Interventions for Severe Mental Disorders: Working with Individuals and their Families prepares the beginning social work practitioner to work with some of the most challenging clients seen at public community mental/behavioural health care services. This title includes how to develop and maintain a therapeutic alliance with individuals with serious mental illness; how to manage and overcome the impact of stigma; how to manage a client's lack of insight and facilitate illness awareness; and how to work with and engage involuntary and resistant clients. Readers will learn how to overcome potential barriers to effective treatment engagement with individuals suffering from severe mental illness (SMI). Mental illnesses addressed include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, paranoid disorder, severe personality disorders and substance abuse problems.
