Mental Health Care: Macmillan Caring Series by Emma Lee


pdf epub fb2 djvu



A text in the Macmillan Caring Series which links basic theoretical aspects of mental health to their practical application in the workplace. The focus is the needs of the individual client, blended with an understanding of the practical realities of care and the legal and other demands of the larger setting in which it is provided. No prior theoretical knowledge is assumed. There are five main sections: thinking about mental health care which deals with images, causes, symptoms and treatment of mental disorder, together with the background legislation; caring in the mental health setting, which covers some of the practicalities of receiving people for care; working with people individually; working with people in groups; and supporting clients through personal difficulties - such as in times of loss, during difficult relationships. Each section includes a wide range of practical activities, case studies and opportunities for reflection and research. Readers will be helped to acquire professional, compassionate caring skills. The content covers the NVQ/SVQ level 3 mental health care endorsement (links in the text). It will also be useful for Advanced GNVQ health and social care candidates and for carers looking after a relative or friend at home in the community.
