This book provides an overview of current innovative treatments (cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy, compliance therapy, and cognitive deficits remediation), and describes how the theoretical understanding of some of the psychological factors which maintain symptoms can lead to further advances. As well as evaluating cost effectiveness studies, the book describes the pathway to an exemplary economic analysis of psychological treatments.
