Maneuvering the Maze

Skills for Mental Health Practitioners

About The Book

In an effort to add clarity to the rapidly developing field of managed mental health care, Kevin Corcoran and Vikki Vandiver approach the field with expertise and research meant to help mental health professionals meet the needs of both managed mental health care and their clients.

As practitioners of every discipline are learning to cope with the ever-shifting world of the managed mental health care system, a variety of demands, restrictions, and procedures from the authorization of treatment to the evaluation of services cloud the practice and deter professionals from utilizing it with their clients.

In order to add a sense of uniform and procedure to the field, Corcoran and Vandiver have created a guide to understanding managed mental health care, complete with a variety of tools used by managed care organizations to demonstrate the need for clinical services and the structure of systematic interventions while evaluating the quality of care.

Helping practitioners and students in every mental health discipline, Maneuvering the Maze of Managed Care inspires its readers to work effectively, efficiently, and successfully with their clients within the purview of managed mental health care.
