Patients in psychiatric care can behave in ways that can be alarming for staff, and difficult to respond to. The authors of this practical and imaginative book explain why patients may behave in these ways, and offer a toolkit of ways to respond effectively and kindly. With many everyday examples of how to keep the space positive and safe, and patients calm, this book could transform your working life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An overwhelming number of persons suffer from mental health problems across their life span. In this important book, the authors describe the critical issues in the psychiatric care of individuals with autism. Written by a father (who is an experienced psychologist), and his daughter (who has suffered from psychiatric disorders), it gives a detailed account of the difficulties faced by persons with autism and related disorders, especially as they transition into adulthood, and sheds light on the challenges faced both by patients and staff. I enjoyed reading the book and recommend it both to parents and caregivers of persons with autism and other developmental disabilities. -- Mohammad Ghaziuddin, MD Professor of Psychiatry, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA
