MetadataShow full item record
We both use ideas from community psychology to inform our work in the very different settings of public health, adult mental health and rehabilitation services.

This is not only expensive but also involves conceding power and control, anathema to corporations and governments' (Albee & Fryer, 2003, p.73). © The British Psychological Society 2005.
