From our regular book review column.

The International Society for the Psychological Treatments of the Schizophrenias and Other Psychoses (ISPS) is a global society composed of multidisciplinary professionals organized at national, regional, and local levels. This text is one in a series produced by the ISPS reflecting the resurging interest in psychosocial factors and their effects on psychotic disorders. The idea for the book came out of 2 conferences on making inpatient wards therapeutic, organized by members of the ISPS in the United Kingdom. The editors come from 4 mental health disciplines: nursing (Mark Hardcastle), clinical psychology (David Kennard), art therapy (Sheila Grandison), and psychiatry (Leonard Fagin).
