Handbook of Treatment-resistant Schizophrenia is a concise review of treatment-resistant
schizophrenia’s definition, measurement tools, adherence issues, substance
abuse, optimal dosing, clinician–patient relationships, and current management
approaches. The book was originally commissioned with the intention of creating
a comprehensive text focusing on treatment-resistant schizophrenia and its management.
The book explores many aspects of the background and practice- and research-based
evidence for treating this complex subset of schizophrenia, including psychopharmacological,
somatic, and nonpharmacological treatment approaches. While exploring the various
therapies for treatment-resistant schizophrenia, Dr Citrome also emphasizes
the importance of building strong and trusting relationships between patients
and their clinicians so the clinician can best manage their patient’s
adherence and overall treatment.
