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.

Hailed by one reviewer as "the bible of the integration movement," the inaugural edition of Handbook of Psychotherapy Integration was the first compilation of the early integrative approaches to therapy. Since its publication psychotherapy integration has grown into a mature, empirically supported, and international movement, and the current edition provides a comprehensive review of what has been done. Reflecting the considerable advances in the field since the previous edition's release in 2005, this third edition of Handbook of Psychotherapy Integration continues to be the state-of-the-art description of psychotherapy integration and its clinical practices by some of its most distinguished proponents. Six chapters new to this edition describe growing areas of psychotherapy research and practice: common factors therapy, principle-based integration, integrative psychotherapy with children, mixing psychotherapy and self-help, integrating research and practice, and international themes. The latter two of these constitute contemporary thrusts in the integration movement: blending research and practice, and recognizing its international nature. Also closely examined are the concepts, history, training, research, global themes, and future of psychotherapy integration. Each chapter includes a new section on cultural considerations, and an emphasis is placed throughout the volume on outcome research. Charting the remarkable evolution of psychotherapy integration itself, the third edition of this Handbook will continue to prove invaluable to practitioners, researchers, and students alike.

"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. Instead, the content shifts laterally, embracing not only interdisciplinary expertise, but an integrative way of thinking that transcends each discipline....What makes the Handbook so refreshing is that this cross pollination of ideas and approaches is more than novel theorizing. It offers clinicians a new way forward." --Anthony Feinstein, MD, MPhil, PhD, FRCP University of Toronto To maintain the highest standards, allied health care practitioners must keep pace with evolving trends in diagnostics, interventions, and methodologies.

"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.

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.

This resource is a powerful tool and I am especially proud of the way he connects issues related to gender and trauma." -- Colette Anderson, LCSW, CEO The Connecticut Women's Consortium "A clear, concise and straightforward and up to date text on co-occurring disorders has been glaringly lacking in the Behavioral Health Field. Co-Occurring Disorders: The Integrated Assessment and Treatment of Substance Use and Mental Disorders offers students and clinicians at all levels a comprehensive view of the challenges of treating those with a co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder. Written in plain language, Atkins provides a clinical road map beginning with an outline of key issues and ending with treatment planning. Atkins also does what most don’t and that is to stress the importance of peer support, natural supports and self-help. Co-Occurring Disorders: The Integrated Assessment and Treatment of Substance Use and Mental Disorders is an important addition to any educator’s and clinician’s bookshelf." --Eileen M. Russo, MA, LADC, Assistant Professor, Drug and Alcohol Recovery Counselor Program, Gateway Community College, New Haven, CT "As a person that has lived with bipolar disorder for many years and has proudly disclosed my personal journey of recovery, I know there are many people who would greatly benefit from the treatments suggested in this powerful book-co-occurring services are rarely done in such a comprehensive way." -- Dr. Karen A. Kangas, Director of Operations, Advocacy Unlimited, Inc.

Introduction to Clinical Psychology covers the history, theory, practice, and potential future of the discipline and provides a comprehensive overview of interviewing, assessment, psychotherapy, community intervention, and public policy. The text describes psychological assessment procedures in detail and provides case studies demonstrating how the tests are administered and interpreted. It presents psychotherapy from both the traditional "schools" perspective and the practical perspective of number of individuals being seen-individual, couple, group, and family. At the beginning of each chapter on applied methods, an "ethical conundrums" box addresses practical issues likely to be faced by clinical psychologists in the course of their work. Points to consider about these dilemmas, presented at the chapter conclusion, illustrate not only the concept of ethical practice but also the fact that reality is not as clear-cut as published codes might suggest. In addition, later chapters present a range of career specialties through interviews with practicing psychologists at various points in their professional lives. Each psychologist responds to a standard series of questions, so students can compare and contrast their responses in order to gauge their own interest in and aptitudes for different career paths. Written in conversational prose with references to the authors' own lives and careers, Introduction to Clinical Psychology is ideal for undergraduate courses.
