"...Vocational Impact of Psychiatric Disorders: A Guide for Rehabilitation Professionals offers a well—written and concise review of mental health disorders that are commonly encountered in the workplace. The case—based style used by the authors adds significantly to the reader's understanding of the various psychiatric disorders and their propensity to impact work performance."——Journal of Occupational Rehabilitation (10:1)

This book is the first to provide accessible information about the most common psychiatric conditions encountered by vocational rehabilitation professionals. All information is based on conditions as described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) IV. Each chapter includes case studies or vignettes to illustrate symptomatology, rehabilitation counseling techniques, placement and training recommendations, and suggestions for reasonable workplace accommodations.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Fishler and Booth, both from the Institute for Forensic Psychology in Minneapolis, present a guide to many of the DSM-IV diagnoses that vocational rehabilitation professionals are likely to encounter in their work. The arrange them to parallel the DSM-IV classification, but include only those disorders that best and most clearly illustrate the difficulties faced by these clients and the professionals who serve them. Each chapter includes a case study with specific symptoms and their vocational impact. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
