              A practical and comprehensive resource for loved ones and young adults experiencing an episode of psychosis for the first time. Psychosis often first occurs in late adolescence or early adulthood - an exciting but often tumultuous time of role transitions and challenging new oppo...rtunities such as college and employment. An episode of psychosis can be frightening for those undergoing it, and for their loved ones, and navigating through evaluation, treatment, and recovery can be a stressful and isolating experience. The fully updated and revised edition of The First Episode of Psychosis is aimed at young people and their families experiencing the frightening and confusing initial episode of psychosis. The book covers a range of topics essential for those faced with the challenges posed by psychosis, including early warning signs, symptoms, types of disorders such as schizophrenia and schizophreniform disorder, evaluation, treatment, and healthy lifestyle choices. This new edition offers expanded coverage of specialized early intervention services, going back to school and work, and the latest psychosocial treatments and medicines. Worksheets help readers to track and better understand their own experiences, and facilitate open communication with care providers, while an extensive glossary clarifies the dizzying array of terms used by medical professionals. Optimistic, practical, and recovery-oriented, The First Episode of Psychosis will help young people and their families to take an active, informed role in their care as they take steps towards recovery and achieving their goals.

              Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug globally, and is becoming increasingly decriminalized and even legalized worldwide. Among the numerous mental-health concerns related to the drug, there is mounting evidence of an intricate link between cannabis use and schizophren...ia and related psychotic disorders. At the same time, there is promising evidence to suggest that cannabidiol, one of the many compounds found in cannabis that activates the brain's cannabinoid receptors, could prove to be an effective antipsychotic to treat schizophrenia. The Complex Connections between Cannabis Use and Schizophrenia provides an in-depth overview of the current state of the research into the role that cannabis plays in schizophrenia, covering both the pathophysiological and the pharmacological implications. It addresses the epidemiology of cannabis use and the risks associated with its use, the biological aspects of the drug and its effects on the brain, and the pharmacological possibilities of using cannabidiol to treat schizophrenia. It is the only book on the market devoted exclusively to examining the links between this very commonly used and misused drug and this specific set of devastating psychiatric illnesses, providing a comprehensive guide to our current understandings of this relationship as well as giving a direction for future research.
