About this book

This book presents the basic theoretical and historical concepts and it describes current perspectives and data, focusing on good practices in community psychiatry in Greece and in other parts of Europe. Concepts such as the biopsychosocial model, psychiatric reform, psychosocial rehabilitation and the recovery model, as well as new case management models are approached from a critical, anthropocentric perspective.

The current socioeconomic crisis in Europe brings with it new realities in mental health systems. New forms of social suffering are forcing the psychiatric community to re-examine what is considered normal. In order to respond to the complexity of the newly emerging needs, social and community psychiatry has been compelled to broaden the objectives of intervention and research alike, developing new and dynamic relations with complementary scientific fields such as social anthropology, psychoanalysis and microeconomics. The present work is the result of collaboration between professionals from across these different fields.

Reviews

“Social and community psychiatry is a valuable book that increases the knowledge and awareness of mental health problems from critical point of view. It emphasizes importance of outpatient models for providing psychiatric care that include both preventive and therapeutic interventions.” (Vivian Badžim, Alcoholism and Psychiatry Research, Vol. 53 (1), 2017)

“This book examines the immense area of how social and community factors influence the psychiatric health of populations and thus must be considered in developing an appropriate treatment response. … Each chapter begins with an abstract, concludes with a summary and references, and most have helpful graphics. Chapters are well written and informative, and clearly illustrate the different features of a variety of issues on mental health.” (Aaron Plattner, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2016)
