Editorial Reviews

Review

"For those who have read the first edition, there is still enough new material here, with more examples of real case histories, to make this a must read text....Rapp and Goscha have achieved what they set out to do: setting out the values and principles and the theory of the Strengths Model, and describing real practices that implement this approach....I would strongly recommend it for social work practitioners in mental health services, but it should also be considered as mandatory reading for all social workers and every mental health discipline." --British Journal of Social Work

"One of the strengths of this book is its wholehearted embrace of the importance of clinical research...This excellent book has much to offer to psychologists and other mental health professionals. It effectively challenges many of the tenets with which we have traditionally approached persons with psychiatric disabilities, and it provides a practical and alternative model for treating them. It is highly recommended in general, and in particular for those of us who work with persons with psychiatric disabilities."--PsycCRITIQUES

"Case managers and those who supervise them will greatly benefit from this highly readable text. In all, its a book that needs to be read and that advocates methods that must be used."--Psychiatric Services

The Strengths Model: Case Management with People with Psychiatric Disabilities
Wonderful book - better and much clearer than the 1st Edition - a must for all people working with people with mental illness. Gives a clear framework for working with people and their strengths - should be on the curriculm for all mental health professionals.

This is the best book for Case Management and working with people in the Behavioral Health field. I absolutely respect and adore the authors of this book and trust the techniques as Charles Rapp has done case management. Also, this book is one of the most respectful and person-centered models around. If you are looking for an excellent model you will find it here! Best wishes in the behavioral health field.
