Patients with mental health concerns who are no longer treated by specialized occupational therapy units must work with therapists who have an understanding of mental illness and how it can affect treatment. This textbook provides occupational therapists with a theoretical framework for working with clients with mental health problems. This specifically includes children and adolescents. Key concepts are linked directly to clinical application, making this an ideal source for students and practitioners.
"An important text for students...A well writen and researched must have bok for students and occupational therapy departments." Mrs Jackie QuiggLecturer, Occupational Therapy, University of Ulster., NAPOT Journal, August 2002
