From the Back Cover:

With contributions from Jeni Boyd and Sabi Redwood

The way we understand, manage and treat mental illness has changed extensively in recent times, and the roles of mental health practitioners in the NHS are undergoing significant review.

Mental Health and Illness: Questions and Answers for Counsellors and Therapists addresses the common concerns that frequently confront psychotherapists and counsellors in their work with clients.

Beginning with a comprehensive introduction to contemporary issues in mental health, this accessible guide discusses the current definitions of mental health, drawing attention to its complexities and diversities. Each chapter focuses on specific issues, identified by practitioners as being of relevance to their everyday work, such as:

  • understanding and assessing mental illness
  • the relationship between mental health and physical symptoms
  • socio-political influences
  • working collaboratively with other mental health teams
  • professional and legal matters

With its easy-to-use format, this practical and informative volume will be a valuable resource for established psychotherapists and counsellors, as well as those in training.
