Book description

Worldwide, there has been a growth in service user involvement in education and research in recent years. This handbook is the first book which identifies what is happening in different regions of the world to provide different countries and client groups with the opportunity to learn from each other.

The book is divided into five sections: Section One examines service user involvement in context exploring theoretical issues which underpin service user involvement. In Section Two we focus on the state of service user involvement in human services education and research across the globe including examples of innovative practice, but also identifying examples of where it is not happening and why. Section Three offers more detailed examination of such involvement in a wide range of professional education learning settings. Section Four focuses on the involvement of service users in research involving a wide range of service user groups and situations. Lastly, Section Five explores future challenges for education and research to ensure involvement remains meaningful.

The book includes forty-eight chapters, including seventeen case-studies, from all regions of the world, this is the first book to both highlight the subject?s methodological and theoretical issues and give practical examples in education and research for those wishing to engage in this field.

It will be of interest to all service users, scholars and students of social work, nursing, occupational therapy, and other human service subjects.
