About this book

The purpose of the Mental Health Practice in a Digital World: A Clinicians Guide book is to prepare clinicians to understand, critically evaluate, and embrace well-designed and validated technologies that have the potential of transforming the access, affordability, and accountability of mental healthcare. The reader will become aware of the practical applications of technology in mental health as well as research supporting information technology tools, policy debates. Each chapter contains either examples or scenarios that are relevant to the current practice of mental health care. Policy makers, application developers, scientists, and executives that have lead or supported the use of technologies in real world practice are chapter authors.  The goal for this book is to be the key resource for current and future mental health clinicians in the U.S. and around the world to become familiar with technology innovations and how they impact and improve clinical practice.

Reviews

“This book fills a useful and relatively empty niche, discussing broadly the use of computer technology in mental health. … For mental health professionals unfamiliar with informatics and informaticians new to working in the mental health arena, this book will give much useful information.” (E. P. Hoffer, Computing Reviews, October, 2015)

“Detailing the dynamic nature of the technological landscape of the medical profession, and mental health specifically, this book addresses various aspects of incorporating technological advances into the practice of psychiatry for the benefit of clinicians, support staff, and, most importantly, patients. … The primary audience is mental health professionals actively involved in assessing and treating individuals with mental health disorders, especially those less well-versed in using these technologies to improve efficiency and patient care.” (Steven T. Herron, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2015)
