Abstract

The pervasiveness and visibility of chronic illness tend to promote therapeutic nihilism in treating clinicians. This article has attempted to provide an alternative perspective to this view by summarizing the effective pharmacological and psychosocial therapies which currently are available. The treatment of schizophrenia can be particularly difficult, but as long as it is undertaken with patience and appropriate expectations, it also can be very rewarding.
