The behaviour of a person suffering from a mental disorder usually has a significant impact on the quality of life and the mental health of the other family members.

Families and Mental Disorder provides a current and comprehensive picture of

  • available evidence about the specific characteristics of the burden on the families
  • the coping strategies which increase or decrease this burden
  • family interventions of proven efficacy
  • what should be said and what should not be said to the relatives of people with the various conditions
For some topics, such as Families of Patients with a Severe Anxiety Disorder, Families of Patients with an Eating Disorder or Families of a Child with a Mental Disorder, this is the first book offering a complete perspective.

Families and Mental Disorder will be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals.
