Family Education in Mental Illness
With current trends toward family care of individuals with major mental illness, it is now generally accepted that families need a firm knowledge base and a wide range of skills in order to cope with a mentally ill relative. Toward this end, educational programs are developing all over the country. While little attention has been given to education as a discipline nor to the contributions that educational psychology can make to more effective instruction and skill development, this book is a resource that will help professionals become more effective.
