Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

These four highly experienced behavioral health consultants (BHCs) use the 5A's model of behavior change (assess, advise, agree, assist, arrange) to offer insightful instruction to medical and behavioral health providers working together in primary care settings. Relying on rigorous reviews of evidence as well as creativity derived from experience, the authors methodically address the most common problems in primary care, ranging from postpartum depression to prescription medication abuse. This is a desktop reference for practicing BHCs and a basic text for health psychology and medical social work students.
--Patricia J. Robinson, PhD, author of Behavioral Consultation and Primary Care and Treating Depression in Primary Care

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.
--Cynthia D. Belar, PhD, ABPP, Executive Director, Education Directorate, American Psychological Association; coauthor of Clinical Health Psychology in Medical Settings: A Practitioner's Guidebook, Second Edition

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.
--Rodger Kessler, PhD, ABPP, Berlin Family Health, Fletcher Allen Health Care, Montpelier, VT

I am a Behavioral Health Specialist (LCSW) working in a community based family practice medical setting in Maine. We are in the beginning stages of working to become a Patient Centered Medical Home practice and I have found this book to be a valuable resource. Considerations are presented in an order and manner that is very useful. I have shown it to many professionals that I collaborate with and used it as a helpful go-to reference. The book contains many ideas for: assessment tools; communication with medical professionals; "marketing" oneself within the practice setting; collaboration efforts and; improving efficiency & effectiveness; working with medical professionals within fast-paced medical settings; etc. This book is very helpful to me as I transition from a traditional psychotherapy setting to the Medical Home model within an outpatient medical setting.

Great book for trained therapists to use as a desktop resource and lovely for use with trainees. I initially had difficulty accessing the online materials but APA seems to have resolved the problem so you can easily download forms and patient hand outs.

I work in primary care behavioral health as a clinical psychology intern. I have used this book most weeks throughout my year at a primary care clinic for: 1) refreshing my knowledge of the medical dx I will be working with, 2) visualizing an assessment and treatment plan before the initial visit, and 3) generating helpful intervention and homework ideas during the course of treament. I would recommend this book as a helpful suppliment to training in integrated behavioral health and as a reference for the daily practice of such.

I have been working in the social work field for 10 years; however, just started a new job working in the primary care setting. I found this resource to be invaluable as I navigate this new position. Having access to the worksheets online has also been a major time saver!! I highly recommend this book to any social worker who is new to the primary care setting.
