Family Physicians need to be expert and active providers of mental health care. Their rapport with patients and accessibility enable them to control minor mental health conditions before these problems become critical. Brief Mental Health Interventions for the Family Physician is an ideal resource for Family Physicians. It provides a "refresher course" of sensible paths toward resolution of common mental health problems. It features an easy to read style, and well-focused references. The book summarizes the basic components of brief therapy and reviews how to conduct a brief therapy interview. It also includes chapters on specific clinical conditions and situations that routinely confront the family physician. Each chapter includes an outline, a case example or vignette, and a concise discussion of brief therapy strategies for the disorder. Primary care physicians will find this convenient text an ideal handy reference and review
