- Customer Reviews:
"Assertive outreach services have provided an overdue milieu for the development and creative delivery of psychological approaches to meeting the needs of people who experience severe and enduring mental distress. Caroline Cupitt and her colleagues have reflected upon their extensive experience of assertive outreach to capture the broad impact of these approaches from a range of stakeholder perspectives, whilst drawing upon a spectrum of psychological/therapeutic orientations. Attention is appropriately focussed upon the influence of psychological variables during a service user's journey from engagement and formulation, through to therapy and outcome/participation.
This book should be read by all assertive outreach practitioners, and by those practitioners in other settings/services who wish to use psychological ideas to inform their work with this client group." - Dr Mark Hayward, Clinical Psychologist, University of Surrey
