Dr. Lake has made a significant contribution to integrative medicine in this book by helping to weave the integral tapestry around the complex issues of mental illness. In honor of his efforts to restore healing and meaning to mental healthcare, I bow deeply. --From the foreword by Larry Dossey, MD Dr. James Lake once again illumines the path to future medicine in this comprehensive, carefully researched, and intellectually engaging exploration of clinical integration of complementary and conventional therapies in mental health care. In a rigorous, dispassionate analysis he both reveals the outer frontiers of medical possibility and describes the professional boundaries necessary to reach such frontiers in ways that are clinically responsible as well as ethically unassailable. --Michael H. Cohen, JD, MBA, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Assistant Professor, Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public HealthDr. Lake has written the defining textbook for evidence-based integrative mental health care. He has comprehensively evaluated the research support for both conventional and natural therapies and redefined how we understand and treat mental health patients. His careful flow charts help guide the clinician through the challenge of assessment and differentiation to personalize therapies based on each patient's unique needs. Clinicians will also find of immense value his many tables, which summarize the evidence base for each intervention. This is a tour-de-force that forever redefines mental health care. --Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founding President, Bastyr University This text offers an evidence-based approach to incorporating integrative psychiatry into practice that is pragmatic and useful, a great addition to the field of integrative medicine. --Roberta Lee, MD, Medical Director, Continuum Center for Health and HealingDr. Lake must be congratulated for this ground-breaking work on CAM in psychiatry. It not only provides a conceptual framework for a deeper understanding of disease of the mind-body-spirit, but also gives evidence-based blueprints for where we are and where we could go. A must read for mental health professionals interested in the philosophy and practice of integrative psychiatry. --Richard P. Brown, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and SurgeonsThis text is comprehensive and authoritative, well written and widely referenced. It will, I hope, enlarge the way we think about mental health and treat psychiatric disorders. --James S. Gordon, MD, Founder and Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine This book provides a comprehensive review of integrative approaches in mental health. Here the practitioner will find clear guidance in an evidence-based manner. A wonderful contribution. --Wayne B. Jonas, MD, Director Samueli Institute for Information BiologyThis book is a tour de force in the emerging field of integrative psychiatry. The author presents the material in each chapter in a systematic, thoughtful, thorough, and practical manner. The text itself is integrative in the way it discusses management issues that a provider may encounter. As the number of patients who already include - or wish to add - alternative methods in their overall treatment plan continues to grow, this text provides an important comprehensive resource for busy providers. Health care professionals from many different disciplines who need a serious reference text on integrative psychiatry and who wish to optimize options for their patients with chronic psychiatric disorders will find this book indispensable. --Iris R. Bell, MD, PhD, Professor, Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Psychiatry, Psychology, Medicine, and Public Health, The University of Ariz

Making sense of complementary and alternative treatments in mental health care. In mental health care, as in medical care, more and more clinicians are turning to unconventional assessment and treatment approaches to evaluate and treat their patients in the most effective way possible. But how is a clinician to makes sense of the range of complementary and alternative treatments (CAM), and when is it appropriate and safe to use conventional therapies alongside them? In this practical resource, Dr. Lake, a pioneer in the field of integrative mental healthcare, teaches readers how to integrate conventional mental healthcare—drugs and psychotherapy—with complementary and alternative approaches, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and other natural products, mind-body practices, light therapy, music, biofeedback, energy therapies, acupuncture, and others. This is a concise, evidence-based guide to the day-to-day management of common mental health problems using an integrative approach.

This book sets the stage by providing a clear, systematic, and integrative model for mental health assessment and treatment planning that can be used in a variety of clinical settings, with a diverse adult clinical population. The authors advocate for the importance of considering all aspects of evidence-based practice (i.e., best available research, clinician’s expertise, and experience, as well as clients’ preferences and idiosyncrasies) when conducting assessments and delivering psychological treatments. Special attention is also given to the interdisciplinary aspects of delivering mental health care in today’s fast-paced environments. If you are a seasoned clinician or a beginner therapist, you will surely find this book useful because it provides a general map that can be used regardless of your specific theoretical orientations. The applied nature of the content makes it easy and valuable for readers who wish to apply psychology integration to their own practice. Specifically, case vignettes have been developed to help readers gain a better understanding on how to apply the integrative interprofessional framework into their practice. Finally, professors and supervisors will also find this book worthwhile as the authors incorporated a chapter on the supervision and evaluation of assessment and treatment planning competencies.

Today's practice of psychiatric administration is totally different from that in past years because of the vast changes sweeping the health care and behavioral health care sectors. Reflecting these changes, this completely revamped second edition contains all-new chapters by 68 contributors (most new to this edition). This definitive textbook provides the practitioner and student of administration in behavioral healthcare with an up-to-date compendium focused on five central issues that represent the framework of the debate that will guide the evolution of behavioral health care during the next few years An overview of the evolving behavioral health system, from the rich legacy of the community mental health movement mandated by federal legislation in the 1960s to today's paradigm, which is instead driven by the marketplace phenomena of managed care, information systems, and consumer empowerment. Core and new administrative psychiatry concepts and new roles for behavioral health players, including organizational theories, leadership requirements, planning models, and information system solutions, as well as new models of program evaluation and quality management and innovations in training and human resource development. How selected behavioral health systems are changing and the trend toward integrated systems, addressing the challenge of delivery system configuration and integrated service delivery as the system evolves from cost-based fee for service to managed care settings, as well as important new roles for psychiatric administrators in behavioral health network establishment and maintenance, staffing, capitated financing, population-based care, and outcome management. A comprehensive overview of the current system, from hospitals (including VA and military services) to county mental health departments, child and family service agencies, and HMOs, with new roles for everyone -- psychiatrists, administrators, and mental health clinicians as well as consumers and their families -- in the consumer-focused health care systems of the future. Law and ethics, which includes prisons and civil law issues and considers the special challenge of working within a field where innovation, science, and the marketplace are running well ahead of the legal and bioethics communities. Offering an in-depth study of areas never before covered, this extensively referenced volume concludes with a discussion of future issues in administrative psychiatry, as the "disruptive technologies" that forced the restructuring of banking, automobile manufacturing, consumer electronics, and other industries start to have an impact on health care. Broad in appeal as well as scope, this unique reference will find a worldwide audience -- from administrators facing the challenges of designing and administering a cost-efficient, effective care system to trainees studying for certification, and nearly everyone in between: from social workers to medical directors, staff psychiatrists, nurses, and middle managers of private and public psychiatric hospitals and behavioral health managed care organizations.
