Overview

While recent developments in psychopharmacology have been widely disseminated, equally important advances in psychological strategies for severe mental health problems have received less attention. Filling a crucial gap in the literature, this volume brings together leading clinical scientists to present evidence-based approaches for treating schizophrenia, severe mood disorders, substance use problems, and severe personality disorders. Cutting-edge modalities represented include cognitive-behavioral therapies, couple and family treatments, motivational interviewing, group work, and others. Written in a highly practical style, each chapter reviews the empirical basis for the treatment at hand; explains basic concepts and applications; and provides step-by-step implementation guidelines, concrete clinical examples, and patient-therapist dialogues. Also discussed are ways to modify each approach for different populations and strategies for integrating psychological and pharmacological treatments.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This text fills a real void. There are few comprehensive texts re this subject matter."--Stacey Lambert, Psy.D.

"This compendium of clinical interventions described by highly skilled clinical researchers offers mental health practitioners very practical skills for effectively treating truly serious mental disorders. Especially useful is the mini-manual chapter format with case examples and clinical dialogue illustrating a wide range of cognitive-behavioral methods, interpersonal psychodynamic therapies, and family and systems interventions. This is an excellent choice as a text for advanced graduate students in all mental health disciplines."--Gail Steketee, PhD, Boston University School of Social Work

"This book is an important guide for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and all health professionals who want to review new applications of tested treatments. Guidelines for the treatment of psychiatric disorders increasingly call for evidence of efficacy, making this a most timely publication. Empirical support is no less important in psychotherapy than it is in psychopharmacology."--Myrna M. Weissman, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons

"For a long time, severe mental disorders have been treated for the most part with medication. This book fills a longstanding gap in clinical psychology with its sound collection of effective, empirically based psychological treatments for the most troubled populations. Featuring an impressive list of contributors who represent the leading figures in their respective fields, this is a valuable tool for mental health professionals in the United States and internationally. It is also an accessible text for graduate-level students. I highly recommend this book."--Kurt Hahlweg, PhD, Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"Selects and presents evidence-based strategies from a veritable 'Who's Who' in psychological treatments....Individual chapters outline specific clinical strategies in a well-organized, readable fashion."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
The Clinical Psychologist

"For those readers who want an informed contemporary accounting of some of the most promising psychosocial treatments for disorders for which psychosocial treatments have not before been widely available, this would be an excellent choice."--The Clinical Psychologist
From The Critics
Recent advances in psychological strategies for treating severe mental health problems are described in detail here. Evidence-based treatment models are given for disorders including schizophrenia, mood disorders, substance abuse, and personality disorders. Contributors, many of whom developed the treatments they describe, review the empirical basis for each approach, explain basic concepts and applications, and discuss techniques used to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. Particular attention is given to integration of psychological and pharmacological interventions, and to gender and cultural issues. The editors teach psychology at Boston University. Annotation c.
