The book begins with two comprehensive and well-researched chapters that introduce community based clinical practice (CBCP) as a model of practice. This book could be a textbook in a course on community-based clinical mental health practice. Chapters from this book could be included in courses on practice with individuals, families, groups, neighborhoods, organizations, and communities, as well as policy, human behavior, research, and diversity.
