As a minister or pastoral worker, it is highly likely that, at some point, you will find yourself caring for people, and the families of people, with psychiatric problems. The Pastoral Care of People with Mental Health Problems provides an invaluable resource to help you provide the best care for those suffering from the most common problems: depression, Alzheimer’s disease, eating disorders, addiction to drugs or alcohol, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and anti-social personality disorder. As well as outlining the main psychiatric conditions and their treatments, author Marion Carson examines ethics and the particular issues facing pastoral workers. With a wealth of pastoral illustrations, the book offers practical advice and guidance for the care of individuals and families who find their lives turned upside down by psychiatric illness.
