"The book's focus is on providing the behavioral clinician with new skill sets tailored to the treatment of problems commonly encountered in primary care, such as depression, PTSD, ADHD, substance abuse, chronic illness, anxiety disorders, asthma, and diabetes. With an emphasis on presenting practical assessment and treatment strategies, each chapter draws on case examples and firsthand experience to facilitate the integration of the mental health care provider into the primary care setting. While many books have weighed the ideological, economic, and political ramifications of an integrated system of health care delivery, the present volume is among the first to cut through to the pragmatic level, providing empirically informed clinical recommendations tested "in the trenches" of integrated care, with the aim of developing a more cost-efficient and effective health care model. Behavioral Integrative Care is an essential tool for the growing ranks of mental health clinicians, physicians, primary care administrators, and educators who are preparing for imminent changes in health care delivery."--BOOK JACKET.
