Mental Health Social Work provides students and practitioners in social work, human services and welfare studies with a thorough understanding of contemporary mental health theory and practice required for beginning practice as a mental health social worker. Testimonials from readers of previous editions are appreciative of the engaging style of writing that facilitates reflective practice for knowledge and skill development in mental health practice. Case studies with reflective and problem-solving questions provide insights into ethical dilemmas and the practical application of theory, models of assessment and interventions. Topics include reality states, changing paradigms, recovery, legislation, policy and practice standards, theory, assessment, diagnosis and interventions. Separate chapters are devoted to suicide and self-harm, alcohol and other drugs, women prisoners and disaster planning and recovery.
