about

This volume offers a comprehensive examination of current theory, research, and practice concerning people with serious mental illness and their families. There are presently many exciting developments under way, as professional practice is reformulated to emphasize the contributions of psychologists to the treatment of mental illness and the satisfactions that can accompany clinical work with the population. The current era is a transitional one in many respects, with significant changes in mental health policies and priorities, and in clinical training and practice. This work charts these new developments and explores their implications for mental health professionals.

Editorial Reviews

?More polished than many edited conference proceedings, this book provides a unique historical perspective, as revealed through the personal accounts of individuals who have grappled with imperfect mental health systems. Especially engaging are several chapters by psychologists who are also family members and another by a psychologist who has a diagnosis of schizophrenia. The creation of partnerships among psychologists, mental health consumers, and families is long overdue. This book is worth reading for this reason.?-Contemporary Psychology
