Practitioner and consultant Ellenhorn knows the mental health system kicks into action when people threaten to kill themselves. He also knows that the needs of the individual patient are too complex to be alleviated merely by knee-jerk crisis management that includes hospitalization, increased dosages, and increased and sometime inappropriate attention. Ellenhorn uses client vignettes along with accessible text to describe how individuals and the system combine to produce career patients, in which the individuals becomes completely dependent and the system alternately holds them close or evicts them. He believes a very different approach, which includes team treatment planning through brainstorming, avoiding traditional medical solutions and enhancing authentic encounters with patients helps patients focus on healing and on realistic life goals. Focusing on both client and therapist, Ellenhorn provides practitioners with alternative methods of documentation that protect clinicians from concerns about liability.
