Description

At present any one of a large number of professional services may be called upon to deal with the distress of individuals and families. They may be concerned successively or simultaneously, in co-operation with one another or in competition. In this profusion of services a large number of problems fail to receive help. This book offers a way of defining the help that the different services can give. The authors maintain that each of the professions has its distinctive approach and that each of these approaches should have its justification in theory and practice.

Readership

Of interest to social workers, psychiatric nurses, counsellors, undergraduate and graduate courses in social work, community medicine personnel and general readership.

Reviews

@qu:...this book achieves its aim, and particularly the latter two thirds make exciting and valuable reading. @source:The British Jnl of Psychiatry @qu:This is an interesting book by a distinguished psychiatrist and a colleague just becoming a consultant. It not only bridges generation gaps but says perceptive and highly intelligent things about the paradoxes and puzzles that confront clinicians, however long and respected their practice....One has to warm to authors whose quotations range from the professional to Stoppard, Shakespeare and Solomon....Read this book. It will make you think. @source:Maladjustment & Therapeutic Education
