The Manual of Psychosocial Rehabilitation is a comprehensive ready-reference for mental health practitioners
and students, providing practical advice on a wide range of interventions for psychosocial rehabilitation. It
contextualises the interventions described, provides pointers to enable the reader to explore the theory and
research, and aims to make psychosocial rehabilitation a living process rather than an abstraction.
This manual recognises the wide-ranging impact of mental illness and its ramifications on daily life. It
promotes a recovery model of psychosocial rehabilitation and aims to empower clinicians to engage
their clients in tailored rehabilitation plans. The book is divided into five key sections: Assessment Tools;
Therapeutic Skills and Interventions; Reconnecting to Community; Peer Support and Self-Help; Bringing It
This is a highly practical manual of interventions for health professionals such as nurses, occupational
therapists, psychologists and social workers, and is also a valuable resource and guide for students on
placement in settings that provide psychosocial rehabilitation.
