Review quote

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to occupational therapy students, new practitioners and more experienced practitioners who want to refresh and update theirknowledge""International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, August 2008, Vol 15, No 8" .."The book is a noteworthy achievement in the manner in which it brings together so many disparate experienced voices in mental health practice. The outcome is a very valuable reference book not only for the student practitioner, at whom it is primarily aimed, but also for practising therapists wanting to keep abreast of recent developments.""British Journal of Occupational Therapy February 2009 72(2)"
