How can clinicians receive the necessary training and information to take on the challenges and opportunities of working in the real world of today's managed healthcare? Focusing on working within the realities of managed care, this volume provides resources and ideas for integrating training on the practicalities of managed care into mental health specialties within conventional education programs. Topics covered include: (1) "The Development of Managed Care" (J. M. Schuster); (2) "Managed Care's Impact on Psychiatric Residency Training" (O. J. Thienhaus); (3) "Creating the New Psychiatric Residency" (M. Kaplan); (4) "Managed Care's Impact on Graduate Psychology Training Programs" (D. B. Shaw); (5) "Creating New Models for Clinical Training in Psychology" (M. R. Lovell); (6)"Current Training Issues in Social Work" (A. M. Trachta); (7) "Defining New Educational Needs for Clinical Nurse Specialists" (C. J. Taylor); (8) "A Managed Care Organization's View of Training and Research" (M. G. Fuller); (9) "Continuing Education in the Managed Care Era" (D. A. Teplow). To succeed in the new mental healthcare market, it is vital that clinicians master the skills necessary to satisfy the increasing demand for services within a framework of limited resources. (EMK)
