Care Planning in Mental Health: Promoting Recovery
January 2015, Wiley-Blackwell
'Care Planning in Mental Health: promoting recovery' begins by addressing the concept of care planning from the ground up beginning with a discussion of care planning itself before moving on to practical issues of application relevant to the contemporary mental health landscape. A crucial backdrop of genuine context is provided in the middle section where personal experiences of care planning are shared allowing the core theme of the book to then be explored – that of promoting recovery. The final chapters draw the key issues together providing practical, up to date and evidence based discussion on how the idea of recovery can best be addressed and achieved through successful assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation.
