Psychiatric rehabilitation refers to community treatment of people with mental disorders. Community treatment has recently become far more widespread due to deinstitutionalization at government facilities. This book is an update of the first edition's discussion of types of mental disorders, including etiology, symptoms, course, and outcome, types of community treatment programs, case management strategies, and vocational and educational rehabilitation. Providing a comprehensive overview of this rapidly growing field, this book is suitable both as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses, a training tool for mental health workers, and a reference for academic researchers studying mental health. The book is written in an easy to read, engaging style. Each chapter contains highlighted and defined key terms, focus questions and key topics, a case study example, special sections on controversial issues of treatment or ethics, and other special features.

*New chapters on supported education and integrated dual diagnosis treatment services
*Comprehensive overview of all models and approaches of psychiatric rehabilitation
*Special inserts on Evidence-Based Practices

It also includes a new chapter on dual diagnosis for mental illness and substance abuse and focuses on the more prominent role psychiatric rehabilitation currently plays in mental health services.
Audience: The targeted audience includes students in psychiatric rehabilitation courses or certification programs. It may also serve as a reference for other mental health professionals and those involved in mental health policy.
Features: The book introduces psychiatric rehabilitation including the symptoms, course, and treatment of mental illness. It covers key players in the field's evolution as well as governmental and societal changes that have had an impact. The current role and direction of psychiatric rehabilitation is discussed in detail. Chapters are arranged well for the learner and include a chapter outline, chapter objectives, case study, evidence-based practice, summary, class exercise, and references. Controversial topics and important related material is provided in boxes throughout the chapter. A glossary and thorough index end the book. One chapter is dedicated to dual diagnosis and another focuses on the role of the family in rehabilitation.
