In Loss of Self in Psychosis and CBT: Innovations in Theory and Practice Simon Jakes takes a critical look at contemorary approaches to the psychology of psychosis. In doing so, he explores how these vastly different approaches, as well as our numerous conceptualisations of schizophrenia, work to reduce the effectiveness of CBT as a treatment.

Four different psychological approaches to psychosis are examined in first part of this book, as well as the development of CBT for psychosis and the theory behind this. In the second part, he describes the therapy of some clients and suggests that incorporating ideas from some of the different theories of psychosis in the same treatment may be beneficial.

Using extended examples from clinical practice over the past 20 years to illuminate his theories, Loss of Self in Psychosis and CBT will prove to be thought-provoking reading for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals working with this client group.
