Description : First published in 1974, Social Work Treatment remains the most popular and trusted compendium of theories available to social work students and practitioners. It explores the full range of theoretical approaches that drive social work treatment and knowledge development, from psychoanalysis to crisis intervention. A treasure trove of practice knowledge, the text equips professionals with a broad array of theoretical approaches, each of which shine a spotlight on a different aspect of the human condition. Emphasizing the importance of a broad-based theoretical approach to practice, it helps readers avoid the pitfalls of becoming overly identified with a narrow focus that limits their understanding of clients and their contexts. This sweeping overview of the field untangles the increasingly complex problems, ideologies, and value sets that define contemporary social work practice. The result is an essential A-to-Z reference that charts the full range of theoretical approaches available to social workers, regardless of their setting or specialty.
Description : "Written by leading practitioners and educators in the field, Social Work Treatment: Interlocking Theoretical Approaches, Fourth Edition is the standard text on theories of social work and a trusted reference book for social work practitioners. In this updated edition, Francis Turner introduces exciting new theoretical systems that have gained importance since the 1980s, including Aboriginal theory, Narrative, Hypnosis, Constructivism, and Empowerment theory. Twenty chapters from the previous edition have been completely revised and expanded, to reflect the influence of new ideas and clinical experience in social work practice. An exceptionally strong group of distinguished contributors to past editions and writers new to this volume together examine the full range of therapeutic approaches - including psychoanalysis, ego psychology, cognitive, crisis intervention, client-centered theory, feminist theory, meditation, transactional analysis, systems theory, task-centered social work, and neurolinguistics." "Social Work Treatment makes the range of theories upon which current practice is built fully available, providing professionals with ready access to the theoretical diversity and richness that is the mark of contemporary social work practice. It enables social work students at all levels - bachelor, masters and doctoral - to learn and integrate ongoing theoretical developments in the field, which ultimately ensures a client's optimum service."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Description : The growing need for time-limited treatment, propelled by the widening influence of managed care in the mental health field, has produced a renewed focus on short-term therapy. But, until now, there has not been an integrated framework designed for the short-term intervention problems and diverse populations that social workers encounter. In Short-Term Treatment and Social Work Practice: An Integrative Perspective, Eda G. Goldstein and Maryellen Noonan take the best of theories that social workers have relied on for decades, including ego psychology, other psychodynamic and psychosocial frameworks, and the cognitive-behavioral approach, to create a new short-term practice model for social workers. Short-Term Treatment and Social Work Practice introduces the authors' integrative short-term treatment (ISTT), and demonstrates in detail each aspect of the approach. Their book is replete with case examples that illustrate ISTT's principles and techniques and their use in a variety of situations -- including crisis intervention, family- and group-oriented therapy, treatment of clients with emotional disorders, and treatment of nonvoluntary and hard-to-reach clients. As the first social work textbook describing an integrated framework for short-term treatment and practice, Short-Term Treatment and Social Work Practice fills a void the mental health field. Offering a comprehensive, practical, in-depth discussion, this book promises to become a vital new resource for students and practitioners alike.

Description : Although a few textbooks have been written about working with young children in practice settings, until now none has provided the theoretical framework and concrete help necessary for working with children from the first years through adolescence. In response to this pressing need, Dr. Theresa Aiello of New York University has written Child and Adolescent Treatment for Social Work Practice: A Relational Perspective for Beginning Clinicians. Infused with authority, wisdom, and caring that have resulted from twenty-five years of agency, community, and clinical practice, consultation, and classroom teaching, Dr. Aiello introduces and covers comprehensively all the major therapeutic issues and treatment modalities, including play, family, and group therapy.
Description : An excellent introductory text for the beginning social work student. Dr. Aiello's unique style organizes and categorizes well what can be an overwhelming bombardment in disorganized clinical studies. Highly readable, useful and comprehensive.
