The recovery approach is now very much in the mental health mainstream. Since the first edition was published in 2006, there has been significant progress in our broader understanding of how people experiencing severe mental health problems can be supported in their personal recovery journeys and rehabilitation psychiatry is firmly now established as a psychiatric sub-specialty. Enabling Recovery is an up to date comprehensive overview of contemporary practice within psychiatric rehabilitation services. It offers a practical and operational guide which takes the reader logically and systematically from foundation to clinical practice to service development. The book is divided into four parts, although each chapter is self-contained and lends itself as a reference text to be dipped into. It begins by addressing key conceptual issues surrounding rehabilitation practice and describes the wide range of therapeutic treatment options available. It then reviews the key building blocks of an effective rehabilitation service, encompassing both hospital and community care.Lastly, it covers a range of special issues, including: specific disorders (such as acquired brain injury and autism spectrum disorder); the complex area of risk management; international perspectives on rehabilitation; how to expand the evidence base; and future directions in policy and practice.
Enabling Recovery is written to help all psychiatrists and will be useful for the whole multidisciplinary mental health team, plus other disciplines and medical students. The second edition has been completely revised and contains several new chapters.
