The biopsychosocial formulation manual; a guide for mental health professionals. (CD-ROM included)

Campbell, William H. and Robert M. Rohrbaugh.



165 pages




Writing for clinical trainees, Campbell (psychiatry, Case Western Reserve U. Schol of Medicine) and Rohrbaugh (psychiatry, Yale U. School of Medicine) provide guidance on the application of the biopsychosocial model first proposed by Dr. George Engel in his 1977 Science article, "The Need for a New Medical Model: A Challenge for Biomedicine." Equally emphasizing each component (biological, psychological, and social), they review the information that clinicians should elicit from their patients and explain how to place it into databases. They then discuss how the databases should be organized to assist clinicians in differential diagnosis, risk assessment, the treatment plan, and the prognosis. The included CD-ROM contains data tables, report templates, a case study, and other materials.
