"Psychopathology and Function" by Dr. Bette Bonder has been an essential resource in the field of occupational therapy for more than 20 years. It is a one-of a kind text that compares diagnostic criteria used by mental health professionals with the framework used by occupational therapists and it identifies deficits in occupational performance that require occupational therapy intervention. Updated and revised, this Fourth Edition includes recent research literature regarding epidemiology, causes, and treatment of psychiatric disorders. New to the fourth edition: Chapter objectives; Overview of the history in occupational therapy mental health; a case study at the end of each chapter; new and expanded tables; expanded discussion of DSM-V; expanded discussion of evidence for practice; expanded and updated Internet resources; and discussion of lifespan considerations for each group of diagnoses. The unique benefits and features of the Fourth Edition: adoption of concepts from the AOTA's "Occupational Therapy Practice Framework" (2nd ed.) ; comparison and contrast of concepts with the DSM-IV-TR and the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health; exploration of current trends in mental health and discussion of their impact on occupational therapy; consideration of evidence-based practice; discussion of occupational therapy in the community and in prevention of mental health disorders; updated research and psychopharmacology; relation between DSM-V and occupational science views of psychosocial deficits explored and analyzed; and instructor's material to supplement the book that includes Instructor's Manual and PowerPoint slides. "Psychopathology and Function, Fourth Edition" will continue the traditions of past editions and remain one of the profession's most looked-to textbooks for recent and critical information on psychiatric diagnosis.
