Social Work and Global Mental Health Research and Practice Perspectives

by Serge (Universite Laval, Quebec,, QC, CAN) Dumont

Social Work and Global Mental Health Research and Practice Perspectives Synopsis

This book presents respected experts, researchers, and clinicians providing the latest developments in social work knowledge and research. It discusses the latest in mental health research, information on violence, trauma and resilience, and social policies. Different mental health and social work approaches from around the world are examined in detail, including holistic, ethnopsychiatric, and interventions that place emphasis on recovery, empowerment, and social inclusion. This superb selection of presentations-taken from the 4th International Conference on Social Work in Health and Mental Health held in Quebec, Canada in 2004-comprehensively examines the theme of how social work can contribute to the development of a world that values compassion and solidarity. The volume offers a unique opportunity for practitioners, researchers, and others in the field to explore respected experts' experiences and research which can spark further development of knowledge that can ultimately enrich humanity as a whole. This timely resource springs from the emerging tradition of the sharing of knowledge, an idea now deeply rooted in the international community of social workers in the areas of health and mental health. This volume is extensively referenced and includes figures and tables to clearly detail information. This book is enlightening reading for practitioners, administrators, educators, researchers, and students of social work. This book was published as a special issue of Social Work in Mental Health.
