This book offers a resource to aid in implementing psychosocial screening, assessment, and consequently integrating prevention, care and treatment (i.e. pharmacological, psychosocial rehabilitation and psychotherapeutic) in medicine.  It is becoming increasingly recognized that one method of combating spiraling health care costs in developed nations is to integrate psychiatric care into medicine  including primary care settings.  This volume reviews the main issues relative  to the paradigm of a person-centered and recovery-oriented approach that should  imbue all medical areas and specialties. It  proposes integration methods in screening and assessment, clinimetric approach,  dignity conserving care, cross-cultural and ethical aspects, treatment and training  as a basic and mandatory  need of a whole  psychosomatic approach bridging the several specialties in medicine.  As such, the book addresses a topic that all physicians, including primary care and psychiatric professionals in a wide variety of mental health settings are currently discussing, planning and preoccupied with, namely the task of integrating mental health into all the medical fields, including  primary care, cardiology, psychiatry, oncology and so on.
