9780195159226: Handbook of Community-Based Clinical Practice

This sweeping volume builds the much-needed bridge between books on community practice and on clinical practice, including 33 chapters written by expert social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists specifically for clinicians making the transition to community-based work.

This is the first handbook to specifically address this gap and provide meaningful guidance for today's community practitioners. Its overarching goal is to support the ongoing development of community-based mental health care, drawing on a wealth of practical examples. This groundbreaking collection not only outlines the history and philosophy of community practice but richly illustrates the state of the art with examples from early intervention and development programs, school-based practice, and community mental health services for children, families, and adults.

Community-based clinicians of every stripe will find this handbook indispensable for understanding, improving, and evaluating their practice while enriching the health and well-being of their clients and their communities.

About the Author:

Anita Lightburn is at Fordham University. Phebe Sessions is at Smith College.

Review:


"This is the first comprehensive and multidisciplinary reference on community-based mental health and family practices published in this decade. The 33 chapters by esteemed scholar-practitioners leave no stone unturned in their original and up-to-date chapters. The first five overview and foundation chapters alone make this book a must-read volume. The breadth and depth of knowledge conveyed by this international author team, state-of-the-art information, and practice guidelines make this book an authoritative, original, informative, and practical book for all human service clinicians and administrators." --Albert R. Roberts, Ph.D. Professor of Social Work and Criminal Justice, Rutgers University, and Editor-in-Chief, Brief Treatment and Crisis Intervention


"Lightburn and Sessions have gathered for us a rich, extensive, and even revolutionary compendium of materials on community-based practice. Including theoretical discussions by some of the most creative thinkers in mental health and fascinating and highly instructive examples of this work in practice, this volume is a fulfillment of Bertha Reynolds's wish that helping be located on the highways of life where ordinary traffic passes by." --Ann Hartman, DSW, Professor and Dean Emerita, Smith College School for Social Work


"This handbook is timely, comprehensive, and informative. It is indeed a valuable resource to support the ongoing development of community-based mental health care." --Joseph L. Woolston, M.D., Professor of Child Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Yale University School of Medicine Child Study Center


"Just when it looked like there was nothing to do for the community mental health movement except put flowers on the grave, Lightburn and Sessions produce a book that breathes new life back into community-based practice. There is something here for anyone who has a stake in the mental health of the nation, from historians, researchers, and academicians to clinicians, administrators, and in-the-trenches community workers. Kudos to the editors of this volume for offering a new generation of social service and mental health professionals an enlightening perspective on their past, a sobering assessment of the present, and a vision of hope for the future." --Sandra L. Bloom, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Creating Sanctuary: Toward the Evolution of Sane Societies and Bearing Witness: Violence


"Community-based clinical practice is increasingly regarded as THE approach to social work in such settings as schools, family services, and mental health. In this handbook, Anita Lightburn and Phebe Sessions have brought together a range of comprehensive and inspiring contributions from leading scholars. Practitioners, administrators, and students will appreciate it as a remarkable reference text!" --Anthony N. Maluccio, DSW, Professor of Social Work, Boston College


"Consistent with a public health model and recommendations from the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health 2003, Lightburn and Sessions have edited and contributed to a handbook designed to promote transformation of the delivery of public mental health services. The book emphasizes programs designed for prevention and early intervention.[it] identifies the issues associated with the delivery of public mental health services and offers some innovative alternatives to existing approaches. With a diminishing workforce, community-based mental health practice is at a crossroad. This book breathes life and hope back into community based mental health practice. "--Elizabeth Pilonis, rief Treatments and Crisis Intervention


"The book is comprehensive and well-organized... Ground-breaking in the field of community-based clinical practice. It extends, critiques, and contributes to the social work knowledge base in a way that will be appreciated by a wide range of practitioners."--Clinical Social Work Journal
