Mental Disorders in the Social Environment

Mental Disorders in the Social Environment

Mental Disorders in the Social Environment

Social workers provide more mental health services than any other profession, yet recent biomedical trends in psychiatry appear to minimize the importance of their traditional concerns, which focus on the social environment that accompanies mental disorders and their treatment. This book calls attention to this emerging problem and challenges social workers and other health care professionals to be more skeptical about diagnosis, community treatment, evidence-based practice, psychotherapy, medications, and managed care.
