Item description for Relapse Prevention in Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses: A Treatment Manual and Workbook for Therapist and Client (Relapse Prevention Manuals series) by John Sorensen...
Modeled after the acclaimed format, style, and simplicity of the author's earlier work, this combination package of manual and workbook attempts to integrate rigorous and accountable relapse prevention work with the fundamental goal of psychosis sufferers—to take control over their lives and illness to the greatest extent possible. Schizophrenia and other psychoses are often debilitating, recurring, and severe illnesses with significant secondary consequences, such as suicidal behavior, physical health problems, social disability, and substance abuse. Even between acute episodes, impairments in occupational and social functioning can further compound the problem. Utilizing a highly-endorsed method, the therapist follows the script laid out in the manual and establishes a supportive relationship with the client, who completes the workbook with a personal profile of the illness. The workbook then acts as an informant for friends, family, and co-workers about the client's condition, which can help prevent the client's future relapses into acute states of mind.

RELAPSE PREVENTION AND OTHER PSYCHOSIS: A TREATMENT MANUAL AND WORKBOOK FOR THERAPIST AND CLIENTS Feb 16, 2008
I used this workbook with my in-patient population. I found this material really good to use. The manual is clear, gives excellent suggestions for teaching this work. The assignments in the workbook are useful. The only thing I caution is that there are several pages that look a like and there is nothing that helps the patient understand what needs to be different on those pages. Make sure as the therapist you have read and understand the manual before starting.
I have purchased this product twice and recommend to any therapist working with adult pschiatric pateints.
