About this book


Focusing on long term social work with psychosis sufferers, this book opens with a discussion of influences on practice: how we define mental health and mental illness; and our attitudes to psychiatry and psychiatric services. Using a series of practice axioms, the book explores direct work with sufferers, work for sufferers in the clinical team and in their environment; and work with families. This text offers practical guidelines to social workers and others in an increasingly important field.
