Abstract

This book represents the sharing of knowledge and experiences that is cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary and across countries. It aims bringing to the social work practitioner a wealth of understanding about situations, practices and cultures that could not possibly have been experienced first-hand about mental health. The book provides cross cultural perspectives on recovery; strengths based practice, mindfulness, disaster & mental health, community mental health and other related aspects. These contributions from across the world, from different cultures, and from vastly different experiences are a celebration of the global practice of social work. The series of chapters in this book makes a contribution to a deeper understanding of various facets of social work in mental health. The complexities elucidated here can be addressed by embracing the power of teamwork, the power of visionary leadership and the power of reflexivity. The book offers an opportunity for practitioners to explore all these in detail.
