This book demonstrates an integrated model of clinical psychology practice where disorders are understood as the outcome of multiple interacting factors across different levels of analysis: biological, psychological and psycho-social. Using real-life case studies with expert analysis and interpretation by leading clinical psychologists and educators, the chapters presented in this book show how the planning of intervention needs to be informed by the available evidence. This integrated model allows interventions to be individually tailored rather than offered as a 'one size fits all' approach, placing greater emphasis on rigorous assessment as one of the core clinical skills and distinguishing features of a clinical psychologist. The integrated approach to clinical assessment is a prerequisite to an integrated approach to psychological therapy. Increasingly clinical psychologists are able to employ integrated forms of psychological therapy as the field comes to accept both the strengths and limitations of cognitive, behavioural, humanistic, psychodynamic and systemic approaches. Integration in contemporary approaches such as Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) or Schema Focused Therapy (SFT) are good examples of the blending and integration characteristic of contemporary practice. The case studies in this book cover a range of disorders, including substance abuse, depression, childhood depression, eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, obsessive behaviours, attachment disorder, sexual offending, dementia, learning difficulties and schizophrenia. An invaluable resource for all clinical psychology students as well as practising clinicians.

"This is the long-awaited text on interdisciplinary treatment and assessment of, among other clinical topics, brain-derived behavioral, cognitive, and neurological disorders...." --Niels Birbaumer, PhD University of T ̧bingen, Germany Member of the German Academy of Sciences, Leopoldina "Gone is the unidimensional approach of the expert summarizing a topic from a single vantage point.

"This much-needed volume brings to the clinician or student some of the best critical-minded analysis by some of the most insightful thinkers about psychiatric diagnosis today. The thought-provoking questions these essays raise, and the multifaceted and provocative answers they provide, cultivate sensitivity to the nuances of diagnostic assessment that often makes the difference between clinical success and failure." - Jerome C. Wakefield, PhD, DSW, New York University Silver School of Social Work, New York This transformative resource challenges social workers and mental health professionals to rethink their approaches to assessment and diagnosis from the ground up. Among the book’s unique features are its use of diverse lenses to examine a common case and its illustration of how multiple perspectives can be integrated for a richly textured portrait of the individual in context. Equally crucial is the book’s commitment to professional development, from exercises to improve case conceptualization to strategies for teaching and learning. Topics include: The DSM-5 definition of mental disorder: critique and alternatives. Making assessment decisions: macro, mezzo, and micro perspectives. Neuroscience, resilience, and the embodiment of “mental” disorder. Narrative, psychodynamic, and cultural conceptualizations of disorder. Person-centered and contextualized diagnosis in mental health. Meeting the challenge of teaching integrated assessment. Critical Thinking in Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis has much to offer professionals, researchers, and educators in the fields of social work and mental health. .

Despite an increased awareness of co-occurring disorders, most current treatment paradigms still focus on one problem or the other, leaving much unassessed, unaddressed, or ignored. Until now - a revolutionary new book from Dr. Charles Atkins that can break the cycles of relapse for those intertwined with substance use and mental illness. Co-Occurring Disorders is a guide to practical assessment and effective treatment approaches for working work with any number of co-occurring disorders. This step-by-step approach, demonstrated through diverse case studies, gives you the tools you need to improve and track your clinical outcomes. This is a must-have resource for both the rubber-meets-the-road clinician, who wants effective strategies and a clear direction for treatment and recovery, and the administrator who creates interventions at the system level with attention to regulatory and reimbursement demands. Also included is a comprehensive state-by-state Guide to Mental Health and Substance Abuse Agencies and Prescription Monitoring Programs Evidence-Based Integrated Treatment, finding the right tool for the job: • Motivational Interviewing • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Strategies • Skills Training • Mindfulness Training • Mutual Self-Help & Peer-Based interventions • Wellness interventions • Recovery based • Family interventions • Assertive Community Treatment and Targeted Case Management • Psychopharmacology including opioid and nicotine replacement strategies Diagnosis-Specific Issues in Co-Occurring Disorders: • ADHD • Depression and Bipolar Disorders • Anxiety and PTSD • Schizophrenia and other Psychotic Disorders • Personality Disorders Substance-Specific Issues in Co-Occurring Disorders: • Alcohol • Opioids • Tobacco • Cocaine and other Stimulants, including "Bath Salts" • Cannabis & Synthetic Cannabis • The Internet and other sources of Drugs Reviews: "A comprehensive, user-friendly compilation of assessment and intervention strategies to be used for clients.

Written in plain language, Atkins provides a clinical road map beginning with an outline of key issues and ending with treatment planning.

This book sets the stage by providing a clear, systematic, and integrative model for mental health assessment and treatment planning that can be used in a variety of clinical settings, with a diverse adult clinical population. The authors advocate for the importance of considering all aspects of evidence-based practice (i.e., best available research, clinician’s expertise, and experience, as well as clients’ preferences and idiosyncrasies) when conducting assessments and delivering psychological treatments. Special attention is also given to the interdisciplinary aspects of delivering mental health care in today’s fast-paced environments. If you are a seasoned clinician or a beginner therapist, you will surely find this book useful because it provides a general map that can be used regardless of your specific theoretical orientations. The applied nature of the content makes it easy and valuable for readers who wish to apply psychology integration to their own practice. Specifically, case vignettes have been developed to help readers gain a better understanding on how to apply the integrative interprofessional framework into their practice. Finally, professors and supervisors will also find this book worthwhile as the authors incorporated a chapter on the supervision and evaluation of assessment and treatment planning competencies.

The purpose of the book was originally to offer a relatively brief manual on the essentials of psychological assessments for the general classes of problems in children and youth that present themselves to psychologists in general practice. There are few psychological training programs that train clinicians to specialize in children. Experts in child clinical psychology have lamented the failings of adult-oriented training programs in preparing practitioners to work with children and youth. Since adult programs make up the overwhelming majority of psychology programs in existence, many psychologists who subsequently take positions in general practices find themselves faced with assessments for which they have had minimal training.

'once you let a clinical psychologist lay hands on this book, it is quite difficult to get it back again' - Martin Guha, Librarian, Institute of Psychiatry, London The Encyclopedia of Psychological Assessment is a landmark reference work and constitutes a definitive resource for academics, practitioners and students working in any field of applied psychological science. Psychological assessment is a key component of psychological work. Devices of scientific assessment are necessary for adequate describing, diagnosis, predicting, explaining or changing the behaviour of all subjects under examination. This double-volume collection offers complete coverage to facilitate action in each of these areas and will consequently be invaluable to psychologists in any applied setting. The two volumes of the Encyclopedia of Psychological Assessment contain a series of 235 entries, organized alphabetically, and covering a variety of fields. Each entry includes a general conceptual and methodological overview, a section on relevant assessment devices, followed by links to related concepts in the Encyclopedia and a list of references. The Encyclopedia of Psychological Assessment provides: - A comprehensive network for psychological assessment as a conceptual and methodological discipline, and as a professional activity - An overview of the complexity of assessment, which involves not only testing, but also a process of decision-making for answering relevant questions that arise in the different applied fields - A presentation of relevant issues from basic theory (theoretical perspectives, ethics) and methodology (validity, reliability, item response theory) to technology and modes of assessment (tests, instruments and equipment for measuring behavioral operations) - An attempt to unify this diverse field by offering full coverage of all areas from the most traditional, such as clinical, educational and work and organizational psychology, to the most recent applications linked to health, gerontology, neuropsychology, psychophysiology and environmental assessment. The Encyclopedia of Psychological Assessment offers a truly international perspective, both in terms of the selected authors and chosen entries. It aims to provide an integrated view of assessment, bringing together knowledge dispersed throughout several methodological and applied fields, but united in terms of its relevance for assessment. It is an essential purchase for any library with an existing collection or concern with the field of psychological science in general.
