A Practical Guide to Recovery-Oriented Practice: Tools for Transforming Mental Health Care

Free sample

This book takes a lofty vision of "recovery" and of "a life in the community" for every adult with a serious mental illness promised by the U.S. President's 2003 New Freedom Commission on Mental Health and shows the reader what is entailed in making this vision a reality. Beginning with the historical context of the recovery movement and its recent emergence on the center stage of mental health policy around the world, the authors then clarify various definitions of mental health recovery and address the most common misconceptions of recovery held by skeptical practitioners and worried families. With this framework in place, the authors suggest fundamental principles for recovery-oriented care, a set of concrete practice guidelines developed in and for the field, a recovery guide model of practice as an alternative to clinical case management, and tools to self-assess the recovery orientation of practices and practitioners. In doing so, this volume represents the first book to go beyond the rhetoric of recovery to its implementation in everyday practice. Much of this work was developed with the State of Connecticut's Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, helping the state to win a #1 ranking in the recent NAMI report card on state mental health authorities. Since initial development of these principles, guidelines, and tools in Connecticut, the authors have become increasingly involved in refining and tailoring this approach for other systems of care around the globe as more and more governments, ministry leaders, system managers, practitioners, and people with serious mental illnesses and their families embrace the need to transform mental health services to promote recovery and community inclusion. If you've wondered what all of the recent to-do has been about with the notion of "recovery" in mental health, this book explains it. In addition, it gives you an insider's view of the challenges and strategies involved in transforming to recovery and a road map to follow on the first few steps down this exciting, promising, and perhaps long overdue path.

Partnering for Recovery in Mental Health is a practical guide for conducting person and family-centered recovery planning with individuals with serious mental illnesses and their families. It is derived from the authors’ extensive experience in articulating and implementing recovery-oriented practice and has been tested with roughly 3,000 providers who work in the field as well as with numerous post-graduate trainees in psychology, social work, nursing, and psychiatric rehabilitation. It has consistently received highly favorable evaluations from health care professionals as well as people in recovery from mental illness.

This guide represents a new clinical approach to the planning and delivery of mental health care. It emerges from the mental health recovery movement, and has been developed in the process of the efforts to transform systems of care at the local, regional, and national levels to a recovery orientation. It will be an extremely useful tool for planning care within the context of current health care reform efforts and increasingly useful in the future, as systems of care become more person-centered. Consistent with other patient-centered care planning approaches, this book adapts this process specifically to meet the needs of persons with serious mental illnesses and their families.

Partnering for Recovery in Mental Health is an invaluable guide for any person involved directly or indirectly in the provision, monitoring, evaluation, or use of community-based mental health care.

This groundbreaking new text by Michael Rowe is the first genuinely introductory, comprehensive textbook on policing.

It incorporates all the key areas of a policing course, from the history of the police and the legal framework, to current debates around issues such as diversity, surveillance and the nature of police occupational culture. The book highlights the way in which theory applies to practice at every step.

Introduction to Policing offers:

- Accessible coverage of all essential topics

- An insightful approach, which explores and unpicks contemporary issues in a truly readable and lucid manner

- Excellent learning features throughout, to challenge and stimulate students - including boxed examples, self-check questions and answers, further reading and a full glossary

- A student-friendly writing style that encourages students to engage with debates and to develop critical thinking skills

With its breadth and depth of coverage, extensive learning features and engaging writing style, students of criminology and criminal justice will find Introduction to Policing an indispensable introduction to key themes in modern-day policing.

'The pedagogical features offer good guidance and make the text accessible and relevant, something that many other policing texts fail to do.'

Matthew Millings, School of Law, Liverpool John Moores University

'A clear, concise, user-friendly introduction to policing'

Professor Robert Reiner, London School of Economics

'An invaluable resource for students.... this comprehensive and readable work provides a step-by-step guide to the key issues and debates concerning policing today.'
