    First published in 1994. Until recently, patients with severe and long-lasting mental disorders were treated primarily through hospitalisation and psychotropic medication. However, now there is a concerted effort to integrate treatment approaches from behavioural and rehabilitation therapies and social skills training.; This book presents an integration of psychological treatment and assessment practices, authored by professionals with established expertise in their subject area. Topics of fundamentally important issues have been selected and divided into three sections: assessment and treatment planning; social and vocational skills development; and group and family therapy in rehabilitation. This volume can be used as a reference handbook, a guide to clinical practice, or a classroom text describing the basic psychological approaches that are effective with patients with severe mental disabilities.
