Nurses specialising in the care of the mentally ill or handicapped will find this a book for easy reference and directly relevant to their everyday practice.

This book provides coverage for community care homes and institutional settings.

It includes questions and exercises to encourage debate and discussion.

A comprehensive bibliography enables practitioners to follow-up areas of interest.
