Description

Care planning and delivery forms an essential part of everyday practice for all mental health practitioners. 'Care Planning in Mental Health: promoting recovery' outlines essential concepts of care and its delivery, and explores how such practitioners and other health professionals can plan to provide effective care based on up to date methodology and proven techniques. The concept of recovery is examined as an inherent aspect of the care planning process and practical guidance, theoretical background and personal ‘real life’ context are provided within the overall framework of planning for mental health recovery.

'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.
