Social work values and ethics by Frederic G Reamer( )

54 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and Japanese and held by 3,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In response to the new Code of Ethics adopted in 1997 by the National Association of Social Workers, Frederic G. Reamer has written a completely updated edition of his classic work, exploring the implications of the new code for fulfilling social work's enduring commitment to vulnerable and oppressed populations. Taking into account the expansion of the number of ethical guidelines (from 70 to 160), this second edition includes: A discussion of the conceptual foundations of each of six core values considered to be the basis of social work ethics; Additional material on confidentiality and privacy; Vignettes accompanying many of the code's guidelines, helping to explain in practical terms the reasoning behind each one; and a comprehensive overview of the issues of social work misconduct and malpractice"--Cover
Heinous crime : cases, causes, and consequences by Frederic G Reamer( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 2,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What circumstances lead someone to commit murder, rape, or acts of child molestation? Why does society have such a deep-seated wish for vengeance against perpetrators of heinous crimes? Can those found guilty of such crimes ever be rehabilitated? What are the long-term consequences of incarceration, for inmates and society? Reamer examines the psychological and social factors that lead individuals to commit reprehensible crimes, arguing that a fuller understanding of different criminal types is crucial to developing successful answers to the problem of heinous crimes.

Tangled relationships : managing boundary issues in the human services by Frederic G Reamer( )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reamer examines the ethics involving intimate and sexual relationships with clients and former clients, practitioners' self-disclosure, giving and receiving favors and gifts, bartering for services, and unavoidable and unanticipated circumstances such as social encounters and geographical proximity. Case vignettes help illustrate important points. Reamer also gives practical risk-management models to aid human service professionals in the prevention of problematic situations and the managing of dual relationships
On the parole board : reflections on crime, punishment, redemption, and justice by Frederic G Reamer( )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few people experience life inside of prison. Even fewer are charged with the formidable responsibility of deciding whether inmates should be released. In his twenty-four years on the Rhode Island Parole Board, Frederic G. Reamer has judged the fates of thousands of inmates, deciding which are ready to reenter society and which are not. It is a complicated choice that balances injury to victims and their families against an offender's capacity for transformation. With rich retellings of criminal cases--some banal, some brutal--On the Parole Board is a singular book that explains from an insider's perspective how a variety of factors play into the board's decisions: the ongoing effect on victims and their loved ones, the life histories of offenders, the circumstances of the crimes, and the powerful and often extraordinary displays of forgiveness and remorse. Pulling back the curtain on a process largely shrouded in mystery, Reamer lays bare the thorny philosophical issues of crime and justice and their staggering consequences for inmates, victims, and the public at large. Reamer and his colleagues often hope, despite encountering behavior at its worst, that criminals who have made horrible mistakes have the capacity for redemption. Yet that hope must be tempered with a realistic appraisal of risk, given the potentially grave consequences of releasing an inmate who may commit a future crime. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the complexities of the criminal justice system, the need to correct its injustices, and the challenges of those who must decide when justice has been served"--Provided by publisher
Criminal lessons : case studies and commentary on crime and justice by Frederic G Reamer( )

17 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reamer has served as a social worker at national and state prisons and a state psychiatric hospital. Here he shares what he has learned about crime and criminals, primarily drawing on more than 13,000 he has been involved with in his more than decade on the Rhode Island Parole Board. He reflects on his encounters with a very diverse group of criminals, and speculates about what leads to crime and how society can prevent and respond to it meaningfully.

Teens in crisis : how the industry serving struggling teens helps and hurts our kids by Frederic G Reamer( )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years a dizzying array of programs has emerged to meet the needs of struggling teens and their families - wilderness therapy programs, therapeutic boarding schools, alternative schools, mentoring and court diversion programs, independent living programs, and myriad day treatment and partial hospitalization services. Yet not all of these offerings employ mental health professionals or follow evidence-based treatment protocols. Some programs are licensed and accredited, but many are not, and some use techniques that are highly controversial, even abusive, resulting in injury and accidental death." "Frederic G. Reamer and Deborah H. Siegel have written the first scholarly book on this influential and controversial industry. They begin with a time line of Americans' changing attitudes toward challenging teens and the programs and schools established to handle this population. Then they summarize reputable organizations, including a selection of community-based and residential programs and schools, and provide brief descriptions of typical services." "The authors candidly discuss a number of troubling scandals and tragedies, exposing the tragic consequences of emotionally and physically abusive practices, and recommend a range of empirically sound interventions for the clinical challenges of adolescent depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, oppositional behavior, eating disorders, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. The authors conclude with a blueprint for reform and twenty "best practice" principles relating to harm prevention, program-based discipline, industry regulation, quality assurance, parental involvement, staff education, and after-care services."--Jacket

The philosophical foundations of social work by Frederic G Reamer( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surprisingly little attention has been devoted to examining basic assumptions regarding the purpose, method, and perspective on which the social work profession rests. The Philosophical Foundations of Social Work explores core philosophical issues in the field, and demonstrates their far-reaching implications for practice and research." "Although the field of social work has grown to encompass knowledge and understanding of such issues as mental illness, poverty, aging, substance abuse, and community development, "Reamer argues that the profession's philosophical foundations have gone largely unexamined. "The heart of any profession," he writes, "consists of a philosophical oriented statement of purpose and perspective." This book lays the groundwork for such a task." "Beginning with an original and succinct assessment of political philosophy - specifically, the state's role in social welfare, distributive justice, equality, and welfare rights - Reamer turns his attention to major themes such as moral philosophy, logic, epistemology, and aesthetics." "While Reamer's philosophical framework is nuanced and sophisticated, he never loses sight of the practical applications of his theories in regard to case work, group practice, family intervention, social policy, and administration. The topics raised in this provocative account will be of enduring interest to students, educators, and practitioners."--Jacket
