About the Author

Paul H. Jenkins, PsyD, is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 30 years of professional experience in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illness. He is a professor of psychology at National University and enjoys teaching students the fundamentals of assessment, treatment planning, and psychotherapy.


"In this deeply probing work, Paul Jenkins investigates and analyses the constructs of mental health and mental illness. Drawing from multiple perspectives based in a rich and deep knowledge of the relevant scholarship from an array of relevant fields, Jenkins deconstructs and assesses the theories and underlying epistemologies that have been applied to mental health and mental illness. He takes the reader on an insightful historical voyage through the development of these concepts over time, concluding with an integrative synthesis grounded in a new variation on the biopsychosocial model. This is a book that should be read by every thoughtful student or practitioner in a mental health field."

Jay L. Lebow, PhD, ABPP, senior scholar and clinical professor, The Family Institute at Northwestern University
