"This is an excellent guide to understanding how far treatment of mentally ill patients has come. From institutionalization to assertive community treatment and independent living, the field has changed significantly in a short period of time... Anyone who reads this book will be well prepared to start working in the field of psychiatric rehabilitation. I highly recommend it." Rating: 5 Stars. --Doody.com, 2014
