"[This is] a great achievement for social work practice. [It] coverseverything that a practitioner needs to know in order to be effective inclinical social work practice. It is truly the A-Z of social work practice. Ipredict that the Social Workers' Desk Reference will rapidly become the bible ofsocial work practice and evidence-based practice for current and futuregenerations of social workers."--from the Foreword by Barbara W. White, Ph.D.,Dean and Centennial Professor in Leadership, University of Texas at Austin;Former President, National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Thiscomprehensive resource is the first of its kind in the field of social work.Written by leading scholars and practitioners in the field, it covers the fullspectrum of social work practice. Each chapter includes up-to-date information,practice guidelines, and treatment plans necessary for success in today'smanaged-care environment. Social work practitioners and agency administratorsare increasingly confronted with having to do more with less, and to makedecisions and provide services as quickly as possible. There is a widespreadneed for ready access to essential information about effective services andtreatment approaches--information that is both reliable and highly accessible.The Social Workers' Desk Reference meets this need for an authoritativesourcebook for social work practitioners. This compelling volume focuses on theneeds of frontline practitioners in private, non-profit, and publicsettings--including case managers, clinical social workers, supervisors, andadministrators. Each of the 146 chapters provides key tools and resources, suchas best practices, program evaluations, step-by-step treatment plans, andvalidated assessment scales.
