This book provides pertinent and practical information about how to create, work, and thrive in an Integrated Care (IC) setting. Unlike other books on the subject, it focuses on the "nuts and bolts" of establishing an IC practice; it also covers material that is often missing from or insufficiently covered in the existing literature. Specific topics discussed include the basics of IC, such as different models and levels of IC and examples of IC initiatives; how to build an IC program, with guidelines for entering and working effectively in a practice, as well as managing the associated economic aspects; ethical issues involved in IC, given the discrepancies between medical and mental health ethical standards; assessment and intervention in IC; cross-cultural and diversity issues in IC; and leadership, consultation, and supervision.
