This volume addresses the conscious and unconscius dynamics and systems at work in different community care contexts from the point of view of both practice and management, with the aim of improving both. It aims to bridge the gap between practitioners and policy makers, and encourage reflective practice by both. It covers the context of development of community care and fundamental concepts, practice and dynamics of care in a wide range of specific settings, how management is affected by practice and how care systems are designed. Tried and tested interventions used to enable users, staff and managers to function more effectively in community settings. This book should be of interest to medical, social and therapeutic workers practising in community care settings, and for organizational consultants.
