Critical Issues in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (Paperback) (Sarah Campbell & Dinah Morely & Roger
about this item
In this thought-provoking text, a collection of respected authors with a wealth of academic and practice experience comes together to challenge some of the prevailing ideas serving as the foundation for the current child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) structure.
Seeking to stimulate reflection and debate, the book provides a fresh new perspective on critical issues such as:
â€¢ The place of neuroscience in explaining mental health development in children and adolescents
â€¢ The benefits of moving away from clinic-based practice, and towards an approach that reaches out into the community
â€¢ The negative impact of resource pressures in CAMHS on the core therapeutic relationships between practitioners and young people.
From managers and commissioners to newly qualified practitioners and students, this book will both challenge and energise readers, spurring them on to reconsider some of the pressing CAMH issues of our time.
