Cases histories are included in each chapter, and there is advice on how social workers can co-operate with families to provide suitable treatment. Topics covered include Alzheimer's disease, depressive disorders, anxiety atates, alcohol addiction, suicide, schizophrenia, paranoia, autism and phobias.
