This book is the first to systematically describe the key components necessary to ensure successful implementation of Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) across mental health settings and non-mental health settings that require behavioral management.  This resource is designed by the leading experts in CPS and is focused on the clinical and implementation strategies that have proved most successful within various private and institutional agencies.  The book begins by defining the approach before delving into the neurobiological components that are key to understanding this concept.  Next, the book covers the best practices for implementation and evaluating outcomes, both in the long and short term.  The book concludes with a summary of the concept and recommendations for additional resources, making it an excellent concise guide to this cutting edge approach.


Collaborative Problem Solving is an excellent resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and all medical professionals working to manage troubling behaviors.  The text is also valuable for readers interested in public health, education, improved law enforcement strategies, and all stakeholders seeking to implement this approach within their program, organization, and/or system of care.
