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.
