Abstract

Working with mentally ill individuals not only requires social workers to understand psychopathology and the etiology of mental illness, but it also requires them to have specific skills to counsel and manage service users suffering from various and often complex mental health conditions. This requires social workers to develop a range of skills to manage these clients. Central to this task is the social worker’s ability to build a solid therapeutic relationship. This would be regardless of any specific therapeutic approaches that underpin their work. This would enable social workers to be able to provide a tailored approach for the clients. This chapter adopts a reflective approach reviewing how social workers utilize a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approach in working with people with mental health conditions that includes case study vignettes.
