Evidence-based Policy and Practice in Mental Health Social Work

Second Edition


264 pages | Learning Matters
Mental health social workers work within multidisciplinary teams, often based in health settings. The variety of services they work within are shaped by mental health policy that is increasingly being influenced by research evidence of 'what works'. This fully-revised second edition has a new chapter on systematic reviews and greater coverage of the impact of the 2007 amendment to Mental Health Act 1983 on mental health practitioners and services.

I have found chapter 6 of this title particularly useful to guide the students around the use of framing, this is congruent with the teaching we consider with risk assessment, assessment and the models of framing
