The Handbook of Psychosocial Rehabilitation is designed as a clinical handbook for practitioners in the field of mental health.
It recognises the wide-ranging impact of mental illness and its ramifications on daily life.
The book promotes a recovery model of psychosocial rehabilitation and aims to empower clinicians to engage their clients in tailored rehabilitation plans.
The authors distil relevant evidence from the literature, but the focus is on the clinical setting.
Coverage includes the service environment, assessment, maintaining recovery-focussed therapeutic relationships, the role of pharmacotherapy, intensive case management and vocational rehabilitation.
