Overview

Psychiatric Rehabilitation has grown tremendously as a field since the 1999 publication of the first edition. With increased funding, evidence-based practice guidelines, a certification program, and increased academic programs at both graduate and undergraduate levels, the volume of new information on the topic required a new edition.
Psychiatric Rehabilitation, 2e was written explicitly to appeal as a course text for classes in this rapidly growing field. New to the second edition are sections added to each chapter on evidence-based practices, as well as future research directions and two new chapters.

The book follows a logical progression from an introduction to the field, to the symptoms and etiology of severe mental illness, to course, treatment, and outcome of severe and persisitent mental illness. The book discusses the goals, values, and guiding principles of psychiatric rehabilitation, methods utilized, day programming, and case management. A new chapter discusses the issues of dual diagnosis for substance abuse and mental illness. Separate chapters discuss vocational rehabilitation and supported education, and closing chapters discuss residential services and independent living, self-help and peer-delivered services, a new chapter on psychiatric rehabilitation within the hospital settings, and the role of the family in psychiatric rehabilitation across settings and services.

Written in one clear voice, each chapter begins with an outline and introduction, contains special boxed sections addressing controversial issues and key topics, and has a case study to illustrate principles discussed in the text. Evidence based practices are highlighted in a special section, future research directions are contained in another section, and the chapters conclude with a summary, class exercises, and references.

Key features:
Case study examples illustrate chapter points
Special boxed sections address controversial issues and key topics
Evidence based practices called out in new section for each chapter
Glossary highlights and defines key terms
Class exercises provided at close of each chapter
