About this item

This accessible text/reference for students and practitioners in social work presents a four-stage model for social work practice, emphasizing the importance of the relationship between the social worker and client. The book also touches on the challenges of working with clients without enough funding, in the context of poverty and discrimination. The book begins with an overview of relationship-based practice in general and the four-stage model, then describes the broader historical, social, and political landscape affecting relationship-based practice. Later chapters show how to apply the model in various practice areas, such a child protection, youth in care, older adults, mental health services, and group care settings. Each of these chapters includes advice for working with other professionals at each stage of the model; training issues are also considered. Learning features include bullet points, reflection questions, case vignettes, and b&w process diagrams. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
