About this product
- DescriptionAt a time when biological psychiatry claims that drugs and electroshock are the best methods for helping deeply disturbed persons, mental health professionals need to be reminded that psychological and social approaches to mental illnesses remain more effective, less harmful, and much more able to address the real needs of recovery, growth, and development for affected persons. Psychosocial Approaches to Deeply Disturbed Persons empowers counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers to trust their intuitive and clinical understanding of how to help seriously disturbed people through humane, caring approaches. Psychosocial Approaches to Deeply Disturbed Persons introduces mental health professionals to an array of psychological and social alternatives that are available for helping patients considered psychotic or very emotionally disturbed. Focusing on psychological and social approaches to helping people who become labeled psychotic or who carry serious psychiatric diagses, contributors show mental health professionals psychological, social, and spiritual alternatives for approaching or treating these individuals. Readers learn about: * a successful model for nmedical, n-drug residential treatment centers * utilizing the artwork of psychotic patients * case histories of psychoanalytic therapy * group therapy to help families with a schizophrenic member improve communication * Re-evaluation Counseling (RC) with disturbed individuals * psychoanalytically-oriented therapy * World Health Organization research which demonstrates the positive effect of extended family and social relationships and the negative effect of modern biopsychiatric treatment * research demonstrating the efficacy of psychotherapy with persons labeled schizophrenic These chapters combined with a review of empirical studies demonstrate to readers the efficacy of psychotherapy with psychotic patients. Students or experienced professionals in any of the mental health fields, including psychotherapy, counseling, clinical psychology, clinical social work, and Re-evaluation Counseling will find Psychosocial Approaches to Deeply Disturbed Persons a necessity for most effectively and humanely treating clients with serious psychiatric diagses.
