This text is the `missing behavioral link' for the family physician. It is both The 5-Minute Consultant and a valuable reference text all wrapped up in one. I will use it often and heartily recommend it to colleagues who want to provide better care.
--Thomas McKnight, MD, MPH, AFR, Col., Family Medicine Clinic, Hurlburt Field, FL
The authors have provided an extraordinary set of resources for behavioral health professionals working in primary care. They offer a useful conceptual framework to guide practice as well as a toolbox replete with sample transcripts, checklists, and patient handouts.

This book describes and embodies the best of behavioral health consultant practice. It is focused, economical, practical, and capable of making a crucial difference. It gives the reader a plethora of useful tools and careful instructions on how to use them. It is grounded in evidence and built on experience. I think its usefulness will keep growing as behavioral health practice in primary care grows beyond co-located separate services into an integrated approach that is as undifferentiated as the needs of the patients we serve.
--Alexander Blount, EdD, Director of Behavioral Science, Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worster
This timely volume is important for all administrators, psychologists, and physicians who focus on the reality that there is no effective primary health care without the integration of medicine and psychology. The authors have gone through the trials, tribulations, and successes of generating behavioral health and medicine collaboration. Through this volume they share the insight and knowledge gained from their initiatives.
