SchizophreniaUnknown - 2003
These books on diseases will be useful in the library for reports or in the classroom for science and health education courses. The authors discuss diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of each disease and look at possibilities for the future, including new research toward faster and better cures. Each book contains fascinating case studies, as well as questions and answers, a timeline, further information, chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading list, Internet resources, and an index.In this new addition to the Diseases and People series, authors Jane Phillips and David Ketelsen trace the history of schizophrenia from the ancient terms and diagnoses to the disorder we recognize today. In simple, clear language, they discuss current research trends and the treatment options that are available today. Attention to controversial issues, such as social stigma and medicating schizophrenia, sheds light on this often misunderstood disorder that affects approximately 1 percent of the population.
