About this work


"Responding to the growing number of psychologically informed services for people experiencing social exclusion and, in particular, homelessness, this book gives professionals the information and understanding they need to be fully informed in their practice with this client group. It begins with theory, looking at the psychology of social exclusion and the processes that underlie it, and considers the relationship between trauma, complex needs, homelessness and social exclusion. Presenting practical interventions and case studies, the authors then describe what makes for effective psychologically-informed services in practice and client perspectives on social exclusion and recovery are also provided."--From back cover.
