This text focuses on the psychological aspects of functioning, disability, and health as classified by the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). It provides a strong focus on psychopathology as classified in the DSM-IV TR, and how psychopathology can be integrated into the ICF to assist counselors to more effectively diagnose and treat disability-related psychiatric illness. Key features of this book: You can develop knowledge and understanding of mental health functioning and impairment based on the ICF and the DSM-IV-TR. You can apply the ICF conceptual framework to planning mental health assessment and related interventions. You can analyze diagnostic information from the DSM-IV-TR with the ICF's classification of functioning, disability, environmental barriers, and health.|This textbook focuses on psychopathology as classified in the DSM-IV-TR, and how it can be used with the ICF to assist mental health professionals while diagnosing and treating people with mental disorders. The book serves as a natural bridge between the DSM-IV-TR and the ICF, as a useful companion reference text. Students will learn the utility of using the ICF's biopsychosocial approach for conceptualising mental health functioning (body functions and structures), disability (activity limitations and participation restrictions), and contextual factors (environmental and personal factors). The ICF's collaborative approach teaches students a conceptual framework that guides the selection of appropriate interventions, and informs the evaluation of treatment efficacy.
