Critiquing Personality Disorder

A Social Perspective

By Julia Warrener

In order to work effectively with people with personality disorders, it is important that Mental Health Social Workers (MHSWs) have a clear understanding of trauma and its impact on the person. It is also important that they have good relational skills, along with the support of the team and organization. Drawing on an analysis of the similarities (and differences) in service user and MHSWs' perspectives, this book outlines the further skills, knowledge, and conditions that will help them to make a more effective contribution to the support of those with personality disorder. The book will appeal to qualified Mental Health Social Workers and those on Post-Qualifying Programs because, uniquely, it explores personality disorder from a social work perspective. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Critical Approaches to Mental Health) [Subject: Social Work, Mental Health]
