Topics new to the third edition include:? Trauma and psychosocial support? The new discourses in mental health of recovery, spirituality and well-being? The mental health of refugees? Specific developments in low-income countries, including Asia and Africa This fully revised, expanded and updated edition of a seminal text offers students and practitioners alike a comprehensive and reliable study of both western and non-western psychiatry and mental health practices.
