Supporting decision-making and reducing coercion in mental health care – in conversation with Dr Piers Gooding

In this ‘in conversation with’ across time zones, I talk to Dr Piers Gooding about his work in relation to supported decision-making and the work that he has been involved in drawing together concrete evidence of steps that can be take to reduce (or prevent) coercion in mental health care.  Drawing on his experiences, we think about incremental vs ‘big bang’ approaches to reform.

Piers’ book is here, and the report on reducing coercion is here.
