Families, Carers and Professionals by Grainne Smith
Book DescriptionThe lack of practical information available to the families of vulnerable individuals - and sometimes a similar lack of resources for the professionals who deal with them - can lead to frustration and in some cases tragedy. In this practical guide for anyone involved in caring for patients with challenging behaviour, Grainne Smith (author of the bestselling Anorexia and Bulimia in the Family) champions the importance of teamwork so that carers, both formal and informal, can learn to collaborate in treatment approaches with professionals. Drawing on anonymous case studies as well as recent research and experience, this unique book provides an array of practical tools and templates to aid the development of consistent, effective all-round care for vulnerable individuals.
