Ward, M. 2011. Exploring 'dual diagnosis' treatment motivation. PhD Thesis Canterbury Christ Church University Department of Applied Psychology
Section A reviews the clinical and risk implications of dual diagnosis along with the treatment context. The value of gathering firsthand accounts of service users to inform the planning and delivery of healthcare is touched on. The second part of the paper centres on theories of motivation and how they might be applied to help explain low rates of dual diagnosis treatment uptake and engagement. Finally, gaps in the literature are highlighted with recommendations for further research.
