Reviews and Endorsements

‘Sue McNab and Karen Partridge are to be congratulated for assembling this book about creative positions in adult mental health. Each contribution uniquely brings alive in vivid and moving ways the importance of this book, demonstrating how making and taking creative positions can open up multiple opportunities to make a difference that is practically relevant for all those involved in adult mental health. This is one of those books that may well transcend professional and service boundaries and be on the reading lists of all disciplines and be a source of encouragement to people using professional services.’
— John B. Burnham, systemic family psychotherapist, and author of Family Therapy: First Steps Towards a Systemic Approach

‘This collection is from a wonderful array of multi-cultural contributors who shape and form the many systemic therapeutic possibilities and innovations in the context of international mental health services. Such diversity is to be celebrated, as the main focus of the work is in the public services. The hope, coupled with the artistic and ethical brushstrokes outlined throughout, is indeed heartening in a time of manufactured austerity with its designed cut-backs, contraction, and the predominance of diagnosis with “results driven” practices at the expense of creative and effective treatments. Thank goodness for the bravery of this book, its editors, and its writers in their creative yet critical positionings, and for those vibrant (and sometimes rightly angry) marginal voices.’
— Imelda McCarthy, PhD, systemic therapist, supervisor, writer, and presenter
