The dialogue and case studies approach will help students and newly qualified practitioners to build their confidence. Dialogues provide examples of how to interact with clients in certain situations.

Chapters devoted to different conditions, for example schizophrenia, depression and substance abuse, acknowledge the varying levels of care and intervention required. An appendix on the Mental Health Act and drugs used in psychiatry provides a practical source of reference.
