Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

How Managed Behavioral Health Care Impacts Psychotherapeutic Practices
by Abramson, Beth S., Psy.D., Antioch University, 2012, 153; 10807691
Abstract (Summary)

The cost of health and mental health care is a growing problem for the United States. Managed care evolved as a way to continue providing quality services in a cost-effective fashion. In the mental health field, some individuals believe managed care reduces the quality of treatment. This exploratory study investigates current sentiments among mental health clinicians regarding managed care’s impact on mental health treatment and looks at how clinicians practice in light of managed care’s guidelines for treating patients. This study explores the current impact of managed care compared with managed care’s first detectable impact in the 1980s.
