A Primer on the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Process
To advance the understanding of the psychiatric rehabilitation process, Bill Anthony and Marianne Farkas wrote A Primer on the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Process to make perfectly clear the major steps of the process. The authors strongly believe that regardless of the name of the psychiatric rehabilitation program model, the discipline or background of the practitioner, the source of the funding, or the setting in which people are working; people who help people with severe mental illnesses improve their functioning and gain valued roles in the community should be aware of the essentials of the psychiatric rehabilitation process. The Primer is composed of three sections: Understanding the Backgraound and Process of Psychiatric Rehabilitation; Tracking the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Process; and Recording the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Process. Several appendices provide examples to further one's understanding of the process.
