The Mental Health-Substance Use series provides clear guidance for professionals on this complex and increasingly recognised field. It concentrates on the concerns, dilemmas and concepts that impact on the life and well-being of affected individuals and those close to them, as well as the future direction of practice, education, research, services, intervention, and treatment. This final book in the series provides the basis of best practice for offering effective interventions to affected individuals and their families, exploring the effects of various substances, both controlled and proscribed, and the impact of substance use in schizophrenia. Therapeutic interventions such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and dialectical behaviour therapy are discussed, as are relapse prevention and the specific needs of groups such as older people and young adults. Associated topics such as individuals within the criminal justice system, and brain injury (the symptoms of which often mimic mental health-substance use) complete this highly comprehensive guide. The volumes in this series are designed to challenge concepts and stimulate debate, exploring all aspects of the development in treatment, intervention and care response, and the adoption of research-led best practice. They are essential reading for mental health and substance use professionals, students and educators.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Practice: A Casebook on Co-occurring Disorders provides readers with illuminating, complex cases that shed light on how experienced practitioners think about practice, struggle to resolve practice dilemmas, and make clinical decisions to meet the needs of clients with co-occurring disorders. The opening chapter presents the Advanced Multiple Systems (AMS) approach, gleaned from the editors' 80 years of combined professional experience and providing readers with a series of guiding practice principles to use while reading the evaluating cases. In following chapters, cases are presented in the form of in-depth narratives. Through an informative storytelling, readers learn about individuals struggling with substance abuse, mental health disorders, racial identity, trauma, and parental rights. In additional chapters, readers are provided with standard assessment forms and challenged to make clinical sense of clients' information and their complex lives.

The Mental Health-Substance Use series provides clear guidance for professionals on this complex and increasingly recognised field. It concentrates on the concerns, dilemmas and concepts that impact on the life and well-being of affected individuals and those close to them, and the future direction of practice, education, research, services, intervention, and treatment. Mental health-substance use is a complex and varied phenomenon, and this volume stresses an appreciation that interventions that work for one individual or family may prove ineffective for another. It therefore explores the needs of individuals and carers, the nature of the therapeutic relationship, and the theory and application of a variety of interventional techniques; these include group therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), brief interventions and many more. The volumes in this series are designed to challenge concepts and stimulate debate, exploring all aspects of the development in treatment, intervention and care response, and the adoption of research-led best practice. They are essential reading for mental health and substance use professionals, students and educators.

No other text available today offers what The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment can: completely updated treatment information on a broad range of substance use disorders that is consistent with the new DSM-5 classification and thus reflective of how psychiatry is practiced today. Designed for researchers and mental health professionals ranging from trainee to licensed practitioner, the book is also appropriate for a diverse array of rehabilitation settings, from inpatient to community-based treatment. Full coverage is provided on 12-step programs, as well, including the latest outcomes research. Much of the material is new to this edition: A chapter has been added on science in the treatment of substance abuse, in which the authors discuss the history of scientific intervention in substance abuse and explore what happens to the brain when addicting drugs are consumed, review animal models and imaging techniques, and discuss current progress in the science of addiction. Chapters have been added on screening and brief intervention, reflecting the development of brief screening tools and research on the efficacy of interventions, and the role of "recovery" in chronic care disease management -- specifically what the treatment models for alcohol dependence and for diabetes can effectively borrow from each other. A new chapter focuses on the treatment of alcohol intoxication and withdrawal -- the first steps in treatment of alcohol use disorder. Two chapters on marijuana -- one on the neurobiology and one addressing treatment have been added. Given the accelerating trend toward decriminalization and legalization of this substance, clinicians will find this information of increasing importance. The section on substance use issues among gay men and lesbians has been expanded to include bisexual and transgender people in recognition of increased diversity among the population. Well-structured, with topics that follow logically and many practical, treatment-oriented features, such as quick reference tables and lists of recommended readings, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment is a classic that will enhance the education and practice of clinicians.

It contends that these issues are closely interrelated, with appropriate communication and support being key to both. Its chapters draw from a variety of theories and treatments to provide practical advice on the challenge of providing appropriate care tailored to a wide scope of individuals and families. The volumes in this series are designed to challenge concepts and stimulate debate, exploring all aspects of the development in treatment, intervention and care response, and the adoption of research-led best practice.

This text provides an in-depth, contemporary approach to clinical social work with clients in mental health settings. This is a revision of a text originally titled Clinical Social Work Practice in Community Mental Health. The “community mental health” approach is now dated, and this revision features “behavioral” mental health, described from a “postmodern” perspective. The book's postmodern approach is client-oriented and context-sensitive. This perspective is explained in Chapter 1 and is included in every chapter by featuring clients' “voices,” particularly at the beginning and end of the chapters. Important new topics include managed care and measurement of outcomes, both of which are woven throughout the text and featured in Chapters 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, and 13. “Best Practices” boxes in Chapters 6 and 8-12 provide exemplary approaches to intervention with clients with specific mental health problems. Alternative healing methods are discussed in “Other Ways of Healing” sections in Chapters 6, 8, 9, 12, and 13. Medications are discussed in Chapters 8, 9, and 12, and abuse of medications is discussed in Chapter 13.

As the first attempt to synthesize the movement toward widespread implementation of evidence-based mental health practices, this groundbreaking collection articulates the basic tenets of evidence-based medicine and shows how practices proven effective by clinical services research could improve the lives of many people. Intended to stimulate much-needed public discussion, these remarkable contributions cover both general issues, such as Implementing practices in routine mental health settings, including strategies for disseminating evidence-based practices to staff members Ensuring that efforts to implement such practices are informed by the knowledge and experience of administrators, clinicians, patients, and advocates Integrating evidence-based practices with the recovery model and focusing on guidelines and algorithms for pharmacologic treatment of people with severe mental illness Identifying the policy implications of the movement, particularly in public-sector settings, and describing eight courses of action for addressing the gap between science and practice and specific practices, such as Describing critical components of practices for which substantial evidence exists, such as supported employment, dual diagnosis services, and assertive community treatment Developing an evidence base for particular populations, such as children and adolescents and geriatric patients; and for clinical subgroups, such as patients with severe mental illness and posttraumatic stress disorder-and implementing a range of practices for each population Debate in public forums is critical to explaining the benefits of evidence-based care and allaying the fears of patients, practitioners, administrators, policy makers, and vested interest groups that evidence-based care excludes them from the decision-making process. Patients need to know that their individual characteristics, preferences, and autonomy are highly valued and won't be discounted by rigid adherence to the particular treatments. Practitioners need to know about the credibility of the evidence base and about new techniques and responsibilities and to understand that their favorite practices won't necessarily be excluded during initial attempts to implement evidence-based practices. Administrators and policy makers need to know about financing, organizing, implementing, and sustaining new practices. Finally, vested interest groups need to know that the introduction of evidence-based practices doesn't mean that what they do now is ineffective. This unique and densely informative volume will be welcomed by mental health care professionals and by lawmakers, planners, administrators, and others who are charged with the responsibility of providing effective care to vulnerable populations.

Because substance abuse is common among persons seeking mental health services, it is important for mental health professionals who don't specialize in substance abuse to be able to ascertain the possible involvement of alcohol or drug abuse when assessing a client. This practical new volume provides all the information general psychotherapists and mental health clinicians need to properly identify, assess, treat, and/or refer a client who is using psychoactive substances. Unlike other resources on the treatment of substance abuse, this volume is accessibly written for nonspecialists working in mental health facilities, hospitals, private practice, or other clinical settings, though specialists, too, will find many chapters of practical utility.

"Mental Health Practice in Todayís Schools: Issues and Interventions provides a comprehensive guide to the mental health issues of students in our schools and practical school-wide prevention and intervention strategies to address these challenges. This text will likely serve as an essential resource for mental health practitioners and educators working in the schools for years to come." --Michael A. Keim, NCC, Columbus State University, The Professional Counselor In today's schools, the variety and consequences of mental health problems are growing and receiving greater public attention. Moreover, dwindling resources add to the difficulties of providing adequate mental health services. This practice-oriented, evidence-based resource addresses the key mental health issues and challenges facing school-based professionals and helps to facilitate effective and focused mental health consultation, training, and counseling within the school setting. Grounded in a tiered intervention approach to school psychological practices, this text focuses on preventive and proactive services that are integrated at the school-wide and classroom levels, as well as more intensive mental health services for the most vulnerable students. In addition to addressing core issues such as screening for at-risk students, Response to Intervention (RTI) and mental health, culturally sensitive practices, community services and supports, law and ethics, and the role of micro-skills in daily practice, this text also covers critical topics such as bullying and cyber-bullying, physical and sexual abuse, suicide prevention and intervention, school crisis response, threat assessment, and substance abuse. Chapters feature illustrative case examples as well as summaries of key concepts. Facilitating knowledge and awareness of evidence-based mental health practices in schools for practitioners at every level of service, this textbook is also an essential resource for graduate students in school psychology, school guidance and counseling, school social work, and educational leadership. KEY FEATURES: Emphasizes mental health practice from school-wide prevention to student-specific intervention Highlights the essential service connection of RTI to student mental health needs and issues Expands graduate students’ and practitioners’ knowledge and skill sets regarding high need issues and challenges Describes state-of-the-art, evidence-based mental health programs, services, and approaches Includes case examples within chapters and extensive capstone case studies
