Description : “This is an accessible text that will be a useful source for lecturers and students in the field of health studies. The material is coherently organised into three main themes: the politics of provision; setting priorities; and patients and professionals. I was particularly impressed with way in which the authors draw on theoretical insights and on the experiences of different heath care systems in their analysis.” Professor Rob Baggott, Director of the Health Policy Research Unit, De Montfort University, UK Who is responsible for the health of the nation?To what extent should the state tackle health inequalities?Is prevention better than cure?,Key Debates in Healthcare explores the answers to these and many more topical questions in healthcare. The book considers eight main debates in healthcare, ranging from the role of the state in the provision of health care to the rights of patients, and the responsibilities each of us have for our own health.

Through these debates the book will help readers explore issues such as health inequalities, health promotion and service delivery, and establish their own perspective on issues of health and society. Written as a core course book, the book includes:Theoretical perspectives: to help you understand the logic and implications of broad social and political arguments related to healthPolicy developments: to show the practical application of ideas in Britain, the United States and in other parts of the worldPerspectives of health professionals: to illustrate the impact of healthcare debates on professional practiceHealthcare scenarios: to assist you to make connections between theory, policy and practice Key Debates in Healthcare is key reading for all those training and studying to become health professionals and looking for a text to help them get to grips with the heart of healthcare provision.

Description : What can nurses do to support those receiving palliative care? How do you ensure clear communication and maintain patients’ and families’ preferences? Palliative Care Nursing is essential reading for nursing students, nurses and other health and social care professionals providing supportive and palliative care to those with advanced illness or who are towards the end of life. This third edition of the acclaimed textbook has been extensively revised and examines important research studies, key debates around care and strategies to move palliative care nursing forward. In four sections the book covers key elements of nursing practice towards the end of life: • Who is the palliative care patient? • Providing palliative nursing care • Caring around the time of death • Challenging issues in palliative care nursing Leading authors in each of these fields address contemporary issues and explore how to provide high quality person-centred palliative care, encouraging application to practice through exercises case studies. Chapters completely reworked or new for this edition include those on communication, living with uncertainty, bereavement care, the costs of caring, nurses’ decision-making and capacity, and palliative care worldwide. The clarity of evidence presented and coverage of a diverse range of topics make this the foundational textbook for all studying palliative care at pre-registration level, postgraduate level or as part of CPD study. With a foreword by last edition editor, Professor Sheila Payne, Lancaster University, UK. “I welcome this third edition of Palliative Care Nursing and congratulations to the new team who have provided us with a dynamic and innovative development of a core text for palliative nursing practice. As the largest workforce in palliative care, and given the changing face of clinical practice for nurses, including increased educational opportunity and expanding roles and responsibilities, this book is timely in its focus on critical issues which frame and scope the reality of palliative care and the nursing contribution to that discipline. The learning exercises, in particular, offer tools for educators and clinicians to reflect on practice and understand new ways of knowing in palliative care. It will be an excellent resource for nursing, both in the UK and Ireland and to the wider international audience, having drawn on the breadth of global nursing expertise to bring this book together. Philip Larkin, Professor of Clinical Nursing (Palliative Care), University College Dublin and Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services, Dublin, Ireland; President, European Association for Palliative Care “This is a book of substance that captures the current status of palliative nursing, including the values and research evidence that underpin it. The changing nature of palliative nursing as an evidence-based specialism is balanced with practical skills and insights from experts, and also considers the needs of those working with, or concerned about, the dying person’s well-being. It covers a range of challenging issues as well as drawing on the wisdom of those who actually undertake this work on a daily basis. I hope that students and practitioners from all disciplines will find this a useful resource to understand the art and craft of good palliative nursing.” Professor Daniel Kelly, Fellow of the Royal College of Nursing and Royal College of Nursing Chair of Nursing Research, Cardiff University, UK

Description : How do we learn from service user perspectives? What practical skills and approaches are needed to make care truly person-centred? Written by practitioners, academics and, more importantly, the people who use health services, this unique text examines the application of person-centred principles across a range of healthcare contexts. It will provide you with the essential skills, techniques and strategies needed to deliver person-centred care. Patient and service users should be at the heart of healthcare delivery, and this book will equip nurses and midwives by connecting the reader to the lived experience of those receiving healthcare. It examines issues across the lifespan and reveals how person-centred care can best be achieved by working in partnership. After introducing key principles and service design in chapters 1 and 2, each chapter that follows tackles a different age or disease specific area of care, including: • Maternity care • Family care including health visiting • Adolescent care • Adult critical care • Diseases including diabetes and arthritis • Care for people with long term mental health problems • Intellectual disabilities • Care of carers Putting people at the heart of healthcare is essential to effective practice, and this book interweaves real patient stories into every chapter, bringing nursing and midwifery theory to life and helping students and practitioners hone and develop their skills. An essential buy for all nurses and midwives. “This book offers an innovative, creative and fresh approach to understanding the heart of patient centred care. Its partnership approach has meant that the voices of national experts and patients are represented, and together they share their expertise and experience based insights, which has resulted in a text that illuminates the evidence base for nurses, midwives and other health care professionals. Never has there been a more significant time to focus on patient centred care and this book makes a meaningful and bold contribution to constructively expanding the concepts of patient centred care and providing an applicable approach for practitioners. This text helpfully covers the life span of individuals from a range of care settings and as such offers a unique and crisp approach. I would suggest that whether you are a student nurse or an experienced practitioner, this book would provide you with clear, informative and robust evidence to enhance the care you provide. This is a must read for students, health care professionals and academics – an excellent addition to the knowledge base.” Brian J Webster-Henderson, Professor of Nursing and University Dean of Learning and Teaching, Edinburgh Napier University, UK “Evident throughout the book is the collaboration of its contributors, providing a real sense of compassion in care. The service users’ ‘voice’ positively speaks to the reader and together with other contributors inspires a practice of care and compassion, professionally as well as personally. It is easy to read and follow and the activities encourage thinking and debate and reflective practice. The opening chapter introduces person-centeredness well, where its philosophy appears to be embedded within each chapter. It reads as supportive and developmental for practitioners.” Tracey Harding, Lecturer and Programme Lead, Doctorate in Clinical Practice, University of Southampton, UK “This excellent book offers a number of things to the reader: the theory for person-centred care; a structured approach to the development of that knowledge across the lifespan; and, most importantly, people’s experiences – these jump off the page bringing life to the theory. For me, it was the ‘voices’ that were gripping as I grappled with the issues (many of which are challenging and from which the authors did not shy away). Some of these were hard to read as I wished that the healthcare professionals in those situations had taken the time to really hear what the concerns were. The book is steeped in the realities of practice and helps to make sense of the challenges – and opportunities – that exist in healthcare practice as person-centred care continues to go to the heart of practice.” Ruth Taylor, Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean, Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, Anglia Ruskin University, UK

Description : This popular book is written by leading experts in the field and covers all the key aspects of healthcare management. Written with healthcare managers, professionals and students in mind, it provides an accessible and evidence-based guide to healthcare systems, services, organizations and management. Key areas covered include: • Structure and delivery of healthcare services in the international context, including mental health, acute care, primary care, chronic disease and integrated care • Allocating resources for healthcare: setting and managing priorities • Health technologies, research and innovation • Global health policy: governing health systems across borders • Patient and public involvement in healthcare • Healthcare governance and performance This third edition has been significantly rewritten, with 10 new contributors and a new chapter structure designed to better support learning, practical application and further study. In addition, there is a more international focus and each chapter includes new case studies giving global examples of health systems and services, new and updated learning activities to encourage application to your own organization, and a range of links to useful online resources. Healthcare Management is essential research-based reading for students, teachers and healthcare professionals involved in management, research and health policy making. “Walshe and Smith have assembled an invaluable introduction to healthcare management and health systems. With their fellow authors, they provide a comprehensive review of a range of issues related to the funding and provision of care, and how services are organised and managed. Now in its third edition, Healthcare Management has been updated and revised to meet the needs of teachers and students alike.” Professor Chris Ham, Chief Executive, The King’s Fund, UK "This book covers the main areas of knowledge which managers need, and gives tools for thinking and empirical examples relevant to current challenges. Evidence based management might not always be possible, but this book gives a way for a manager to become research-informed and therefore more effective. This third edition of the book is even more relevant internationally and improved to help readers apply the ideas to their situation.” Professor John Øvretveit, Director of Research, LIME/MMC, The Karolinska Institute, Sweden “No-one learns to be a manager in a classroom or from a book, but books that take this disclaimer as their starting point are indispensable. Walshe and Smith (and their fellow authors) invite their audience (healthcare managers, healthcare policy makers and postgraduate students, taking courses in healthcare management) to critically combine experiential learning with academic learning and to acquire knowledge from both practice and theory. By doing so, they have found the third way between the advocates of evidence-based management and their criticasters.” Dr. Jan-Kees Helderman, Associate Professor in Public Administration, Institute for Management Research, Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands

Description : This new text is an accessible and practical guide to clinical governance in healthcare, designed to help practitioners and students deliver quality care to patients and improve the patient experience at every level. Grounded in the application of clinical governance, it explains in detail what it looks like in practice. Using common examples of clinical governance challenges, this book gives real and practical insights into how individuals can contribute to clinical governance in a range of healthcare settings. Each chapter includes case studies, reflective activities, tips and real experiences to help readers apply the theory to practice, and identify areas in which they can improve the patient experience. This is key reading for all healthcare practitioners. "In this excellent new book on clinical Governance, Mary Gottwald and Gail Lansdown distil down what this complex topic encompasses. They put bones on the individual components and lead the reader easily through the topic, so that he or she ends up with a good understanding of how the system is supposed to function and their individual responsibilities as a clinician, academic, trainer or manager ... I wish that I had been able to read a book such as this when I started off. It would have saved me a lot of time and trouble getting my head around all the aspects of this vital topic. Providing a reliable, safe, high quality service is the major challenge for all of us working in health services, so this fine book is very welcome." Dr Peter Featherstone MPhil, FRCP, Lead for Clinical Governance in Acute MedicineConsultant Physician and Honorary Medical Senior Lecturer Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust "The book has been developed for pre- and post - registration students, but it will appeal to a wider audience, particularly those who want more knowledge of Governance and its antecedents. The outline of Chapters at the start helpfully leads the reader the appropriate section, and within each section the authors attempt to link clinical governance theory to practical examples. This is further emphasised by the use of reflective questions at the end of each chapter. The chapter on Clinical Audit is excellent, and is of use to anyone including medical staff in terms of how Clinical Audits should be conducted. It is an excellent, easy read journey through all aspects of Clinical Governance and its application to patient experience, safety and effective senses, ultimately quality of care." Sharon Linter, Director of Quality and Governance/ Executive Nurse, Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Description : Leadership and Change for the Health Professional will provide health professionals with the latest thinking on leadership theory and research. It highlights the issues that can block successful healthcare leadership initiatives, and explores ways of constructively engaging with the opportunities provided by change. Each chapter draws out practical lessons for effective and efficient leadership of care that is compassionate and safe. Leaders and students at all levels will be able to use this book to expand their leadership repertoire in a text that engages with many themes, including: • The basics of leadership and the idea of leadership as a "calling" • Motivating employees • Implicit leadership theory • Developing trust • Building learning organisations • Gender and equality • Planning and organising change in healthcare • Leading change The links between the theory and practice of healthcare leadership are skilfully explored with examples of research implemented in practice, and the textbook further equips your study with helpful summaries and suggestions for further reading. This is essential reading for all healthcare professionals in clinical practice as well as students studying or engaged in research on health care management and leadership. With a foreword by Thomas Garavan, Edinburgh Napier Business School, UK. "Amongst the vast number of leadership texts published every year this book stands out. It has been edited with considerable care by two highly respected scholars in the field to make it accessible to all those interested in, and practising, leadership, whether healthcare professionals or students. It is well organised and moves seamlessly to address many important questions about the nature of leadership, including important questions of ethics, gender, trust, motivation, innovation, teams, and distributed leadership. The final section focuses on leading change in healthcare, a critical element of leadership practice in today’s world. Too many leadership books ignore context. This book, however, is firmly rooted in the healthcare context, and aspires to help professionals in this sector to reflect deeply on the complexities of leading through uncertain times. Whilst each chapter stands alone, the book’s merit is in offering multiple perspectives. Curtis and Cullen have encouraged the book’s contributors to address the big debates and themes in healthcare leadership today, whilst keeping in sharp focus the practice of leadership." Sharon Turnbull, Visiting Professor, Lancaster University Management School, UK "In Leadership and Change for the Health Professional, Elizabeth Curtis and John Cullen have crafted an exceptionally timely collection of practically-based research insights. As global healthcare systems face disruptive and often uncomfortable forces for change, this book tackles complex topics that health leaders must understand. While oriented toward generative practice and creative leadership skills, Curtis and Cullen do not shy away from engaging with controversial aspects of leadership development, such as bias, gendered practice, or even clinical failure, making it a valuable resource for educators and practitioners alike. Accessible and lively, Leadership and Change for the Health Professional is a successful blend of current issues with a visionary future." Kathy Lund Dean, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Leadership & Ethics, Gustavus Adolphus College, USA "Curtis and Cullen bring together a comprehensive overview of leadership, from its historical development up to its role within the current healthcare context, presented by a variety of scholars. The particular challenges and demands faced by leaders and those who aspire to lead are discussed within and it addresses the many facets of leadership approaches. Anyone interested in the development of leadership and change will find this particularly stimulating and a valuable text for academic and students alike." Alison H James, School of Healthcare Sciences, Cardiff University, UK "This book covers many aspects of leadership, which are timely in nature and directly relevant to health professionals. The contributors are highly respected and offer different perspectives on this complex issue. We need to encourage practitioners to see themselves as leaders – this evidence-based text will serve to guide them in this quest. De-emphasising the individual leadership qualities and including those of teams makes this book stand out from others. The NHS features prominently but despite this, readers from other countries should be able to easily transfer the content to their own health services. The useful websites at the end of each chapter provide further direction for readers. This is a text that is written with a very positive stance, even though the difficulties of being a leader are not ignored. It ends with a discussion on the vision for leadership – at individual, team and organisational levels. Lots to read, absorb and you can do this a chapter at a time which is great." Professor Bridie Kent, Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery, Plymouth University, UK "This book addresses an important topic, where there is huge scope to add value. This is partly due to the scale of the NHS. The language makes the text accessible to professionals as well as academics. It is also good to see that the issue of learning organisations is addressed, as well as impact of leadership on patients." Professor John G Burgoyne, Lancaster University Management School, UK "Leadership and Change for the Health Professional is a timely and authoritative academic and professional exposition of the challenges for clinicians and healthcare managers in carrying out their management roles in our modern medical and healthcare systems. Its focus on change is both apt and relevant in the context of the dynamic development of our healthcare structures." Niamh Brennan, Michael MacCormac Professor of Management, University College Dublin

Description : This book has a radical new message for any clinician: through coaching you reduce your own stress and you get far better outcomes for patients. ‘Coaching for health’ means creating a different relationship in consultations, asking a different kind of question and giving information in a different way. It goes beyond what is usually meant by ‘patient-centred practice’. It will work with virtually any patient. When you take a coaching approach the chances are that your patients gain confidence in managing their own health, reduce the number of appointments they request, are less likely to need emergency admissions and are more likely to take their medication. Coaching is not just a technique that you switch on and off, it is a wholly different mindset. Coaching for Health explains the rationale for a coaching approach and gives pragmatic step by step help on how to do it. The authors - one an executive coach, one a doctor - write from their extensive, collective experience. Having trained many hundreds of clinicians in coaching skills, Jenny Rogers and Arti Maini have seen firsthand how transforming it can be to use in practice.

Description : In recent years, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has become an increasingly popular therapy and is now widely recommended by GPs and a range of other health professionals. Part of CBT's appeal lies in the fact that it is time-limited and cheaper than most alternatives. The editors of this book argue that in the rush to embrace CBT there has not been sufficient attention paid to the potential drawbacks of such a therapy. This book redresses the balance by taking a critical look at CBT through the lens of various standard psychotherapy approaches, considering those areas where CBT is appropriate as well as those where it might not be. Leading figures associated with particular approaches (including Jungian, Systemic, Lacanian and Rogerian practitioners) examine the role of CBT and how it fits within their approach, exploring a synthesis of the two. Responses from three leading international CBT authorities enable readers to engage with both sides of the emerging global debate about CBT, and to consider what CBT therapists and other psychotherapists might learn from one another. Critically Engaging CBT is key reading for training and practising counsellors and psychotherapists as well as other health professionals who deal with CBT and/or other psychological interventions.

Description : Health spending continues to grow faster than the economy in most OECD countries. In 2010, the OECD published a study of strategies to increase value for money in health care, in which pay for performance (P4P) was identified as an innovative tool to improve health system efficiency in several OECD countries. However, evidence that P4P increases value for money, boosts quality of processes in health care, or improves health outcomes is limited.This book explores the many questions surrounding P4P such as whether the potential power of P4P has been over-sold, or whether the disappointing results to date are more likely rooted in problems of design and implementation or inadequate monitoring and evaluation. The book also examines the supporting systems and process, in addition to incentives, that are necessary for P4P to improve provider performance and to drive and sustain improvement. The book utilises a substantial set of case studies from 12 OECD countries to shed light on P4P programs in practice.Featuring both high and middle income countries, cases from primary and acute care settings, and a range of both national and pilot programmes, each case study features: Analysis of the design and implementationdecisions, including the role of stakeholders Critical assessment of objectives versus results Examination of the of 'net' impacts, includingpositive spillover effects and unintended consequencesThe detailed analysis of these 12 case studies together with the rest of this critical text highlight the realities of P4P programs and their potential impact on the performance of health systems in a diversity of settings. As a result, this book provides critical insights into the experience to date with P4P and how this tool may be better leveraged to improve health system performance and accountability. This title is in the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies Series.

Chapters of Potter & Perry’s Fundamentals of Nursing, 6e engage students with contemporary concepts and clinical examples, designed to build clinical reasoning skills.

Description : How do we understand mental health problems in their social context? A former BMA Medical Book of the Year award winner, this book provides a sociological analysis of major areas of mental health and illness. The book considers contemporary and historical aspects of sociology, social psychiatry, policy and therapeutic law to help students develop an in-depth and critical approach to this complex subject.New developments for the fifth edition include:Brand new chapter on prisons, criminal justice and mental healthExpanded coverage of stigma, class and social networksUpdated material on the Mental Capacity Act, Mental Health Act and the Deprivation of LibertyA classic in its field, this well established textbook offers a rich and well-crafted overview of mental health and illness unrivalled by competitors and is essential reading for students and professionals studying a range of medical sociology and health-related courses. It is also highly suitable for trainee mental health workers in the fields of social work, nursing, clinical psychology and psychiatry. "Rogers and Pilgrim go from strength to strength! This fifth edition of their classic text is not only a sociology but also a psychology, a philosophy, a history and a polity. It combines rigorous scholarship with radical argument to produce incisive perspectives on the major contemporary questions concerning mental health and illness. The authors admirably balance judicious presentation of the range of available understandings with clear articulation of their own positions on key issues. This book is essential reading for everyone involved in mental health work." Christopher Dowrick, Professor of Primary Medical Care, University of Liverpool, UK "Pilgrim and Rogers have for the last twenty years given us the key text in the sociology of mental health and illness. Each edition has captured the multi-layered and ever changing landscape of theory and practice around psychiatry and mental health, providing an essential tool for teachers and researchers, and much loved by students for the dexterity in combining scope and accessibility. This latest volume, with its focus on community mental health, user movements criminal justice and the need for inter-agency working, alongside the more classical sociological critiques around social theories and social inequalities, demonstrates more than ever that sociological perspectives are crucial in the understanding and explanation of mental and emotional healthcare and practice, hence its audience extends across the related disciplines to everyone who is involved in this highly controversial and socially relevant arena." Gillian Bendelow, School of Law Politics and Sociology, University of Sussex, UK "From the classic bedrock studies to contemporary sociological perspectives on the current controversy over which scientific organizations will define diagnosis, Rogers and Pilgrim provide a comprehensive, readable and elegant overview of how social factors shape the onset and response to mental health and mental illness. Their sociological vision embraces historical, professional and socio-cultural context and processes as they shape the lives of those in the community and those who provide care; the organizations mandated to deliver services and those that have ended up becoming unsuitable substitutes; and the successful and unsuccessful efforts to improve the lives through science, challenge and law." Bernice Pescosolido, Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Indiana University, USA

Each chapter is structured to include Activities and Feedback, which fosters reflection and adult learning. This approach makes the book ideal for teaching at all levels of university. I highly recommend it." Göran Tomson, Professor of International Health Systems Research, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden "This is an excellent and accessible introduction to the politics of health policy-making by three of the world’s leading scholars on the subject. If anyone thinks that improving the health of a population is solely about getting the interventions and policy content right, this book will surely disavow them of that belief. Political dynamics matter, and the authors draw on the most up-to-date research to provide practitioners and students with clear, sensible, evidence-based guidance on how to manage these dynamics." Jeremy Shiffman, Associate Professor of Public Administration and Policy, American University, USA. "Making Health Policy is a must-read for those studying and working in global health. It provides a unique introduction to core concepts in global health policy and brings politics to the core of public health. Why do some issues get more attention than others? Why is evidence-based policy-making so difficult? How can we understand and study power in the health system? This book provides answers to these crucial questions." Devi Sridhar, James Martin Lecturer in Global Health Politics, Oxford University, UK "Having used the earlier edition of this book, I would highly recommend it. The book provides an outstanding mix of policy theories, described in clear and accessible terms, with up-to-date and engaging examples from across the world that illustrate the application of those theories. Frequent activities throughout the book provide openings for greater student engagement in the subject matter. It's a great resource for teaching." Sara Bennett, Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, USA "This book is an excellent teaching tool on policy making in the field of public health. It is very clearly structured and written, and provides a wealth of concrete examples to illustrate new concepts ... One of the key strengths is to highlight the political nature of health policy making, not presenting it as a technocratic process, but very much part of power dynamics at the local, national and global level." Chantal Blouin, Associate Director, Centre for Trade Policy and Law, Carleton University/University of Ottawa, Canada "A great introduction and reference for health policy students, offering clear and concise explication of key theories about policy-making and applied to the health sector. This book unravels the complex world of health politics and decision-making, making it comprehensible for many who have difficulty understanding the system they work in, or aspire to enter the world of health policy to make a difference." Professor Vivian Lin, School of Public Health, La Trobe University, Australia

Description : Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Mild to Moderate Depression and Anxiety provides information and support using evidence-based, low-intensity psychological treatments involving cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for mild to moderate mental illness. Its main focus is on supporting the low-intensity worker (Psychological Well-Being Practitioner) with patient self-management. The book closely mirrors the key components of assessment, therapeutic relationship, treatment of low mood, anxiety and panic, signposting and basic psychopharmacology. Written in a step-by-step approach by experienced CBT trainers, this book offers: a strong focus on the process of assessment a breakdown of the important factors necessary for an effective therapeutic relationship a clear 'how to guide for the low intensity treatment of anxiety and depression an emphasis on how to get the best out of supervision Designed as a core text for modules 1 and 2 of the Postgraduate Certificate for Low-intensity Therapy Workers (IAPT), this book is also suitable for all undergraduate and postgraduate courses that require the student to have a basic skill set for the treatment of low mood and anxiety/panic, i.e. psychology, counselling, CBT, nursing and social work. It is a useful practical companion to all who have an interest in or work directly with clients who experience common mental health problems. Colin Hughes is a BABCP accredited Psychotherapist, Registered Nurse and Lecturer at Queen's University, Belfast, UK. He has been involved in Nurse training, particularly postgraduate psychotherapy for a number of years and has a specialist interest in the field of personality disorders. Stephen Herron is a BABCP Accredited CBT Psychotherapist, working in the NHS and private practice. He is an Associate Lecturer on Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma CBT courses at Queen's University, Belfast, UK, and has been involved in CBT training for over 15 years. Dr Joanne Younge works as an Associate Specialist Old Age Psychiatrist and BABCP accredited CBT Psychotherapist in the NHS, and is an Associate Lecturer on the postgraduate diploma in CBT (BABCP accredited training course) at Queen's University, Belfast, UK. She has also devised and delivered a brief CBT skills training package for a Mental Health Community Team and has a special interest in supervision. I have been looking for a book to use as a manual for CBT, and I am glad to say that I have found it! All psychotherapists, whatever their psychological views, will find much to stimulate their thinking in this book. Its depth and scope, the variety of data explored, and the stark nature of the argument will provoke both thought and emotion. This well-written book provides coverage of a number of important issues and techniques not commonly treated in a didactic manner and specifically not covered in most introductory CBT textbooks. If you are in any way concerned with the practical way to apply CBT for anxiety or depression, you owe it to yourself to read this book. Dr Mamoun Mobayed, Consultant Psychiatrist, Director of the Program Department, Doha, Qatar Let me put this succinctly - the authors have written a very helpful book. It is essential reading for anyone who is involved in the delivery of low intensity CBT for depression and anxiety. Depression and anxiety are unfortunately rife within our society and cause significant suffering. Ultimately mental health workers are engaged in addressing and ameliorating that suffering; it is a hard job. This book goes a long way in affording support to those workers through clearly outlining cognitive and behavioural principles and techniques that are proven to help with these types of presentations. Written by highly experienced cognitive behaviour therapists and lecturers for people who are providing low-intensity interventions, the book offers step-by-explanations of evidenced and invaluable CBT approaches and techniques. Although primarily written for people with limited experience and training in CBT I believe all therapists and mental health workers, whatever their level of experience or training, will find much to inform and support them in this book. Karl Tooher, Centre Director at Northside Counselling Service Herron, Hughes and Younge have skillfully woven their passion for CBT and its ability to transform lives with a common sense and useful guide. This book combines principles, theory and practice in a thought provoking and accessible way for any practitioner working with people experiencing a mental health problem. Practitioners of all hues can enhance their core skills in working with sufferers of anxiety and depression. Lots of health professionals work with the aim of aiding clients in recovery from common mental health problems, however they can often find in real life situations that they have insufficient skills to fully help in this task. This book can provide health care workers of varying professional backgrounds with a really useful road map to do this. The authors clearly integrate their own clinical experiences with the evidence base in an engaging way. Principles, theory and practical aspects of a CBT approach are combined along with helpful suggestions for putting these into practice and integrating these new skills with how people already work. Everyone from GP's or Student nurses/AHP's to experienced mental health workers will be able to glean useful gems from this book, for example within the chapter on Assessment, the methods described could be fruitful for anyone seeking to establish a collaborative relationship and shared understanding of difficulties.
