Mental Health Professionals in Medical Settings: A Primer

Mental Health Professionals in Medical Settings: A Primer Lowest new price: $19.26
Lowest used price: $6.04
List price: $40.00
Author: Richard J. Bischoff Ph.D.

Both students and practicing mental health practitioners will find a well-researched, practical model for comprehensive, well-coordinated, and quality care that all patients deserve.

One of the most significant events in the history of health care is the development of separate and parallel systems for mental health and medical care. Patients, however, want health care that is better coordinated, more personalized, more accessible, more timely, and less cumbersome to receive. These patient-wants reinforce what we know about patient needs for better integrated care and more collaborative health care, as shown by the following data:
  • 50% of mental health care is delivered by primary care physicians.
  • 67% of all psychopharmacological drugs are prescribed by primary care physicians.
  • 50-70% of all primary care visits are for psychosocial concerns.
This book illustrates the importance of taking an integrated approach to health care and outlines the skills that a mental health professional needs for working in a medical setting. The authors, trained in health psychology, psychiatry, family medicine, and marriage and family therapy, build a persuasive case for their holistic, biopsychosocial approach to the traditionally fragmented fields of primary care and mental health care.This is a primer for mental health professionals working in a medical setting. Part I discusses health care settings. Chapters 1 and 2 describe the specific cultures of primary care, specialty care, and mental health care, and Chapter 3 discusses ways to balance the clinical, operational, and financial perspectives of health care. Part II provides information on how to build collaborative medical care, including getting started (Chapter 4), expanding the therapist's identity and role in medical clinics (Chapter 5), working within the medical system's organizational framework (Chapter 6), working with the common problems that patients present in primary care (Chapter 7), and ways to promote healthy behavior change (Chapter 8). The book concludes by highlighting some of the opportunities that exist for therapists who want to be part of this important shift in how health care is provided.

Death and Dying: A Reader (Readings in Bioethics)

Death and Dying: A Reader (Readings in Bioethics) Lowest new price: $19.99
Lowest used price: $7.42
List price: $32.00

Over a decade ago the field of bioethics was established in response to the increased control over the design of living organisms afforded by both medical genetics and biotechnology. Since its introduction, bioethics has become established as an academic discipline with journals and professional societies, is covered regularly in the media, and affects people everyday around the globe.

In response to the increasing need for information about medical genetics and biotechnology as well as the ethical issues these fields raise, Sheed & Ward proudly presents the Readings in Bioethics Series. Edited by Thomas A. Shannon, the series provides anthologies of critical essays and reflections by leading ethicists in four pivotal areas: reproductive technologies, genetic technologies, death and dying, and health care policy. The goal of this series is twofold: first, to provide a set of readers on thematic topics for introductory or survey courses in bioethics or for courses with a particular theme or time limitation. Second, each of the readers in this series is designed to help students focus more thoroughly and effectively on specific topics that flesh out the ethical issues at the core of bioethics. The series is also highly accessible to general readers interested in bioethics.

This volume collects critical essays by leading scholars on the definition of death, consciousness, quality of life, tube feeding, pallative care, physician-assisted suicide and the debate on euthanasia. Included in this volume are works by Paul B. Bascom, David DeGrazia, Ezekiel J. Emanuel, Kathleen Foley, Herbert Hendin, Michael Panicola, Stephen G. Post, Thomas A. Shannon, Charles F. von Gunten, Susan W. Tolle.
