The authoritative text on psychiatric rehabilitation, this book covers everything from conceptual and empirical foundations to exemplary program models. Students and practitioners gain the knowledge needed to help adults with psychiatric disabilities move forward in their recovery process and build personally satisfying lives. The book presents tools and strategies for assessing personal needs and strengths, integrating medical and psychosocial interventions, and implementing supportive services in such areas as housing, employment, education, substance abuse, and physical health. Numerous case examples illustrate both the real-world challenges of serious mental illness and the difference that effective interventions can make.

"Corrigan is among the most respected psychologists writing about psychiatric rehabilitation today. This second edition is impressive in its unrelenting focus on understanding the struggles and strengths of people with psychiatric disabilities and helping them embrace recovery and pursue the high quality of life we all want for ourselves. Content on integrated care and wellness self-management is noteworthy, and no one discusses stigma and stigma reduction more forcefully and fully than Corrigan. This book will be welcome in classrooms across the disciplines of social work, nursing, psychology, public health, and psychiatry."--Kia J. Bentley, PhD, LCSW, School of Social Work, Virginia Commonwealth University

"Remarkably scholarly and comprehensive, yet pragmatic. Just as rehabilitation is absolutely essential for functional recovery following a stroke, those who suffer a psychotic brain disorder need myriad rehabilitative interventions to help them triumph over their life-changing illness. This invaluable text should be adopted for classroom teaching as well as clinical training of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, and counselors. Corrigan demonstrates how much can be done to rehabilitate persons with serious mental illness in order to restore their biopsychosocial wellness. That’s why I strongly recommend that every mental health professional read and use this book."--Henry A. Nasrallah, MD, The Sydney W. Souers Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Saint Louis University

"The first edition was authored by a dream team of thinkers and researchers in psychiatric rehabilitation. In the second edition, Corrigan has retained their contributions while updating the content, language, and research base. The volume is packed with information, yet organized in a way that makes it easy to use. For several years, I have required the first edition of this text in my graduate-level course on evidence-based practices, and it has been well received. Students describe it as informative, easy to follow, well balanced, and useful in providing critical and objective assessments of service options, presented in the context of the field’s previous failures and successes. Amid the increasing number of psychiatric rehabilitation textbooks, this second edition continues to offer a unique and valuable blend of information."--Patricia B. Nemec, PsyD, CRC, CPRP, Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Counseling Professions, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

"This is a thorough and sweeping presentation of psychiatric rehabilitation, well suited for the practitioner, educator, advocate, or student. The second edition has several nicely updated sections that deal with critical contemporary issues, and provides a useful historical context for the practice of psychiatric rehabilitation. The volume's grounding in the lives of consumers is particularly important and useful."--John S. Brekke, PhD, Frances Larson Professor of Social Work Research, University of Southern California

"Corrigan has made timely revisions in this second edition. He presents findings from current research, including emerging practices such as early intervention and shared decision making. My students have responded positively to the first edition, and I'm confident that the increased emphasis on concepts and practices such as empowerment, recovery, wellness management, mindfulness, and self-determination will make them even more enthusiastic about this text."--Lynn C. Holley, PhD, ACSW, School of Social Work, Arizona State University  

"Corrigan's second edition remains accessible to students yet demanding in the breadth and depth of material presented. I was impressed with the clear explanations of new knowledge, such as current thinking about causative factors of psychiatric disorders. Most useful to an instructor, the text critically analyzes how research refutes past beliefs and treatment models. Unlike many other texts, this volume integrates the important role of peers and the social context of psychiatric disability, including Corrigan's own leading research on stigma and discrimination."--Layne Stromwall, PhD, MSSW, School of Social Work (Emerita), Arizona State University
