What is included with this book?


An essential occupational therapy resource for more than 25 years, Psychopathology and Function by Dr. Bette Bonder compares the diagnostic criteria used by mental health professionals with the framework used by occupational therapists and identifies deficits in occupational performance that require occupational therapy intervention.

Completely updated, Psychopathology and Function, Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive overview of the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) with specific focus on how these mental disorders affect an individual’s ability to accomplish important daily activities.

Psychopathology and Function, Fifth Edition describes diagnostic theories in detail with consideration given to etiology, prognosis, impact on occupational performance, and implications for occupational therapy treatment.

The Fifth Edition also reviews mental health care, theories of mental health, and current trends. Featuring a comparison of the DSM-5, the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF), and the AOTA’s Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Third Edition conceptualizations of mental health and mental disorder, the text provides an array of resources for further study, from numerous case studies to case examples.

New to the Fifth Edition:
• A comprehensive overview of the DSM-5
• Information from the AOTA’s updated Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Third Edition
• An expanded discussion of occupational therapy evaluation and intervention
• An updated discussion of psychopharmacology
• More case studies and resources that encourage further exploration and application of the material
