Mental health practice case studies

Each of these short films presents a case study of a potentially difficult mental health situation that practitioners may need to deal with as part of their practice. Topics covered include appropriate listening skills, confidentiality, drug use, professional conduct, anger, social isolation, sexual advances and stereotyping. The aim of these films is to stimulate discussion and reflection about these particular situations and the issues that arise from them.

The following group of case studies form part of the Online Assessment Workbook.
