This text is designed to complement Zide's and Gray's (both: social work, Barry U.) 2001 text, Psychopathology: A Competency-Based Assessment Model for Social Workers. Focusing on a client's capacities, strengths, and resources rather than pathology, the text provides an integrative context for helping adult clients find ways to resolve the real-life problems of living with mental illness. Coverage includes an overview of the competency-based treatment model and the major counseling theories supporting competency-based treatment, followed by chapters organized around merging the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual or DMS classification of mental disorders with the treatment model. For graduate and undergraduate students in social work programs, practicing social workers, mental health counselors, family therapists, and related professionals.
