The multimodal treatment of acute psychiatric illness involves a set of integrated, systematic interventions that stabilize individuals with severe mental illness and help them avoid unnecessary psychiatric hospitalization. This volume focuses on those suffering from schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, severe anxiety, and substance dependence, and provides individual practitioners and professional teams with the tools for responding to crisis and delivering acute care. The authors bolster the text with real-world case examples, helpful diagrams, and printable worksheets.
