd heard about schizophrenia, and didn't know where to turn for help and accurate information. Fortunately, somebody at our local National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) chapter recommended this book, and it has made a huge difference to our family.

The Complete Family Guide delivers a consistent message that there is hope for people with schizophrenia, and introduces the concept of recovery from the illness as a way of helping people rebuild meaning and purpose in their lives. This was a new and refreshing angle for us, considering all of the negative attention that is given to schizophrenia in the media. The emphasis on recovery had an important effect on our attitude towards our son, and how our family has coped with his illness. We've learned how to work together, including our son, and not against each other, and this has made our family stronger and closer.

A great deal of information is provided in this book, but it is written in a practical, hands-on, easily used style. The first two sections of the book describe basic facts about schizophrenia, and how the illness affects family members. The section on how schizophrenia affects different family members was very helpful, since there are different chapters for parents, siblings, spouses, and children. This allowed my wife and I to read about the experiences of other parents, and for our son's sisters and brother to learn about how other siblings have been affected.

The remainder of the book, which is most of the book, describes how families can help a relative with schizophrenia. This includes summarizing the principles of treatment and how to get professionals to work with your family. We found the advice about dealing with common problems such as medication non-compliance, reducing stress in the family, and coping with the symptoms of hallucinations, lack of motivation, and substance abuse especially helpful with our son. We found the guidance in the final part of the book on helping a relative improve different areas of living to be very useful, including relationships, school, and work.

After searching for answers for so long, we finally hit a goldmine in this book. Instead of helplessly sitting by and watching our son's life spiral out of control, we began to learn how to work together, with him, and with his treatment team. It has been a lot of work, but we now know there is hope, a future for all of us, and that it's up to us what we want to make of it.

Sprawling and disorganized but with a wealth of information 10. März 2008
Von David Ross - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
With 480 pages and 30 chapters this book is both too long and too unfocused for easy use or reading. Inadvertently, this book and its numerous worksheets could encourage trying to do everything to the extent that it would certainly overwhelm both caregivers and the schizophrenic family member. There is an overwhelming wealth of information but the book fails to provide the wisdom and perspective of how to make use of this information. E Fuller Torrey's Surviving Schizophrenia: A Manual for Families, Patients, and Providers is by far a more insightful and better organized work which covers similar ground. Torrey's book is currently in its fifth edition (2006).

Several useful areas stand out in my opinion. These include encouraging regular medication adherence and symptom and side effect monitoring for relapse prevention and side effect management. Another important consideration is developing a relapse prevention plan. In addition the authors describe an active and non-confrontational problem solving approach involving the schizophrenic family member. Barring a crisis in progress these are probably the most important areas to focus on for most families.

There is an overwhelming volume of strategies and information contained here for families actively involved in the care of family members with schizophrenia. The good parts are sometimes obscured by repetition or useless generalities such as those in the section "Common Questions about Antipsychotic Medications". Similarly the short chapter on "Dealing with Stigma" fails to provide anything useful. A reading recommendation is that once you get a grasp of the strategy of having effective problem solving family meetings (Chapter 15) the numerous accounts of such meetings can be skimmed over in most cases.

A final critique is that the importance of supports such as family therapy and general "care for the caregiver" are not emphasized enough considering the potentially overwhelming difficulties of living with and caring for a mentally ill family member; granted some self care recommendations are scattered through the book. My recommendations to caregivers using this book are to be sure to take care of yourselves and to approach problems and this book one (part) at a time as they are most important to you and your family member. So yes buy the book but review or skim it and consult it as needed as problems or opportunities arise.

One excellent source of social support and education for families and the mentally ill themselves is NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). NAMI is a nonprofit, grassroots, self-help, support and advocacy organization of consumers, families, and friends of the mentally ill. See NAMI org for local support meetings in your area. The National Schizophrenia Foundation offers both online discussion forums that you may find useful and information on "Schizophrenia Support Groups and Related Resources" on their site.

A very complete guide to schizophrenia 17. Juni 2007
Von zhenya - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I found this book very helpful, and very practically useful. There is a good introduction to schizophrenia, explaining how the illness is diagnosed, symptoms, and related problems. Also in the introduction is a very interesting and hopeful chapter on recovery from schizophrenia, and another chapter on determining the treatment needs of a relative with this disorder.

What I liked most about the book is the practical information for family members about helping a relative cope with schizophrenia. The chapter on medications is outstanding, with detailed information about different types of medications, strategies for addressing side effects and adherence, evaluating the quality of someone's pharmacological treatment. I also liked the worksheets and easy-to-follow advice in chapters on coping with common problems like psychotic symptoms, cognitive problems, depression, and substance abuse. Last, the final section of the book is great--it addresses improving quality of life in areas like work, social relationships, and independent living skills.

I recommend this book to any family member with a relative with schizophrenia. In fact, it should be required reading for professionals as well!

for families dealing with Schizophrenia 15. März 2011
Von Doreen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a mother of a son with Schizophrenia, this is the most helpful book I have read. I live in the Netherlands and give Family to Family education and I have found the information clear, useful and easy to read.

Most books deal with facts and figures and the actual diagnoses and medication. This book gives helpful tips about solving problems, communication and managing stress. It also gives a realistic view of the recovery process and helps familys head off relapses.

I would also advise family members to give this book to everybody who has contact with the patient. I think its would help with lowering the stigma attached to this illness.

Priceless! 4. Dezember 2012
Von Alyce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you have a loved one with schizo-affective disorder with or without bipolar or schizophrenia, this book is a must own! Even if you have been to the NAMI classes, I highly recommend this book as a hands-on resource to reinforce and have more tools to help you with your loved one.I was able to skip some of the chapters dealing with medicinal non-compliance as this is not the case with my loved one. However, I found the chapters on what medications are being used and their side effects very useful. I found this book to be a priceless tool as a resource for dealing with my own feelings in finding out about my loved one, as well as extensive information on how to best help her be the best she can be and communicate with her in a way she understands. It is full of useful guides to determine how your loved one is feeling at any given time, who,when and how to call for help if needed or in an emergency, and questions you wouldn't otherwise think to ask your loved one about how the illness is affecting him/her. It also has a chapter for partners and siblings that I skimmed and found to be very resourceful. I picked this book up at my local library, and two hours later I was on Amazon ordering it. 480 pages packed into a 7" x 10" book...PRICELESS!The Complete Family Guide to Schizophrenia 1st (first) edition Text Only
