Description

This compendium of forms, guidelines, and procedures for use in clinical correctional mental health settings has been specifically designed to provide guidance in documentation and procedures for administrators, clinicians, and correctional officers. Unlike texts with a more theoretical bent, "Manual of Forms and Guidelines for Correctional Mental Health" focuses on practical applications and provides the tools for putting them to work. This book represents the first attempt to collate such information based on input from correctional mental health providers across the United States and reflects the experience of contributors from a variety of settings, allowing users to compare their current practices with those of their professional counterparts.show more

Review quote

"It is difficult to compare this work with any others as it is relatively unique for this specific patient population. Undoubtedly working in these clinical environments creates new and difficult challenges, not the least of which is documenting accurately and appropriately, and this manual provides templates and other useful tools for this purpose. Of particular value is the CD-ROM, which allows users to customize their own documents using the basic framework provided by the authors. Chapters are succinct, but dense, and give ample suggestions about some of the best ways to record data which will be useful to others for treatment. This is a very worthy effort and correctional facilities of all kinds would benefit from having this manual as a reference for their mental healthcare providers."-- "Doody Enterprises, Steven T. Herron, M.D.", "October 2010"show more
