Reflective Practice in Mental Health is the authoritative, definitive guide to psycho-social theory and practice in mental health.
Featuring contributions from eminent experts, the book uses case studies to illustrate and address the complexities and dilemmas faced by practitioners involved in mental health care, and enables the reader to reflect on their understanding. Case studies from a variety of theoretical perspectives are included, covering psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioural therapy, systemic family therapy, attachment therapy and therapeutic group-work.

This book will be a crucial and invaluable text for social work practitioners and social work students aiming to ensure the very best practice in mental health social work, and aims to be the seminal text for mental health psychosocial practice.
