Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This guide has a lot of merit to it but is problematic for the UK and other markets because it continually refers to the South African experience. So a chapter will be broken up to discuss the legal context for South Africa or the current situation regarding ethical considerations pertaining to South Africa.
If all the refernces to and analysis of South African policy was omitted from this guide it would be considerably slimmer and because of this I eventually lost interest. It has a lot of relevant and important research in but I think I'd prefer to obtain an OT book for mental health that was more relateable to the UK market

The publishers say:

"Comprehensive and informative, the extensively revised fifth edition of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry and Mental Health is an accessible overview of occupational therapy in psychiatry, providing key information on a range of international models of occupational therapy as well as their practical applications.

The fifth edition includes:

• Case studies throughout to illustrate application of theory to practice

• Coverage of key concepts and issues in occupational therapy

• New material on emerging areas of practice

• Comprehensive information on assessment and treatment for children, adolescents and adults, covering key mental health conditions

Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry and Mental Health is an ideal resource for students in occupational therapy, newly qualified and experienced practitioners, and other allied health professionals seeking an up-to-date, globally relevant resource on psychiatry and mental health care."

So how does the book measure up to this? At nearly 500 pages of dense text, I'd say this was more a reference book than a book that you could read easily from cover to cover. I was also surprised to see that almost all the contributors were from South Africa - when this is intended for a global audience. I would much preferred to have seen an international range of contributors, including more from USA and UK.

Having said that, the book is comprehensive in scope, well laid out, and well referenced. I'd suggest university libraries should stock it, rather than individual students or practitioners buying their own copies.

Well this text certainly is comprehensive and would be invaluable for any OT student or new practitioner. It is separated into three parts: the theory, The various specific issues, from HIV/AIDS to community rehab, and OT for children, adolescents and adults. It is really quite a good text, giving detailed info on concepts, practice and reference material in every section.
It is a bit South African in focus but the majority of the content is universal. It is not the most engaging of reads. I know it's a text, but even so, it is heavy going...
And I have to say that the whole feeling you get when reading the book is that there is an uncrossable gulf between 'patient' and professional. I suppose, to some extent, it cannot be helped with an academic text but, to be honest, I find it unhelpful to be setting students up to feel they are different from their patients. They are not. We are not. One in four of us will, at some time in our lives, have to deal with our own mental health problems - and feeling like you are separate and different is majorly unhelpful if any kind of real recovery is to be expected. Or indeed to encourage anyone to be putting their hand up to ask for help - thus morphing from being 'one of us' to being 'one of them'...

This book offers a collection of articles grouped together, rather than a systematic educational tool. Very little is covered in much depth and being written for a South African readership, further limits its usefulness. I would suggest that this is a book for a library rather than for personal use.

I have ordered this book as research for my novel and found it extremely useful. It is not a general information book, it is published for specialists and the level is suitably high, but not academic.
Recommended for anyone working in the industry.
