Divided into three sections, the book covers all the legal, ethical and practical considerations. Section one, Working on the Boundary, starts by exploring the distinction between normal and abnormal behaviour. In section two, What’s Being Said, the authors introduce fictional case studies, which cover a range of possible mental health issues from mild depression and anxiety, through to psychoses and potentially life threatening problems. Section three, Categories of Mental Illness, guides the reader through the definition and management of the more common mental health problems.
This accessible and jargon-free guide to identifying mental illness will prove invaluable for coaches and other related professionals, whatever their level of experience.
