It provides a biological, psychological and social framework for understanding the causative factors underpinning the complex issues that relate to social exclusion.

Social Exclusion and the Way Out reviews the ole of stress and the processes of development and ageing, with working models and r4ferences, within a unique theoretical framework. this volume also helps to develop strategies by which individual problems can be identified and monitored within the structure of community development.

  • A review of key developmental factors leading to later life psychopathologies
  • Examples of ′best practice in the delivery of social and health care
  •  A theoretical and practical perspective of Models of Care (Department of Health, 2002), Supporting People and Community Care legislation (UK Government).
  • This vital resource is indispensable to a range of professionals across education, health, social and criminal justice sectors, or any researcher wishing to explore the concepts of meaning and belonging.
