Sample text

By joining the ‘family’ in a collaborative manner, family workers build on the strengths within the family system integrating biological, psychological and social models (what we know) with the carers’ and service users experiences and responses (what the carers/service users know). The primary purpose of family work is to use a structured process to work through problems, clarify communication and help families coping with psychosis or other serious mental health problems. Family work uses stress vulnerability models to provide a theoretical framework through which people can understand how psychosis develops.

Perceived susceptibility or vulnerability; for example, propensity to illness or relapse. 2. Perceived severity; for example, a belief that a relapse would not have a negative outcome. 3. Perceived benefits; for example, a reduced susceptibility or being symptom free. 4. Barriers to adherence or negative aspects of recommended behaviour; for example, stigma, side effects, the effort required to comply with treatment or the financial cost. The utility of this HBM within family interventions is supported by research conducted by Adams and Scott (2000) in a small study of 39 service users with psychosis, looking at their adherence to medication.
