Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael J. Bamdad, MA, CCC-SLP(George Washington University)
Description: This book focuses on communication impairments in mental illness. It is organized to educate readers on various communication disorders typically seen with specific mental illnesses as well as on the role of speech-language pathologists in these cases.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to educate readers on the role of speech-language pathologists in mental illness cases along with the role of the other team members who are typically involved with the management of these patients. These are indeed worthy objectives and the authors have accomplished their goals.
Audience: This book is intended primarily for speech-language pathologists but also could be useful for other mental health professionals. It is structured for both student clinicians and certified staff members for use in a clinical setting.
Features: Initially the book reviews specific issues with communication disorders amongst an array of specific diagnoses in the area of psychiatric medicine. There is then a review of various other mental health related disciplines, discussing their role in mental health cases. Various approaches to therapy are discussed. After reviewing management options, specific linguistic parameters are discussed in regards to mental illness disorders. The book does a commendable job of breaking the topic into easily understood components. Illustrations are not a strength of this text.
Assessment: This book will be extremely beneficial for students and certified clinicians in the field of speech-language pathology, particularly for those working with patients with mental illness. I am unaware of other books that focus this specifically on the topic of mental illness and communication disorders.

Experts in mental health and psychiatry help professionals to gain a deeper understanding of the pivotal role of communication in mental health and to apply this knowledge in a range of mental health settings. Early chapters provide theoretical background on methods of communication commonly adopted by individuals with a variety of diagnoses of mental illness. Later chapters look at how information on communication in mental illness can influence service provision, and give suggestions for future policy and practice. Final chapters describe the current state of research. The editors are affiliated with Broadmoor Hospital. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
