Handbook of Rural, Remote, and very Remote Mental Health (Hardback)

£329.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This Handbook outlines in detail the features and challenges of rural and remote mental health service delivery and pragmatic considerations to address these, to ensure people in less populated areas receive an equivalent quality of service to their city-dwelling counterparts. The scope of the book includes general descriptions of the rural and remote context as well as the professional and ethical considerations involved in working in these areas. The book includes information specific to the professions that contribute to effective and efficient mental health services, as well as addressing specific areas of practice that warrant focused attention because of their importance.







In order to cover the field comprehensively, the Handbook has four sections. The first section deals with the general context of rural and remote practice including a description of the general features of the setting and the importance of attention to ethical and professional standards. The second section of the Handbook describes different ways of working in rural and remote contexts. Rural and remote contexts provide many opportunities for innovation and creativity but it is imperative that novel approaches do not compromise the quality and integrity of the service. The third section covers individual professions in detail and the fourth section focuses specifically on particular areas of practice that present challenges for rural and remote areas.







Academics will find this Handbook a valuable evidence-based resource to enhance their teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate mental health students. Practitioners will find this book an important reference guide to enrich and broaden their rural and remote experiences. They will be informed of the latest research evidence and will be provided with practical advice and strategies to promote advanced clinical practice in this challenging context.

His most recent academic roles have been Professor and Director of Flinders University's Centre for Remote Health and Charles Darwin University's Professor of Clinical Psychology in Health Equity in Alice Springs, Australia. Tim has served on national grant funding bodies as well as university Human Research Ethics Committees and teaches research methods at a postgraduate level. He has also secured research income as a Chief Investigator on competitively funded research projects. Tim is experienced in quantitative and qualitative methods as well as systematic reviews and enjoys using different research methods to answer novel, important, and difficult questions in order improve health services and health service delivery. A central focus of his work is the importance of control to health and wellbeing and recognition of internal conflict as a transdiagnostic explanation of psychological distress. He is also very interested in different cultural explanations of psychological distress and the importance of control cross-culturally. He has pioneered clinical innovations such as patient-led appointment scheduling and patient-perspective care. He has developed an efficient and effective cognitive therapy called the Method of Levels (www.methodoflevels.com.au) as well as a smartphone app called MindSurf. While working in the National Health Service in Scotland Tim led a program of practice-based research that resulted in a reduction in the waiting time to access psychological services from 15 months to less than 2 weeks using the patient-led model of appointment scheduling he had developed. He is a Fulbright Scholar who has over 150 publications including books, book chapters, and peer-reviewed publications. He also has a blog on Psychology Today called In Control which has had over 1,000,000 views where he writes about general topics related to successful and contented day to day living. Dr. Judith Gullifer is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Charles Sturt University (CSU). She is currently the Sub-Dean, Learning and Teaching in the Faculty of Arts with a focus on curriculum design and quality learning and teaching. She has coordinated undergraduate and postgraduate psychology subjects and has been involved in research supervision specifically focusing on rural and remote issues. Dr. Gullifer has a research focus on ageing in rural and remote Australia and has published in this area. In addition, Dr Gullifer is a registered psychologist with a background in professional counselling in rural and remote Australia, working with diverse populations across the lifespan. Her work has involved delivering adult education, primarily workplace training and development for medical and allied health professionals in rural and remote settings. As a registered psychologist, Dr. Gullifer is committed to the discipline's scientist practitioner model of working from evidence (peer reviewed research) to inform professional practice and work as an academic.
