The Second Edition of this highly practical volume brings a problem-based learning (PBL) approach to psychology and psychiatry for treating medical patients in primary and specialty settings. It supplies a robust framework for conceptualizing cases, complete with PBL methods for clinical reasoning and gaining critical insights, and applying knowledge learned to actual patient situations. In addition to the book’s skill-building toolkit, exercises involving detailed case examples anticipate situations readers will face when clients present with complex diagnoses and multilayered histories. This integrative method of learning and application helps readers develop therapy that is effective, culturally and ethically sound, and medically appropriate.
