Editorial Reviews


‘What is most impressive is the breadth of topic and the attention to the literature base, supported by reference to web-based sources. For these reasons, it should, as the editors indicate in the introduction, become a core text for a variety of readers, qualifying students taking specialist mental health modules, mental health social workers and policy makers. I feel that the book will also be accessible to other professionals in the field.’British Journal of Social Work

‘The editors have done something important for social work by offering a volume—one they hope is both textbook and reference book—that rejects the bifurcation of dialogue around the mental health struggles our clients face and the most recalcitrant social problems that serve as the backdrop and context to their lives and ours’Journal of Teaching in Social Work

‘This book would be an excellent text for social work graduate students, as well as students from other disciplines, as it balances out the medical model to which many students are exposed in their internships and society as a whole…[it] is a strong example of how the perspective of social work is critical in expanding the frame of assessment and treatment in mental health and clinical practice to include the social and contextual issues that are inextricable from the struggles that our clients face.’Clinical Social Work Journal
