Psychological Therapies in Primary Care Service: Setting Up a Managed Service

by JoanFoster (Author), Antonia Murphy (Author)


This book introduces the case for the management of psychological therapy services in the NHS as a result of the recent and very significant changes in primary care commissioning and mental health strategy. It is practical and accessible and is written in short easy-to-access sections. This volume will not only be relevant to NHS managers and practitioners but also to other counselling organizations and clinicians, since many of the structural and clinical issues raised will be applicable in a wider context.
