This comprehensive, authoritative text provides a state-of-the-art review of current knowledge and best practices for helping adults with psychiatric disabilities move forward in their recovery process. The authors draw on extensive research and clinical expertise to accessibly describe the “whats,” “whys,” and “how-tos” of psychiatric rehabilitation. Coverage includes tools and strategies for assessing clients’ needs and strengths, integrating medical and psychosocial interventions, and implementing supportive services in such areas as housing, employment, social networks, education, and physical health. Detailed case examples in every chapter illustrate both the real-world challenges of severe mental illness and the nuts and bolts of effective interventions.
