Description : "Practical coverage of driving, day care, support groups, and respite is particularly welcome. This is a good book to have available, not just for social work faculty and students, but also for those in the health sciences, psychology, and sociology. It will be a useful resource for professionals coping with the increasing problems for family and community that an aging population and the epidemic of Alzheimer's disease bring with them....Recommended. Lower-level undergraduate through professionals/practitioners."--Choice Beyond the immediate and devastating effects dementia can have on individuals and their quality of life are the strains that are placed on the families, caregivers, and communities that support them. Social workers are in a unique position to address all these issues at the same time that they provide care for individuals with dementia. To facilitate the entrance of social workers into this area of care, Carol B. Cox has edited a volume of expert articles on the biological, psychological, and social aspects of dementia. . Readers will learn the latest assessment instruments, as well as how to distinguish between Alzheimer's and non-Alzheimer's dementias. Intervention strategies for every stage of dementia are presented. The effects of culture and diversity on the treatment of persons with dementia are examined, including examples of successful programs from several countries. The benefits and drawbacks of adult day services, community care, and residential care are discussed. Finally, a discussion of the legal, financial, and psychological stresses faced by caregivers of those with dementia rounds out this much needed text.

Description : Widely used in social work and health care education courses, Social Work in Health Settings is the most comprehensive text of its kind. It introduces social work students to a range of clients and provides an overview of many social work settings and services in the health arena. If you're a practitioner, you'll find the book useful for examining and evaluating your practice. This second edition features 18 new chapters and chapter subjects and rewritten and updated versions of the 14 chapters which were part of the first edition. As a casebook, Social Work in Health Settings provides you with an excellent opportunity for understanding particular techniques and interventions. You'll find examples from expert practitioners in a variety of health settings and a thorough integration of social work theory and practice that eliminates the need to assign other supplements for undergraduate/graduate sequences in health care. The book will also help you promote discussions of issues that arise when working in particular settings and with certain populations. Social Work in Health Settings presents a framework called “practice in context,” developed as a tool for teaching and evaluation, that addresses the three dimensions of context thought to have the most direct consequences for the relationship between social worker and client--policy, technology, and organization. The framework is applied to 32 settings (ten more than the first edition!) drawn from services to children and/or families; acute and high-technology care; rehabilitation, long-term intervention and advocacy; mental health care; and care for the frail elderly and hospice care. Social Work in Health Settings enables you, as a social work professional, to understand the context in which your work with clients occurs, in order to interpret and influence the important dimensions of your client contact. This thought-provoking volume will also encourage educators and students to understand the decisions that affect the helping relationship so that the needs of clients can be evaluated and met properly. In this era of managed care, downsizing, and cost-cutting, the approach in Social Work in Health Settings proves more salient than ever before.

Description : Written for social workers by a social worker, Mental Disorders, Medications, and Clinical Social Work discusses the etiology, epidemiology, assessment, and intervention planning for common mental disorders. Looking at disorders from an ecosystems perspective, Austrian goes beyond a linear classification approach and DSM-IV-TR categories and encourages social workers to analyze the internal and external environmental factors that contribute to a disorder's development. Austrian's discussion of effective intervention(s) for a particular client also stresses the importance of working with families in treating disorders. In addition to information on new medications, biochemical data on the causes of disease, and diagnostic tests, the revised third edition discusses therapies such as motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and dialectic.
