Sure, I could take a cheap shot and criticize the politically incorrect references to "the mentally ill" and other non-person-first ways of describing the recipients of psychiatric services, a dead giveaway (as is the tacky postmodern cover graphic) that this is a document from a previous decade. More seriously, there is no mention of the incipient controversy over seclusion and restraint; the liability and professional image concerns associated with sexual involvement with patients; the profound impact of various forms of trauma on psychopathology, especially the modern scourge of domestic terrorism; and (oops!) no apparent knowledge of the coming battles over scope of practice and prescribing privileges for psychologists (or nurse practitioners for that matter). Although there is clear anticipation of the advent and promise of newer medications, there is no mention of ethnopharmacology or alternative pharmacologic treatments. More important still, the book's contributors miss the boat on the pharmaceutical industry's Faustian bargain with the profession, potentially leading to our loss of soul—or, at least, respectability—within the universe of those who care about the psychosocial part of our comprehensive and holistic identity as health professionals who care for the whole person.
