Presenting practical information, emerging ideas and the findings of practitioners, Using Time, Not Doing Time is written to assist clinical practitioners with this highly challenging area of health care provision. Contributions are included from psychiatrists and educationalists, as well as psychologists and nursing staff, who are playing an increasingly important role in the delivery of treatment in forensic mental health settings.
The growing multidisciplinary nature of practice in this field means that practitioners from many professions can benefit from this book, including nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, day–care and therapeutic staff, as well as prison officers working within the criminal justice system.
