Editors: Kam-shing YIP (Hong Kong Polytechnic Univ., Hong Kong)
Book Description:
This book offers to serve as a guide for professionals in understanding and applying a strengths based perspective for Chinese clients with mental illness and to discuss the Chinese articulatiion of concepts and practice of these perspective within Chinese culture.
Ever since the emergence of medical model in explanation of mental illness, the disease model or deficit/ problem orientation became the dominant paradigm in perceiving, treating and rehabilitating persons with mental illness . The terms `mentally illí, `mental patientí serve as labels for both professionals, family caregivers and members of community to describe the burden, the needs of care and treatment for persons with mental illness. These labels also justify the establishment and implementation mental health services. Under the influences of the disease model, persons with mental illness are regarded as subjects for academic research, patients for treatment, clients for intervention, and objects for stigmatization and labeling. As a consequence, persons with mental illness are deprived of their own justification and manifestation of talents, motives, abilities, potentials, and capacities to recovery and live an independent live.
