'An excellent introduction to the main themes of social work and
mental health. It provides a comprehensive summary of contemporary
debates and perspectives around mental health practice. I would
recommend this to all social work students.' - Philip O'Hare,
University of Central Lancashire
"This book is a timely restatement of the central role of social
work in mental health. In this important work, Coppock and Dunn
have developed a well written and closely argued case for retaining
social work skills as a key part of a truly integrated mental
health system." - Terry Bamford, Director, Social Perspectives
This book provides an authoritative overview of mental health
theory, policy and practice. Exploring the complex moral and
ethical dimensions underpinning the field, the book engages with
the key issues encountered by practitioners working in the modern
mental health system. Using real world scenarios, case studies, and
reflective exercises, it asks students to critically examine the
world of mental health practice from the perspective of users of
mental health services and their carers.
Reflecting the core values, skills and knowledge frameworks
required for professional social work qualification in the mental
health context, this book will enable students to:
- Understand mental health theory and practice as a contested
- Recognise professional differences and inter-professional
- Tolerate uncertainty and complexity in practice.
- Develop critically as reflexive mental health
Included in the text are practice dilemmas, chapter summaries,
and resources to aid further study.
