Everything you didn’t know about the effectiveness of evidence-based psychotherapy in the university setting Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health presents an overview of EBP theory, research, and practice with a focus on the key issues in this growing field. The book features individual chapters on depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and alcohol abuse, and includes a special section on training in EBP through college counseling center based practicums and internships. Contributors address common concerns and issues about EBP and present recommendations for future practice and research in college counseling centers. College counseling center administrators and staff face the increasing challenge of providing services that address the unique stresses and dynamics facing students who often deal with multiple co-existing disorders as well as the normal developmental challenges of adjusting to college life. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health provides mental and behavioral health professionals with insight into the considerable contrast between theory, practice, and research in EBP as they evaluate its effectiveness on campus. The book looks at which evidence-based methods are currently used for clinical assessment and treatment, how evidence-based approaches apply to the therapy practiced on most campuses, and what the implications are for practice and research in university mental health settings. Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health examines evidence-based treatment of: alcohol related issues (personalized feedback, attitudinal change techniques, skills-based approaches, single-session interventions) depression (length of psychotherapy, diagnostic purity, lack of adherence to specific theoretical models) anxiety disorders (effectiveness studies, efficacious studies, common factors, therapist-relationship factors) eating disorders (EBP research paradigms, populations studied, interventions, assessments and outcome measures, multicultural considerations) Evidence-Based Psychotherapy Practice in College Mental Health also offers suggestions for college counseling center clinical supervisors on how to incorporate EBP training while balancing common concerns about the applicability of EBP in working with college students. This unique book is an important resource for all practitioners working in university settings—from practicum students to seasoned professionals.

Young adults enter college with many challenges—complicated family dynamics, identity issues, and extreme pressure to succeed, among others. Students may also have mental health difficulties, ranging from adjustment disorders to mood disorders, and growing numbers of them are seeking help on campus. But these students are also resilient and eager to learn, stepping onto campus with hope for a new and better phase of life. Doris Iarovici, a psychiatrist at Duke University Counseling and Psychological Services, sees in college and university mental health services an opportunity for mental health professionals to bring about positive change with young people during a crucial period of their development. Dr. Iarovici describes the current college mental health crisis and narrates how college mental health services have evolved along with changes in student populations. She discusses students’ lifestyle problems and psychiatric concerns, using case vignettes to explore a variety of interventions. Included are discussions of substance abuse, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, depression and anxiety, and culture clashes. Problems uniquely addressed in this book include sleep disturbances and perfectionism. An essential component of the volume is a guide to making emergency assessments, from risk classification and hospitalization to public safety and communication within and outside the campus community. -- Victor Schwartz, Medical Director, The Jed Foundation, co-editor of Mental Health Care in the College CommunityJerald Kay, M.D., past Chair, American Psychiatric Association Committee and Caucus on College Mental Health, co-editor of Mental Health Care in the College Community

Practitioners encounter patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) with surprising frequency; indeed, 1 in 10 emergency room visits and 1 in 20 primary care appointments are estimated to involve people with BPD. Applications of Good Psychiatric Management for Borderline Personality Disorder: A Practical Guide was written not for the psychiatrist engaged in lengthy and complex psychotherapy with these patients but for the generalist who needs the basic skills to deliver good care to this sizeable patient population in need of help. This guide condenses the vast expanse of the latest scientific research and describes the use of good psychiatric management (GPM) with different patient populations, in conjunction with different modalities, for different professions, and in different treatment settings. Constructed carefully by two leading psychiatrists in the field of BPD, the book is designed for maximum utility with stand-alone chapters offering clear guidelines for managing BPD. Topics and features include the following: - Case vignettes, which are designed to make the book practical and eminently useful, provide "decision points" where alternative interventions are proposed and discussed, demonstrating how to apply the concepts outlined in the chapter. Although the authors review the relative merits of these interventions, the presentation promotes active learning and the ability to adapt to unpredictable clinical realities. - Challenges to implementing GPM that are specific to a particular treatment setting -- consultations, inpatient and outpatient settings, emergency departments, and colleges -- are directly addressed so the guidelines are immediately relevant to the target audience of each chapter.- Clinicians from a variety of fields, including social workers, primary care providers, psychopharmacologists, and training supervisors, care for patients with BPD, and the book makes concrete suggestions about how to apply GPM in a range of practice types.- Implementation of GPM in a brief format and how it can be applied to other personality disorders is also addressed. It explains how GPM can be integrated with other evidence-based treatments for BPD, such as dialectical behavior therapy, mentalization-based treatment, and transference-focused psychotherapy. Written in a down-to-earth style, this case management text will appeal to the resident on call, the specialist, and the generalist. Above all, Applications of Good Psychiatric Management for Borderline Personality Disorder: A Practical Guide addresses the challenges specific to different treatment contexts to help busy clinicians provide informed, effective care for their patients with BPD.

As the first attempt to synthesize the movement toward widespread implementation of evidence-based mental health practices, this groundbreaking collection articulates the basic tenets of evidence-based medicine and shows how practices proven effective by clinical services research could improve the lives of many people. Intended to stimulate much-needed public discussion, these remarkable contributions cover both general issues, such as Implementing practices in routine mental health settings, including strategies for disseminating evidence-based practices to staff members Ensuring that efforts to implement such practices are informed by the knowledge and experience of administrators, clinicians, patients, and advocates Integrating evidence-based practices with the recovery model and focusing on guidelines and algorithms for pharmacologic treatment of people with severe mental illness Identifying the policy implications of the movement, particularly in public-sector settings, and describing eight courses of action for addressing the gap between science and practice and specific practices, such as Describing critical components of practices for which substantial evidence exists, such as supported employment, dual diagnosis services, and assertive community treatment Developing an evidence base for particular populations, such as children and adolescents and geriatric patients; and for clinical subgroups, such as patients with severe mental illness and posttraumatic stress disorder-and implementing a range of practices for each population Debate in public forums is critical to explaining the benefits of evidence-based care and allaying the fears of patients, practitioners, administrators, policy makers, and vested interest groups that evidence-based care excludes them from the decision-making process. Patients need to know that their individual characteristics, preferences, and autonomy are highly valued and won't be discounted by rigid adherence to the particular treatments. Practitioners need to know about the credibility of the evidence base and about new techniques and responsibilities and to understand that their favorite practices won't necessarily be excluded during initial attempts to implement evidence-based practices. Administrators and policy makers need to know about financing, organizing, implementing, and sustaining new practices. Finally, vested interest groups need to know that the introduction of evidence-based practices doesn't mean that what they do now is ineffective. This unique and densely informative volume will be welcomed by mental health care professionals and by lawmakers, planners, administrators, and others who are charged with the responsibility of providing effective care to vulnerable populations.
