    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Reviews the book "Treating Schizophrenia in the Prodromal Phase," by Alison Yung, Lisa Phillips, and Patrick D McGorry. The book is a useful and pragmatic guide to the field of early intervention, written by three of the researchers and clinicians to the fore-front of the field, based at the University of Melbourne in Australia. In essence, this book provides an overview of recent developments in pre-psychotic intervention and research; summarises conceptual issues that have informed recent developments; examines the interface between research and clinical practice; and places particular emphasis on the identification and management of ultra-high risk individuals. Throughout the text, the authors also address many other important and sometimes controversial issues in relation to early intervention, such as case-definition, ethical issues and research design. The book is logical, user-friendly and wellwritten, and is supported by detailed references and an excellent index. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
