This essential resource, written for social workers by a social worker, discusses the etiology, epidemiology, assessment, and intervention planning for common disorders. Austrian goes beyond a linear classification approach, instead emphasizing a broad bio-psychosocial ecosystems perspective, which takes into account each client's unique situation. In addition to including the most up-to-date information on new medications, biochemical data on disease causes, and diagnostic tests, the thoroughly updated second edition also gives an overview and critique of managed care as it relates to the treatment of mental disorders.
