Overview

Drawing upon the academic evidence available, and grounded in the reality of clinical practice, the book looks at how to assess the different issues and the interventions used in practice. The authors consider the effect of child and family development on mental health, as well as broader factors influencing mental health and well-being. Among the core issues considered are:

Definitions and consequences of mental health, illness and stigma

Child development

Legislative frameworks

Assessment skills

Therapeutic work: individual counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, family work and medication

Clinical governance and supervision

Research

Chapters include case scenarios, clinical applications and boxes highlighting the key context issues.

Nursing in Child and Adolescent Mental Health is relevant to nurses at all levels, but is especially useful to postgraduate nurses and nurses in specialist child and adolescent mental health services (SCAMHS). Other professional staff will also find it useful.
