Early Intervention in Psychotic Disorders is a collection of papers from an advanced research workshop held in 1998 in Prague. The book comprises 12 chapters written by leading figures in the field of early psychosis. With sections addressing the premorbid phase, the prodromal phase, the onset phase, and the early course of illness, the layout of the book reflects the natural history of psychosis itself. Most of the chapters include a thorough review of the literature, which conveys a comprehensive sense of the state of the art in early psychosis work, as of 1998. Some chapters offer detailed descriptions of seminal projects in the field, such as the Copenhagen High Risk Project in Denmark, the PACE Clinic in Australia, the DEEP Project in Finland, and the Buckingham Project in the United Kingdom.
