From the Publisher"Competency-Based Assessments in Mental Health Practice should be required reading for all clinical practitioners and students. Author Susan Gray provides a competency-based assessment model that moves away from looking at mental illness as a "disease" to capturing people's strengths and the uniqueness of their experience with mental illness."
—Alex Gitterman, Zachs Professor and Director of Ph.D. Program University of Connecticut School of Social Work
"Competency-Based Assessment in Mental Health Practice not only describes the rather cumbersome DSM-IV in a manner that graduate students and clinicians can easily understand and apply, but it also presents a competency-based type of clinical assessment that most effectively integrates the social work practice orientation that acknowledges, appreciates, and nurtures client strengths, resilience, and client ability for empowerment."
—Agathi Glezakos, PhD, LCSW, School of Social Work, California State University, Long Beach
