The challenge of meeting the needs of severely mentally ill individuals is one of the nation's top priorities. An increasing number of state programs are allocating more resources toward the care and treatment of the severely mentally ill. This book addresses many recent developments in this area including dimensions and complexities of service needs; conceptual and empirical foundations; model training programs; faculty development, curriculum development, and continuing education programs; and pre- and postdoctoral internship programs.
