    Working with Dual Diagnosis

    In the UK it is estimated that a third of patients in mental health services have a substance use problem, and that half of patients in drug and alcohol services have a mental health problem. Part of Palgrave's Foundations of Mental Health series, this book explores the intertwined issues of substance use and mental health as a social phenomenon and offers a critical, informative guide to understanding dual diagnosis. Written by authors with extensive experience within mental health and drug treatment services, Working with Dual Diagnosis explores areas that are key to understanding the relationship between the two, including: • models for understanding substance use, mental health and the correlation of complex social and psychological factors;• treatment processes for working with individuals, groups and families and within a community setting;• the historical social, political, economic and legislative context of mental health and substance use;• practice implications for dual diagnosis, including how practitioners can work with and promote better treatment, after care and support for those experiencing dual diagnosis issues. Enriched with reflective exercises, case studies and key points, this book will inform all work related to dual diagnosis populations within health, social and criminal justice service, and is an essential text for social work, nursing, occupational therapy and probation students.

  • The Challenge of Racism in Therapeutic Practice

    Racism exists in today's society in many different forms and, for a huge number of people, is a fact of everyday life. Inspired and informed by the author's own research, this uniquely engaging book brings the focus to how racism affects the therapeutic relationship, creatively exploring the subject of working with people of African, Caribbean, Asian and Mixed heritage in both therapeutic practice and clinical supervision. Unpacking the latest concepts and theories, and offering a wealth of real-life stories and examples, the author reflects on how the challenge of everyday racism, as well as the enduring, intergenerational pain caused by historical racism, can affect the therapeutic dynamic, and how practitioners can deliver a truly inclusive therapeutic service that tackles these issues sensitively. Packed full of thoughtful, supportive advice, The Challenge of Racism in Therapeutic Practice draws on layers of experience to guide the reader through complex intercultural issues with a voice of empathy and understanding.

  • Dancing between Hope and Despair

    Why is hope so fundamental to our existence?In considering this and many other questions, this evocative book introduces the reader to the repeated shifting, or 'dance', between hope and despair that is so often encountered by practitioners working with profoundly traumatised individuals. Drawing on a broad range of theoretical perspectives and illustrated by a wealth of case studies and first-hand experiences, the book brings a sharp focus to the ways in which therapeutic relationships can draw individuals out of the constant oscillation between light and dark. It provides an insightful and thoughtful discussion not just about despair itself, but about how to be with despair: about how practitioners can help clients turn towards the experiences of emotional pain, and stand with them in the face of it. Topics covered include: • The concept of hope, and the differences between realistic and illusory hope• How trauma and attachment failure at different life stages can contribute to the loss of hope• The benefits of taking a highly relational approach to hopelessness, with an emphasis on integrating mind, body and emotions.   Informed by the author's own years of experience in the field of psychotherapy, this engaging and stimulating book provides practical guidance on how students, trainees and practitioners can inspire fresh hope in deeply troubled clients.

    How do past relationships shape who we are today? Attachment theory offers a powerful model for explaining how our earliest relationships affect not only our development as children, but also our feelings and behaviour as adults.   This succinct and highly readable book offers the perfect introduction to a fascinating and fast-growing field. It explains the key concepts in attachment theory and describes how the main attachment types play out both in childhood and later life.

Students and professionals alike from across the fields of psychology, counselling, health and social work will find this an illuminating and thought-provoking guide to the rich complexity of human behaviour.

  • Moral Disengagement

    Why do good people do cruel things? How do people selectively disengage from moral behavior? Why do seemingly moral people choose to shield wrongdoers from blame or incarceration?One of the most influential psychologists and thinkers of our time, Albert Bandura, explores these questions and offers compelling reasons for why we choose to disconnect from acting morally. Based on his landmark research in self efficacy and moral agency, Dr. Bandura carefully weaves the story of self (both psychological and biological) and others (people, culture, and environment) to show that moral disengagement is not a simple process that once understood will fix all social ills, but rather a complex web of interactions that we all recognize but struggle to explain. The book illuminates how moral disengagement plays an active role in daily life, highlighting major events of our time such as the Newtown massacre, Catholic priests scandal, the Penn State sexual abuse cover up, and the Lance Armstrong case.This bold new book examines: • The levels of moral disengagement involved in the death penalty from public policy issues, jury decisions, to the executioners and execution process.• Social and moral justifications as they relate to almost every major industry in our society such as the gun, entertainment, tobacco, and financial industries.• The role of moral disengagement in terrorism, its nature and how terrorists manage the morality of using terrorizing violence as the means of social change. • How we disregard, minimize, and dispute the effects of climate change and environmental sustainability

  • The Content of Psychological Distress

    The Content of Psychological Distress makes the case for focusing psychological attention on the content of people's distressing experience. The growing demand for counselling and therapy in difficult financial times has created pressure to keep work short and highly structured. This has increased reliance on set procedures and categories at the expense of the personal and specific. The book looks at the rationale for, and practical steps involved in, taking individuals' accounts of their concerns as a starting point. It treats these as a foundation on which approaches of various kinds can be laid. It considers the impact of doing so on building relationships and improving the accuracy and richness of the work undertaken. The book is illustrated with examples from general mental health and particular psychological therapies, as well as with applications to pain, intensive care, cancer, paediatrics and forensic learning difficulties.This is a timely and important book for students, trainees and practitioners that contains reflections on the historical and philosophical background to the subject. It relates what is argued to a range of existing ideas and approaches concerned with making psychological work ethical and patient-centred.

  • Resilience in Childhood

    With an emphasis on promoting self-reliance, autonomy and independence, this exciting new book provides a contemporary and holistic analysis of the childhood resilience. It recognises 'resilience in childhood' as a complex construct, critically deconstructs it by drawing upon a wide range of academic disciplines and practices, and provides an account of the factors that help and hinder the development of resilience during childhood and adolescence. Part I unpacks definitions of resilience and its "construction" over the last 50 years. Part II examines psychological, sociological and neurobiological perspectives that contribute to our understanding of how childhood resilience can be developed and fostered. Part III explores strategies and approaches relating theory to current intervention practice and policy drivers. Application to professional practice within a multi-agency context is explored throughout.Importantly, this book seeks to develop the notion of 'the promise of resilience' and establish the bond between capabilities built up in childhood and the promise of a positive successful future. Efforts to foster and build effective skills that lead to resilience will result in long-lasting abilities to positively navigate through life's challenges and to become the key architect of one's own success in later life.
