First published in 1992, Fundamentals of Psychiatric Treatment Planning outlines an approach that quickly became the definitive standard for writing treatment plans. Developed by clinical psychiatrist James A. Kennedy, this practical, intuitive method organizes psychiatric problems into seven categories: psychological impairment, social skills, violence, activities of daily living, substance abuse, medical impairment, and ancillary impairment. Treatment plans are developed using information gathered with the Kennedy Axis V, an instrument that has proven more successful than both the Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) scale and the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS) in establishing baselines and determining outcome measures. Fundamentals of Psychiatric Treatment Planning serves as a powerful, highly effective tool that Promotes a cohesive approach. By using a consistent approach to planning, the clinical team works in concert toward uniform goals and outcomes. Helps staff gather critical information to improve outcomes. For establishing baselines and determining outcome measures, the Kennedy Axis V instrument has proven more successful than both the GAF and the BPRS. Includes many examples to help staff write their own plans. Rich with real-life examples to guide staff, including problem names and descriptions, treatment modalities, and samples of individual plans for each of the seven problem categories.
