This book sheds light on recent research into the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of people with schizoaffective disorders. The first chapter outlines a historical, international perspective on the controversies related to definitions and theoretical underpinnings of schizoaffective disorder. Later chapters describe recent work in resilience and recovery, managing suicide risk in pregnant schizoaffective women, and neuropsychological deficits in schizoaffective disorder. Other topics include ego functioning and cognition in people with the disorder, the connections between boredom and hallucination-proneness, and a comparative study of clinical, neuropsychological, and molecular-genetic aspects of schizoaffective psychosis and schizophrenia.
