This groundbreaking handbook explores mentoring, its potential and its relevance to health and social care fields – including the leadership needs, well-being and career progression of people working within health, social care and public sector services.


Coming Soon...


Drawing on the most current and relevant research, this pioneering volume brings together the perspectives and experience of more than sixty leading practitioners and academics in a comprehensive yet practical guide to mentoring across health and social care. It includes consideration of the contemporary context, details of relevant demonstration projects and interventions, key points and pitfalls for managers, leaders, trainers, mentors and mentees, practical examples and resources to set up new mentoring services, and current issues of relevance for mentoring – with practice pointers and opportunities for reflection throughout. The book also pays due attention to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, with coverage of spiritual and ecological issues and the mentoring needs linked to them.


Health and social care staff across all levels and disciplines, along with their professional bodies (e.g. British Psychological Society, Royal College of Nursing). Educational Establishments, trainers, directors, managers, and those who work with, lead and manage a wide range of people in many public sector settings.
