This book discusses the rationale for the selection of psychosocial measures used to assess adults with serious mental illnesses. The chapters examine the use and efficiency of various measurement tools that intend to evaluate diagnostic and functional specificity, life stressors, supportive resources, quality of life, and more.
The text also analyzes external factors that are vital to clients' clinical progress and continuing community tenure, such as continuity of care, housing resources, and family measures.
This is the ideal tool for clinicians, psychiatrists, rehabilitation professionals, and other mental health professionals working with the mentally ill in hospital or community health settings.
