About this Textbook

This valuable resource prepares graduate-level students in social work and other helping professions to provide integrated behavioral health services in community-based health and mental healthcare settings. Responding to the increasing prevalence of behavioral health issues in the general U.S. population and the resulting additional responsibilities for social workers and health professionals, this textbook describes the latest evidence-based practices and interventions for common behavioral health disorders as well as issues related to suicide, violence, substance use, and trauma. Detailed case studies help illustrate the effects of a range of interventions, inviting readers to consider how best to implement behavioral health assessment and treatment practices that are evidence-based, trauma-informed, and recovery-oriented. 

In addition to outlining integrated behavioral health service models and assessment tools, chapters address specific topics such as:

  • Public health approaches to addressing interpersonal violence
  • Intersections of social, behavioral, and physical health
  • Achieving recovery and well-being from behavioral health disorders
  • Motivating clients to achieve and maintain recovery from addiction
  • Stage-based treatments for substance use disorders
  • Cognitive behavioral approaches to treating anxiety and depressive disorders
  • Evidence-based approaches to treating the effects of trauma and PTSD 

Integrated Behavioral Health Practice equips graduate students and health professionals alike to provide sensitive and informed interprofessional care for patients and families while consistently engaging in practices that emphasize recovery and well-being.
