About this book

Contributed by experts who’ve developed integrative healthcare initiatives with strengths in the areas of policy and principles, organizational systems, or clinical practice. These contributors will illustrate the concepts and describe the nuts and bolts of their integration initiatives. In the conclusion of each section, the editors will construct a template to systematically evaluate these essential elements. This template will organize the information to help stakeholders compare and contrast the strengths, resources, limitations and challenges of how each model meets the vision of integrative healthcare. In the concluding section the information in the preceding sections connects to provide a coherent synopsis of the common themes and practices, from the macro to micro levels of care, which foster successful integration of the medical and psychosocial systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Written for anyone interested in behavioral health, the book is especially relevant for clinicians, researchers, administrators, and policy-makers involved in the delivery, design, or funding of healthcare services. … a welcome addition to a rapidly changing field. It provides a timely snapshot of the present and direction for the future of behavioral health. … professors and students, clinicians and researchers, and especially policy-makers and politicians will read it and come to understand the valuable contribution behavioral health can make to providing cost-effective healthcare.” (Thomas P. Guck, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)

“Integrated Behavioral Health in Primary Care will be a useful resource for mental health practitioners working in primary care settings. Physicians and other primary care providers will also find this text informative, as it will provide new insights into the psychological and behavioral issues facing the individuals whom they treat in the primary care setting and offer ways to capitalize on integration opportunities.” (Barbara Cubic, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 59 (19), 2014)
