Kingdon / Finn Tackling Mental Health Crises

Tackling Mental Health Crises provides a practical guide to combining social and psychological responses to mental health problems.
David Kingdon and Marie Finn look at what constitutes a crisis, be it an individual crisis presentation or a situational crisis for services. They reject current diagnostic approaches to mental health, focussing instead on a symptom-led approach and keeping an awareness of the intervention experience for clients and carers throughout. Subjects covered include:

engaging and assessing the client
risk assessment and management
emotional, behavioural, cognitive and physical presentations
service teams and settings.

The emphasis throughout is on taking a holistic look at crisis prevention and management, encompassing both the work that takes place at an individual level and the wider impact of societal and political issues.
Containing clear direction and practical advice, combined with numerous case studies and commentary from users and carers themselves, this bookwill be of great use to anyone involved with dealing with mental health crises.
