The Social Worker's Guide to Child and Adolescent Mental Health provides a comprehensive guide to working with children and young people who are experiencing mental health problems, and equips the reader with the knowledge and skills to provide the best service to these vulnerable young people.

The book covers:

-the role social work can play in child and adolescent mental health, and key ideas relating to mental health and young people

-how social work skills and knowledge can be applied to working with children and adolescents with mental health problems and how skills can be developed, as well as guidance on assessment, intervention and multi-disciplinary working

-the wider social context of legislative and policy frameworks, and the importance of considering cultural, spiritual and religious identity.

Also included are case examples, reflective activities and practical exercises to underpin theory and knowledge.

This book will be essential reading for all pre- and post-qualifying social work practitioners involved with children, adolescents and families, in particular those working in mental health settings, as well as approved mental health professionals.
