This book equips readers with a sound understanding of the ethics and values that underpin all aspects of contemporary mental health care. It provides them with the skills and knowledge to demystify complex values in decision-making in order to reach outcomes which are focused on the needs of service users. Throughout the book, the authors draw on a wide range of case studies and exercises which illustrate how theory relates to practice and encourage readers to deepen their knowledge of the issues.
