This disorder oftenremains undiagnosed and untreated, but the behaviour of the illperson usually has a significant impact on the quality of life ofthe family and on the mental health of the other members of thefamily, and generates feelings of shame, guilt, helplessness anddespair.
This book provides a comprehensive picture of currentlyavailable evidence about the specific characteristics of the burdenon the families of people with the various mental disorders, thecoping strategies which increase or decrease this burden, thefamily interventions of proven efficacy, and what should be saidand what should not be said to the relatives of people with thevarious conditions.
