This textbook focuses on psychopathology as classified in the DSM-IV-TR, and discusses how it can be integrated into the ICF to assist mental health professionals while diagnosing and treating people with mental disorders. A perfect reference for students, the book serves as a natural bridge between the DSM-IV-TR and the ICF.

Students will learn the utility of using the ICF's biopsychosocial approach for conceptualizing mental health functioning (body functions and structures), disability (activity limitations and participation restrictions), and contextual factors (environmental and personal factors). The ICF's collaborative approach presents students with a conceptual framework that guides the selection of appropriate interventions and informs the evaluation of treatment efficacy.

Key Features:

  • Develops knowledge and understanding of mental health functioning and disability based on the ICF and related diagnoses within the DSM-IV-TR
  • Applies the ICF conceptual framework to planning mental health assessment and related interventions, and evaluating treatment outcomes
  • Integrates diagnostic information from the DSM-IV-TR with the ICF's classification of functioning, disability, and health
