The health care system continues to change rapidly in response to skyrocketing medical costs and private sector forces. Consumers, investigators, and clinicians have become more cognizant of the urgent need for systematic integration of data on the cost-effectiveness of psychotherapy. This volume, the first of its kind, reflects a focused integration of the work of some of the world's most distinguished mental health investigators. It spans the domains of clinical, treatment, and services research, while incorporating a critical focus throughout on mental health economics. This handbook is designed to serve as a guide, providing substantive direction to a coalescing area of inquiry. Organized as an introductory text to a newly burgeoning field, the book includes, among others, step-by-step introductions to the approaches used by economists to evaluate cost-effectiveness, descriptions of key research instruments and where to get them, and critical assessments of the pros and cons of alternative research design strategies.(1993).
