Publisher Description:
The majority of Americans struggling with mental health problems get inadequate mental health care. Many get none at all. Current trends in managed health care account for some of this shortfall, but research suggests that many Americans simply don't understand the psychotherapeutic treatment options available to them. And who can blame them? It's hard to keep track of diagnoses, practitioners, and therapies without some source for guidance and reliable information--the kind of information and advice readers will find in this timely and much-anticipated guide. This book includes an uncomplicated assessment to identify mental health problems. It offers descriptions of the different kinds of mental health practitioners and the services they provide. It also details common psychotherapeutic methods, how they work, and what problems they are likely to help. Equipped with this resource, readers will be in a powerful position to take control of their own mental health care and make important positive changes in their lives.
