"A valuable addition to the psychiatric rehabilitation bookshelf, from a team of authors who have made prolific and influential contributions to the field...This text should have wide appeal to academic programs preparing mental health professionals, and to anyone interested in improving publicly funded behavioral health services." - Patricia B. Nemec, Rehabilitation Counseling Program, Boston University, USA "This impressive volume, written by five leaders in the field of psychiatric rehabilitation in the US, offers a remarkable amount of good evidence, historical overview, personal accounts, and practical advice. The layout is clear and logical, the language precise. It is enjoyable and easy to read...It provides a wealth of teaching and discussion material for multidisciplinary teams." - British Journal of Hospital Medicine "This is an exceptionally good book, and one of the few that can genuinely be recommended to all psychiatric trainees and every library...Lucidly written and carefully designed to enhance its readability and usefulness. Propositions, definitions, and models are all clearly described, the evidence in support of each is critically evaluated, and reviews are helpfully punctuated by succinct summaries and conclusions--including the limitations of the evidence itself...This is probably the best account of the evidence base for contemporary rehabilitation practice to date and a commendable starting place for further study or research." - British Journal of Psychiatry
