Journal article

Seasonal affective disorder among primary care attenders and a community sample in Aberdeen

Authors:
EAGLES J. M., et al
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Psychiatry, 175, November 1999, pp.472-475.
Publisher:
Royal College of Psychiatrists

Patients aged 16-64 consulting their GPs in Aberdeen during January were screened with the Seasonal Pattern Assessment Questionnaire (SPAQ). SPAQs were also mailed to 600 matched patients, who had not consulted their GP during January. Surgery attenders who fulfilled SPAQ criteria for SAD were invited for interview to determine whether they met criteria for SAD in DSM-IV and the Structured Interview Guide for the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression--Seasonal Affective Disorder Version (SIGH-SAD). Of 6161 surgery attenders, 4557 (74%) completed a SPAQ; 442 (9.7%) were SPAQ cases of SAD. Rate of caseness on the SPAQ did not differ between surgery attenders and non-attenders. Of 223 interviewed SPAQ cases of SAD, 91 (41%) also fulfilled DSM-IV and SIGH-SAD criteria. It is concluded that there is a high prevalence of SAD among patients attending their GPs in January in Aberdeen; this is likely to reflect a similar rate in the community.

Exclusion and mental health: the relationship context of mental health practice

Author:
BARNES Helen
Journal article citation:
Social Work Education (The International Journal), 18(4), November 1999, pp.401-415.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis
Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

This paper will explore relationship aspects of social exclusion and consider their implications for mental health and for social work mental health practice. Current understandings of the impact of exclusionary social relations tend to focus on their implications for people's capacity to achieve need satisfaction, and thus seek to address the denial of inner and outer resources. However, a further dimension of these relations is that of their meanings for people, arising in discourses involving exclusion from relationships of respect. Evidence indicates that these meanings result in the experience of trauma, which can be shown to make its own contribution to disempowerment in the mental health context. In accordance with this, research suggests that relationships between the worker and service user which involve respect result in good mental health outcomes, and simultaneously provide a foundation for anti-discriminatory practice. The paper suggests that social work education in respect of these issues may be approached using the broad framework of radical empowerment theory, which relates discriminatory social relations to societal discourses. Within this framework, the paper explores particular educational strategies in respect of the trauma-related aspects of exclusion.

"Whatever you say, say something": the education, training and practice of mental health social workers in Northern Ireland

Authors:
CAMPBELL Jim, HEALEY Arlene
Journal article citation:
Social Work Education (The International Journal), 18(4), November 1999, pp.389-400.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis
Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

This article describes and analyses a range of sometimes contradictory factors which have shaped the education, training an practice of mental health social workers in Northern Ireland. It begins with two accounts of the authors' personal and professional experiences, which reveal tensions in the social work role and the influence of the political conflict on judgement-making. It is argued that a critical analysis of the State in Northern Ireland helps to explain high standards of social work education and training, but also the reluctance by social workers to deal with issues associated with 'the Troubles' (the Troubles is a term used to describe the conflict in Northern Ireland). Nonetheless, the article concludes with an optimistic appraisal of current and future developments in the education, training and practice of mental health social workers, particularly in the context of a rapidly changing political and social environment.
