Dual Diagnosis: Practice in Context

5th October 2009

Dual Diagnosis: Practice in Context is a practical evidence–based guide for practitioners working in multi–disciplinary mental health and substance misuse service settings. 

Dual Diagnosis

Divided into three sections, this comprehensive and international text first explores the contemporary contextual issues surrounding the subject area.  It then goes on to review dual diagnosis in some of the ‘special’ populations (including people diagnosed with personality disorders, women, young people, and older adults) and contemporary issues (e.g. crystal methamphetamine and mental health).

Part three reviews the development of international service responses to dual diagnosis and discusses the development and commissioning of service models, research and practice development. The text concludes with a chapter outlining priorities for the development of interventions, service approaches, research and education.

Key features include:

  • A authoritative  in–depth review of both theoretical, clinical and policy issues within a single text
  • Draws together a range of established contributors from a variety of disciplines, including mental health nurses, occupational therapists, social workers and psychiatrists
  • International in focus, with contributors from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia
