Reviews

“It is intended as a resource for researchers, graduate students, and clinicians and related professionals/practitioners in psychology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, rehabilitation therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and others in related mental health and medical disciplines. … Of merit, this book focuses on the humanistic care of individuals and treating them with respect. It is my hope that this is how we treat our patients.” (Michael Easton, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
