Beyond the DSM : Toward a Process-Based Alternative for Diagnosis and Mental Health Treatment, Paperback / softback Book

Beyond the DSM : Toward a Process-Based Alternative for Diagnosis and Mental Health Treatment Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


As a mental health clinician, you know that every client is unique, and a client's symptoms are the result of a complex combination of psychological, environmental, genetic, and neural factors.

However, the de facto DSM model poses considerable constraints on how you can treat clients--often resulting in a one-size-fits-all diagnosis.

This important volume challenges the assumptions and approach made by the DSM, and provides a vision and plan for an evidence-based, process-based approach to individualized care. With contributions from renowned experts in the field--including Steven C.

Hayes, Stefan G. Hofmann, Joseph Ciarrochi, Matthew McKay, Uma Vaidyanathan, Sarah Morris, David Sommers, J.

Scott Fraser, and many more--this groundbreaking book will show you a new way to recognize the complexity of human suffering and human prosperity.

You'll find solid tips for treating a wide variety of psychological issues in a more flexible way. And, finally, you'll come away with a greater understanding of the "processes of change," and how to build a solid foundation for an alternative to syndromal diagnosis. The future of mental health treatment is process-based.

Whether you're a clinician, researcher, student, instructor, or other professional working in the mental health field, this breakthrough volume offers everything you need to understand process-based treatment and create a more customized and effective approach to treating clients.
