Overview

Understanding the Behavioral Healthcare Crisis is a necessary book, edited and contributed to by a great variety of authors from academia, government, and industry. The book takes a bold look at what reforms are needed in healthcare and provides specific recommendations. Some of the serious concerns about the healthcare system that Cummings, O’Donohue, and their contributors address include access problems, safety problems, costs problems, the uninsured, and problems with efficacy. When students, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers finish reading this book they will have not just a greater idea of what problems still exist in healthcare, but, more importantly, a clearer idea of how to tackle them and provide much-needed reform.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book is a ‘must read’ for policymakers, administrators, clinicians, or citizens wanting a guide to our healthcare system—which is currently neither healthy, caring, nor a system! Experts discuss a variety of issues such as financial incentives, information management and uses of the Internet, and special issues pertaining to diverse populations. The editors are to be thanked for this practical and most timely volume.” - Michael F. Hoyt, PhD, Author, Brief Therapy and Managed Care, Some Stories are Better than Others, and Brief Psychotherapies: Principles and Practice

“The brief history of mental health care delivery in America is a story of challenge and change. Nick Cummings, who has long anticipated and responded to healthcare issues in ways that benefit consumers and providers, and William O’Donohue chart yet another course to guide us through these turbulent times.” - David B. Baker, Margaret Clark Morgan Director, Center for the History of Psychology; Professor of Psychology, The University of Akron, USA

“Drs. Cummings and O’Donohue provide a comprehensive coverage of the issues facing a broken behavioral healthcare system today. In their intelligent and insightful book, they offer hope and sensible suggestions about how to fix what is not working. Heed the authors’ advice, and we’ll be on our way to solving many problems in our current healthcare system.” - Carol Austad, Clinical Psychologist; Professor of Psychology and Co-coordinator, Biofeedback Center, Central Connecticut State University, USA
