New in new dust jacket. Psychiatric rehabilitation has grown tremendously as a field since the 1999 publication of the first edition of this work. With increased funding, evidence-based practice guidelines, a certification program, and increased academic programs at both graduate and undergraduate levels. The volume of information in this area keeps expanding exponentially. This book was written explicitly to serve as a text for the field and follows a logical progression from an intro to the field to the symptoms and etiology of severe mental illness, to treatment and outcome in a variety of settings. The new edition will discuss impending changes in DSM-V regarding diagnosis, new information on evidence-based treatment, skills training across mental disorders for better daily living, taking into account patient physical as well as mental health in treatment planning and outcome assessment. There will also be a new instructor website with ppts, and test questions and answers. Class exercises and biographical sketches will be moved from printed matter to the website on the basis of reviewer suggestions.
