Description

This sweeping volume builds the much-needed bridge between books on community practice and on clinical practice, including 33 chapters written by expert social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists specifically for clinicians making the transition to community-based work. This is the first handbook to specifically address this gap and provide meaningful guidance for today's community practitioners. Its overarching goal is to support the ongoing development of community-based mental health care, drawing on a wealth of practical examples. This groundbreaking collection not only outlines the history and philosophy of community practice but richly illustrates the state of the art with examples from early intervention and development programs, school-based practice, and community mental health services for children, families, and adults. Community-based clinicians of every stripe will find this handbook indispensable for understanding, improving, and evaluating their practice while enriching the health and well-being of their clients and their communities.show more

Clinicians from virtually any area of practice can find something in this book that could be useful for elucidating and developing their practice as clients come from and return to their communities.
