In this paper we describe the contemporary importance of the recovery approach in mental health services. Recovery is one of the main service drivers. Thus far, much of the focus has been on individuals and their unique recovery journeys. Groupwork, may have a key role to play in the continued development of the recovery approach.

The issue of occupational burnout is a concern to managers as it impacts on the quality of client care. Burnout is said to comprise three elements. These are a high level of emotional exhaustion, a low sense of personal accomplishment and the development of an unfeeling, so-called depersonalised approach towards service users. In this paper, we describe two contrasting approaches that used groupwork to tackle the problem of staff stress and burnout in mental health workers. The fi rst used three...

This paper reports on client satisfaction with community mental health services. A Client Satisfaction Interview was used as one outcome measure in a randomized controlled study of clinical case management vs. standard community care. The Interview had high internal consistency reliability (Cronbach's alpha = 0.89) with very high inter-rater reliability for overall scores (r= 0.99) and good inter-rater reliability for individual items (kappa over 0.9 for 18 of 22 items). Case management clients ...

The syndrome of burnout has been the focus of much research in the caring professions. Maslach and Jackson operationally defined the syndrome as comprising high levels of emotional exhaustion, high depersonalization and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment. They argued that the syndrome could be reliably measured using the 22-item Maslach Burnout Inventory. The present authors gave this scale to 648 ward-based mental health nurses along with a range of other standardized scales. The total ...

Fifty-three mental health nurses were randomly allocated and assessed on a range of measures of the stress process. Stressors were measured by the DCL Stress scale, mediating variables by the Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale, the Pearlin Mastery scale and the Significant Others scale and stress outcomes by the General Health Questionnaire and the Maslach Burn...

The Claybury Nursing Stress Study assessed the levels of occupational stress experienced by both ward-based and community nurses. This paper presents the results obtained from a qualitative analysis of statements made by community psychiatric nurses during a questionaire based interview. Key areas identified by CPNs as relevant to stress and coping are reported and suggestions for further, qualitative research in this area are made.
