Summary
The central issue and the organizing feature of this book may be essentially framed as follows: What can be done about the treatment of patients in a given mental hospital with approximately one-half of its population classified as chronic schizophrenics and where there is a minimum of medical, psychological, and nursing personnel? Our plan, which is suggested by the ordering of this volume, was to have formal papers presented which both described some theoretical notions or viewpoint about schizophrenia and either a definite treatment procedure or the logical implications for a therapeutic method. There was also to be counter-discussion after these presentations. The broadest aim then was to conceptualize definitive practical treatments for the relatively large, public mental institution. The first section includes those papers dealing with the broad nature of the problem; the second section, still somewhat general, is more precise in its theoretical formulations and offers some clinical applications; the third division is highly specific in its clinical dealings and is generally concerned with empirical findings and pragmatic techniques. The final section is an attempt to critically examine and summarize the aforementioned sections. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
