Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

This text identifies factors that influence children and adolescents and indicates how professionals can help young people as clients in a variety of settings.

 

The strengths of the text include a pragmatic focus on both children and adolescents, a broad conception of practice, an emphasis on assessment, the use of historical, organizational, and developmental perspectives, and a major social problems focus. The text is divided into three parts to identify the context of social work with children and adolescents, examine the helping process, and discuss applications of that process.

Book News Annotation:

Focusing on the pragmatic concerns of the social workers who work with young people, this book describes the context of their practice, the process of direct social work practice, and applications of the helping process. Chapters focus on policy issues, cultural issues, social systems and family roles, assessments, theoretical and strategic perspectives, agency and organizational systems, the school setting, mental health agencies, and child welfare agencies. Rose and Fatout are affiliated with Louisiana State University.
