Overview

A clinical guide applicable to a variety of settings, this book offers expert evidence-based advice from authors with real-world experience on the difficult challenges inherent in working with homeless populations. The American Association of Community Psychiatrists' Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Mentally Ill Homeless Person offers case- and site-based discussions that provide approaches to therapy and rehabilitation from the vantage point of treatment environments, from street to housing. Its real-world orientation offers a detailed, practical team approach to situations posed by families, homeless children, veterans, urban and rural populations, and others, and features examples that enable readers to follow the progress of specific individuals as they were engaged in treatment and moved through the network of care.

The book's organization by treatment setting or specific subgroup allows a reader quick access to the chapters most relevant to the reader's own work. In the first five chapters, naturalistic settings with vivid clinical examples demonstrate the model of engagement, intensive care, and ongoing rehabilitation based on teamwork and coordinated care. Subsequent chapters define specific scenarios with case illustrations that describe patient subpopulations at various points on the engagement-rehabilitation continuum. Each chapter contains a clinical case example; guides to differential diagnosis, treatment planning, and accessing entitlements; and a flowchart for rehabilitation, including opportunities for student/resident or community involvement. The case studies illustrate interviewing skills that are useful in real-world settings with challenging patients and can be used as a teaching tool in a variety of settings.
