As many as one in four adults in the workforce will suffer from psychiatric illness in a given year. Such illness can have serious consequences -- job loss, lawsuits, workplace violence-yet the effects of mental health issues on job functioning are rarely covered in clinical training. In addition, clinicians are often asked to provide opinions on an employee's fitness for work or an evaluation for disability benefits, only to find themselves embroiled in complex legal and administrative conflicts. A unique collaboration between a renowned clinical professor of psychiatry and a noted legal expert, Evaluating Mental Health Disability in the Workplace approaches the topic from two distinct areas: the legal context and issues relevant to disability and disability-related evaluations, and the interplay of factors in the relationship between work and psychiatric illness. From this dual perspective, the authors advocate for higher professional standards ensuring that employers, evaluees, or third parties are provided with the most reliable information.

Key features of the book:

A robust assessment model of psychological disability in the workplace

Practice guidelines for conducting workplace mental health disability evaluations

Legal and ethical aspects of employment evaluations, especially as they differ from clinical procedure

Examination of the process of psychiatric disability development

Issues specific to evaluations for Social Security, Workers' Compensation, and other disability benefit programs

Review of relevant administrative and case law.

As an introduction to these complex issues or for the further improvement of evaluation skills, Evaluating Mental Health Disability in the Workplace is a timely reference for psychiatrists, psychologists, forensic mental health specialists, and attorneys in this field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the reviews: "Liza H. Gold and Daniel W. Shuman have written an extremely comprehensive and detailed volume addressing all aspects of the complex and often controversial field of evaluating claims of mental health disability. The work serves as a treatise, a textbook, and a manual. ... Evaluating Mental Health Disability in the Workplace is a tour-de-force. ... For a practitioner new to this field, this is a text to be read ... as well as referred to for advice regarding specific questions and issues." (David M. Reiss, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 55 (5), February, 2010)
