Psychotherapy, Counselling and Primary Mental Health Care

£13.99

Product description

How can psychotherapists, counsellors and medical practitioners best determine the most appropriate treatment for individual patients in primary care? The growth of counselling and therapy in primary care has been accompanied by pressure for shorter-term, brief treatments and evidence-based, managed care. Mary Burton examines these issues in detail, and the main focus is on the practical assessment of patients and the selection of appropriate treatment within the real world of service provision. This book is aimed at psychotherapists, counsellors, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists in primary care, as well as general practitioners and service managers with a serious interest in delivering best practice for their patients. They will find here: a review of the major issues in counselling and psychotherapy in primary care, a survey of the main psychotherapeutic approaches and the outcome evidence relating to their application in clinical practice, a critical appraisal of the role of managed care and brief therapies in primary mental health care and a useful, practical guide to assessment and to treatment and evaluation, illustrated extensively with case material and clinical vignettes.

A paperback book in near perfect condition. There are very light signs of shelf wear to the corners of the spine. However, the pages are clean and the spine is tight. There are almost no signs of the book being previously read. An excellent addition to any student's or medical practitioner's collection.
