Therapeutic interventions have been taught and well evaluated in community settings for many years but this has not been the case for acute care. This practical book remedies this, outlining how to efficiently and effectively use therapeutic interventions in acute mental healthcare settings within a recovery-focused framework. It focuses on helping those with severe and enduring mental health illnesses, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and:
Offers research-based strategies for therapeutic interventions and ward management in acute mental healthcare.

Covers, amongst other issues, evidence-based assessment, brief interventions with psychosis such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, medication management, co-morbidities, the stress vulnerability model, family interventions, and assessment, intervention and evaluation of the commonly encountered problems of depression, self harming and suicide.

Discusses aids and barriers to the use of therapeutic interventions in acute inpatient settings.

Includes case studies, sample care plans, activities, learning outcome summaries and further reading.

Designed for service users, carers, mental health nurses and nursing students, this text is particularly suitable for those learning about acute mental health problems and therapeutic interventions.
