Dealing with the progress and problems of psychiatric social work in India, Verma helps social workers clarify their new roles in contemporary mental health programs, and assess the new skills and techniques needed to meet these new challenges. Verma addresses many important issues including the discrepancy between role perception and the actual roles social workers perform, and the emerging trends and future implications for social workers in India. "There has always been a general criticism about the glaring lack of indigenous material for social work students, practitioners and educators. This book is hence a welcome addition to the libraries of social work institutes in the country." --Indian Journal of Social Science

This was a much needed book on this important subject. Psychiatry has been a taboo subject in India. Dr. Verma has scientifically dealt with the subject and given due justice to this important and upcoming field.
