Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eileen Trigoboff, RN, CS, DNS (Buffalo Psychiatric Center)
Description: This is a first edition book that examines the issues of child safety when one or both parents have a mental health problem, as well as the impact of a parental mental health problem on children. The context of multiple cultures is woven throughout the text.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a resource for childcare and mental health professionals to identify and promote ways to work together effectively regarding child protection and the delivery of adult mental health services. The balance among the rights, the needs, and the responsibilities of all parties involved is emphasized. Intricate and profound issues are examined from a variety of perspectives providing a rounded view of the problem and direction for action.
Audience: This book was written to assist professionals and policy makers with the dilemmas of child protection and the delivery of adult mental health services when one or both parents of a child have a mental health problem. The editors and contributors have social work, psychologist, and/or psychiatrist credentials with experience from the clinical and policy arenas.
Features: The extensive exploration into the different levels of family functioning and the development of a service model to support the family within its functional level is striking in both its concept and its potential. The chapters on the context of cultural and ethnic diversity and the qualitative examination of the parent's perspective both bring intricate issues that have great bearing on these problems to the fore.
Assessment: This book is unique in its focus on the connection between a mental health problem and child protection. It is nicely organized and the contributors cover difficult ethical issues evenhandedly. This is an excellent resource for the policy maker and for clinicians faced with the ever-increasing pairing of parental mental illness and children.
From the Publisher
'The Department of Health's injunction to address the interface between child care and adult mental health makes this a timely and welcome book. It provides a thoughtful discussion of how to address the problems of fragmented services, disparate training and the tensions inherent in balancing the interests of adults and children.

All the contributors are senior figures in the areas of psychiatry, psychology, social work, social policy and mental health. They are refreshingly honest about the inadequacyof existing services, the complexity of risk assessment and the "uphill task" of changing existing professional and organisational mind-sets.

Practitioners, policy makers and managers will find this book a practical, readable and stimulating help to thinking about not only what constitutes good enough paranting but also the paradigm shift needed to ensure that mental health sees the child and child care sees the adult.'
Community Care

'This is a unique book which would make an important contributionto any learning disability, mental health or children's nursing programme. ... Written in a logical, user-friendly manner, it explores with sensitivity many ethical, moral and professional dilemmas concerning the protection and welfare of children whose parents have a learning disability or a mental health problem. ... I would... strongly recommend this book!'
Nursing Standard

'...this book ... collects together a range of information that will be useful to practitioners and managers.'
International Social Work, October 2000

'This is a unique book as it deals with two vitally important areas of service provision which I would recommend for professionals working in the field of child care and adult mental health.'
Journal of Community Nursing, October 2000
