Research documents that rural elders are poorer, live in less adequate housing, and have far fewer health and service options available to them than their urban counterparts, yet there is a critical lack of current and detailed information on the problems facing rural elders and on the professional practices that serve this population. This text fills this gap by introducing readers to rural areas and their residents and discussing the issues, programs, and policies designed to meet their needs. Through a multidisciplinary lens, it examines and defines specific competencies required for successful work with older adults and their families in these communities. The text presents a research-driven, competency-based approach for the health and human service professionals who work with older rural residents. It discusses both the problems facing older adults and their families and evidence-based solutions regarding policy and best practices. Key issues examined include health and wellness, transportation, housing, long-term care, income, employment, and retirement, along with the needs of special populations (ethnic minorities, immigrants, and the LGBT population). Case examples reinforce an interdisciplinary model that addresses practice with rural elders that encompasses professional competencies, values and ethics, and the roles of a spectrum of health and human service professionals. The text also examines current policies affecting health and social services to rural elders and recommendations for policy change to build an effective health and human service workforce in rural communities. Links to Podcast interviews with scholars and respected professionals working in the field and "Spotlight" excerpts from the text reinforce information. In addition, the text provides discussion questions, PowerPoint slides, a test question bank, and suggested activities and exercises. Key Features: Fills a vacuum regarding information on health and social services for rural elders Provides current and comprehensive knowledge about issues besetting this population and programs and policies designed to meet their needs Examines and defines specific competencies required for effective health and social services Based on a research-driven, competency-based, interdisciplinary approach to policy and best practice Includes links to Podcast interviews with scholars and respected professionals in the field

The role of the approved mental health professional requires the ability to make sound and ethical decisions based on knowledge of mental health issues, psychiatry and the law. Critical thinking and analysis are integral to the role, and practitioners need to be able to balance technical knowledge with the ability to reflect on their own, and the professional, value base. This much-needed text not only covers the core themes and issues pertaining to approved mental health practice, but also encourages readers to critically reflect on what makes best practice. The book begins by examining underpinning frameworks, including law, policy, and ethics, and goes on to assess current issues and challenges such as the experience of service users, the impact of space and place, and the need for evidence based practice. Drawing on the voices and perspectives of practitioners in the field, this book not only covers what professionals need to know, but also debates responses for an occupation in times of uncertainty and change.
