It has been over a decade since the first edition of Psychiatric Rehabilitation was published. During this time, the field of psychiatric rehabilitation has become an accepted field of practice and study. Every state in the United States and numerous countries now recognize psychiatric rehabilitation as an important component of an array of services designed to help people with severe mental illnesses recover.
The psychiatric rehabilitation field has expanded dramatically in the 1990s and the beginning of this century. Relatively new concepts, such as supported education, recovery, peer support, etc., are now an accepted part of the field’s lexicon. Hundreds of recent journal articles address issues of relevance to psychiatric rehabilitation. These newer concepts and articles are all included in this second edition of Psychiatric Rehabilitation. It examines the historical, conceptual, and empirical base of psychiatric rehabilitation, and it offers a vision for the future.
Highlighted is the technology of psychiatric rehabilitation, which permits the comprehensive training of practitioners, the evaluation of practice, the development and replication of programs, and the integration of a comprehensive psychiatric rehabilitation approach into mental health service systems.
