Via my networks I have recieved this plea for authors from David Cooper:-
I wonder if I might seek your help finding three authors for a series of 6 textbooks I am editing for Radcliffe Publishing, due for publication in 2010 please? The series is: Mental health-substance use. I have yet to identify the last three authors (of 90), and it is here I hope to gain your help please. The contribution is International, selecting authorities in given areas of expertise, including Carlo DiClemente, Phil Barker, Lorne Korman, Kim Mueser, Christine Barrowclough, etc.
I am having problems identifying authors to complete these chapters:
1: Book 2 - Chapter 2: Historical policy approaches to mental health-substance. This chapter is in Book 2 - Providing and developing services in mental health-substance use - this is a theoretical based textbook. The word count is: 3000 and the deadline is short at 30 November 2009 (at the latest).
3: Book 2 - Chapter 8: Guidelines for working with mental health-substance use. This chapter is in Book 2 - Providing and developing services in mental health-substance use - this is a theoretical based textbook and this chapter needs to examine current International guidance and bring together best practice as well as develop forward thinking on approaches to this fast developing area of intervention and treatment . The word count is: 5000 and the deadline is short at 30 November 2009 (at the latest).
2: Book 6 - Chapter 2: Alcohol and mental health, in practice. This chapter is in Book 6 - Practice in mental health-substance use' - This chapter is very much practice based textbook using case studies/case scenarios as examples of 'how to.' From identification, assessment, intervention and outcome. The word count is: 4000 and the deadline is short at 30 November 2009 (at the latest).
The series as a whole is very much interactive using self-assessment exercises, reflective practice, key points, etc.
