Description & Coverage
Description:

Mental health practitioners often overlook initial stabilization strategies and interventions when providing evidence-informed approaches in order to get to the so-called “important” or “interesting” part of treatment. For many mental health practitioners, the “important” or “interesting” component of treatment includes insight and therapeutic processing work. Some mental health practitioners are not implementing vital stabilization strategies before entering the so-called deeper components of therapeutic interventions. Proponents of a stabilization approach maintain that a level of stabilization, prior to therapeutic insight or processing-based interventions, increases the likelihood of an individual benefiting from therapeutic processing, exposure, and insight-based work. Further, individuals who have achieved a level of stabilization prior to therapeutic insight or processing-based interventions have been identified as being less likely to drop out of treatment.

Stabilization Approaches in Mental Health Care is a critical reference source that educates mental health practitioners in a range of trauma-informed approaches and resources that promote stabilization, provides a guide for the practical application of stabilization-based therapy, and offers insights into stabilization as it is applied across a variety of therapeutic approaches. Providing readers with explanations of key concepts, strategies to overcome barriers in the safe application of a range of therapeutic techniques, and resources that can be used across a variety of treatment settings and clinical diagnoses, this book is ideal for psychiatrists, counselors, psychologists, clinical social workers, mental health professionals, researchers, academicians, and students who seek to provide a safer therapeutic intervention when providing evidence-informed mental health care.
