Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…are thorough in describing the symptoms experienced by people who have severe mental illnesses, as well as many of the goals professionals have when working with people who are diagnosed with these illnesses. The book mirror each other, and are organized alphabetically, making them easy to use. They could serve as a good reference for professionals needing ideas when creating treatment plans and documenting services with people who have severe and persistent mental illness."
