Working With Ethnicity Race & Culture in Mental Health
This book enables front line practitioners to understand why it is important to consider the specific needs of people from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in mental health settings.
It offers practical guidance on how practitioners can take positive steps to improve the quality of their work and their relationships with BME service users, and ultimately how to improve their outcomes. By advocating the practice of recognizing the individuality of each service user, this book provides practitioners with the tools and information they need to work fairly and effectively.
Case examples of organisations that have achieved a quality of delivery that is valued by BME people are included, along with exercises that help practitioners to make links between theory and their individual practice. It is invaluable reading for all those working on the front line in mental health.
A few hours with this book will provide more insight into the subject of race than many of the study days arranged by so-called experts… The service to our client group would improve beyond recognition if every mental health professional read this book (Nursing Standard, March 2009)
