Overview

As managed care evolves, the movement toward the integration of behavioral healthcare services into primary medical practices has begun to gain momentum. Primary care providers, in general, are not professionally equipped to identify and monitor mental health and substance abuse problems. Thus, behavioral health care professionals have a new opportunity to make the skills and training they bring to primary care practitioners part of the solution of the health care crisis. Only recently has the value of the services they have been performing for decades and the need to make them available through formal programs been recognized.

Addressing opportunity, value, and need, this volume offers a comprehensive overview of the application of psychological screening and assessment instruments in primary care settings. It will be an indispensable reference for psychologists and trainees, as well as for primary care providers who may want to add to their professional armamentarium the techniques and instruments presented herein. The authors:

• provide a context for the use of psychological assessment instruments and consultation;

• discuss issues related to integrating psychological testing into primary care settings;

• describe in detail several brief, disease-specific, and general instruments that those practicing in an integrated delivery system should find useful;

• present three in-depth case studies of primary care organizations in which psychological assessment has been implemented; and

• take a look at how technology will likely affect and facilitate the use of psychological assessment instruments in primary care settings in the future.

Booknews
A broad reference for people practicing or intending to practice what is called primary behavioral health care, the integration of behavioral health care services into primary medical care practices, a movement that is gaining ground as managed health care increases. The focus is on using psychological screening and assessment instruments. Contributors from academia and the industry discuss general topics and issues to set the stage, a number of psychological instruments useful for screening and/or monitoring primary care patients with significant behavioral problems, actual examples of how psychological assessment can be integrated into primary care settings, and predictions of future developments in psychological assessment that are likely to impact its use in primary care settings. The specific topics include pediatric primary care settings, tools to improve the detection and treatment of depression, using the Beck anxiety inventory, depression as an example of improving care for a primary care population, and the Kaiser Permanente integrated care project. Primary care practitioners expanding to include behavioral care, and behavioral care specialists moving into a primary care setting might find useful information. Annotation c.
