The management of the secure psychiatric services is under increasing scrutiny. The book illustrates the problems faced by the Special Hospitals, the techniques and action employed to effect major change in these large, enclosed institutions, difficulties and obstacles encountered which dominate and influenced management and clinical initiatives.
Working with Difference
The book provides essential information and analysis which exposes society's view of minorities and the influence these views may have on care professionals working in psychiatric and criminal justice systems. It suggests practical steps for improvement to ensure a more equitable and culturally sensitive service provision.
A Palette of Possibilities
The contributors aim to help clinical and professional staff at all levels in health care settings to introduce and develop the use of the arts in their own spheres of influence. They show that the arts must be an integral part of people's lives and stress that environment and the arts can affect the individual and can possibly aid recovery.
