An understanding of the theories that shape and define mental health policy and practice is essential for every mental health nurse. This book gives you the knowledge you need to understand those complex and varying theories, concepts and approaches. It helps you to deconstruct mental health and become a critical practitioner by drawing on a wealth of literature and research. Topics covered include cognitive behavioural therapy, recovery, risk and critical theories.
Every Chapter includes:
- Learning objectives and chapter summaries which highlight the key points.
- A detailed case study which challenges you to relate theory to practice.
- An explanation of the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.
It will be essential reading for all students of mental health nursing at pre-registration and practitioner level. It will also be valuable reading for those taking broader courses in mental health.
