Taylor and Francis,

A vital debate in British disability studies concerns the question of how impairment can be theorised, taking place between those who claim a critical realist ontology and those who argue for a critical social ontology. Recently, this discussion on impairment issues seems to merge with the agenda of the newly emerging perspective of critical disability studies. In contrast to the recent claim of Vehmas and Watson in Disability & Society that critical disability theorists only engage in a relativistic deconstruction of impairment, as critical disability scholars the authors explore the recent work of Braidotti who addresses a difference between a deconstructive anti-humanist stance and an affirmative post-humanist turn. Inspired by our empirical research, the authors theorise the difference of impairment in the lives of people with ‘mental health problems’ that can imply, in theoretical and in practical real-life terms, both a limitation and a potential that matters (Edited publisher abstract)

This book provides an introduction to the assessment of psychological issues in the context of coaching. Coaches need to be able to recognise mental health problems in their clients, enabling them to make an informed decision about whether coaching is appropriate. This book covers legal, ethical and practical considerations guiding the reader through definition and management of more common mental health problems. The book is divided into 3 sections. Part I, Working on the Boundary, starts by exploring the distinction between normal and abnormal behaviour. In Part II, What’s Being Said?, fictional case studies are described, which cover a range of possible mental health issues from mild depression and anxiety, through to psychoses and potentially life-threatening problems. Part III, Categories of Mental Illness, guides the reader through the definition and management of the more common mental health problems. This guide to identifying mental illness may be of interest to coaches and other related professionals, whatever their level of experience.
