The authoritative text on psychiatric rehabilitation, this book covers everything from conceptual and empirical foundations to exemplary program models. Students and practitioners gain the knowledge needed to help adults with psychiatric disabilities move forward in their recovery process and build personally satisfying lives. The book presents tools and strategies for assessing personal needs and strengths, integrating medical and psychosocial interventions, and implementing supportive services in such areas as housing, employment, education, substance abuse, and physical health. Numerous case examples illustrate both the real-world challenges of serious mental illness and the difference that effective interventions can make.
