Liaison mental health nursing is emerging as a significant role encompassing core skills which can be developed within a range of different settings with different client groups. This is the first book which attempts to clarify the role itself and the core skills which it requires, as well as exploring how it has developed within different acute and general settings. The contents are organised into three sections:- The theoretical foundation (Section 1)- Generic approaches and skills of the role (Section 2)- Cognitive Behavioural approaches (Section 3)Each section contains chapters contributed by practitioners working in a number of different settings and each chapter emphasises core skills while providing examples from practice of how the role can develop and innovate in different ways. Specifically, each chapter contains sections on: relevant research; assessment; therapeutic approaches; practice guidelines and suggestions for referral. The presentation will include case examples and practical suggestions for individual case management and where appropriate a section on information and help for user and carers.
