Filipe Leão Miranda

Andrew Lotterman's Psychotherapy for People Diagnosed with Schizophrenia: Specific Techniques is a very important book and a fundamental introductory manual for those working psychotherapeutically with severely disturbed patients. The book is also an important update and revision of the author's previous book, Specific Techniques for Psychotherapy of Schizophrenic Patients from 1996 published by the International Universities Press. As mentioned, the book may well be used as an introductory manual for those working psychotherapeutically with people suffering from Schizophrenic Disorders, but also with people suffering from other psychotic conditions, since it condenses in its more than 200 pages a vast array of highly useful knowledge regarding the psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapeutic treatment techniques. But at the same time, the book is a splendid companion to those who have experience in this kind of treatment and want to reflect and elaborate on the work done, furthering the knowledge and depth of the experience accumulated over the years. The new edition brings a revised text and important updates, especially regarding the biological and psychological research on psychotic conditions; delves into the debate and controversy concerning diagnosis; and presents new chapters concerning the treatment of paranoia and two salient clinical syndromes highlighted by the author (“The Shattered Self and the Wish to be a Messiah”). A considerable number of clinicians will easily recognize these syndromes and find the author's ideas helpful.
