The third edition ofClinical Social Work Practice in Behavioral Mental Health:Toward Evidence-Based Practicemoves into todayrs"s paradigm, evidence-based practice. The book is consistent with current policy (e.g., recommendations of the Presidentrs"s New Freedom Commission and the Institute of Medicine) and encompasses todayrs"s recovery approach, interdisciplinary scientific knowledge, and cultural competence. It gives attention to practice methods with adults, including older adults, with depression and anxiety as well as adults with serious mental illness, including those with co-occurring disorders (serious mental illness and substance use disorders). Postmodernism, which was featured in the second edition, is used in this edition as a critical framework. Important features include evidence-based practice, rich case examples, measurement of progress and outcomes, and suggested Websites and SAMHSA toolkits. These are woven throughout the text and featured in Chapters 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13. "Evidence-Based Practice" boxes in Chapters 8, 9, and 11 provide exemplary approaches to intervention with clients with specific mental health problems. Cultural disparities are addressed in Chapter 6 and violence against women, including trafficking, is presented in Chapter 7. Medications are discussed in Chapters 8, 9, and 12.
