Adult psychopathology : a social work perspective( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Adult Psychopathology: A Social Work Perspective was first published in 1984, this pioneering text was the first to conceptualize and organize theory and practice about the treatment of the mentally ill within their families and communities from a social work perspective. Now, in response to new developments in theory and research, as well as changes in service delivery within the field, the second edition contains updated and accessible information on how mental illnesses develop and how they can be treated within a social work framework that recognizes the importance of family, economics, and culture as well as biochemical and psychodynamic factors. Each chapter is written by the leading social work authority on that subject and includes practical, in-depth discussion of state-of-the-art technologies, treatments, and research."--Jacket

Mental health and the elderly : a social work perspective by Francis J Turner( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The demographic shift to a much older population is having a large impact on social work professionals who have traditionally been the primary caretakers of the elderly. As more people are living into advanced old age, it is becoming increasingly important to understand and treat the wide range of psychological disorders which may affect them, rather than simply attributing the disorders to senescence as was frequently done in the past." "Mental Health and the Elderly: A Social Work Perspective is a comprehensive guide to diagnosis and treatment of the range of disorders affecting the elderly. Each chapter, written by a renowned expert in the field, discusses a specific disorder from a social work perspective, integrating the biological, psychological, and social dimensions of the problem. Topics include depressive disorders, the Alzheimer's patient, anxiety states, alcohol addiction, suicide, schizophrenia, paranoia, the autistic elderly, and fears and phobias, among others." "Each chapter includes a description of the condition, a brief historical perspective, and a discussion of the latest research on the topic drawn from a variety of disciplines. Cases are integrated throughout the chapters, as is material concerning the role of family members and other loved ones in the lives of the elderly. Special attention is given to the social work role as it relates to care and the provision of services. Emphasis is also placed on how social workers can effectively collaborate with colleagues in other related professions. Finally, the book accentuates a healthy orientation for people at this life stage and the need to focus on strengths." "Mental Health and the Elderly is required reading for the health care professional working with the elderly. It is also an excellent resource for students taking courses in psychopathology, gerontology, or human growth and development."--Jacket

Canadian encyclopedia of social work( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Canadians, we are all touched by some aspect of social welfare, either as recipients, donors, or taxpayers. But despite the importance of the social network in our country, there has been no single source of information about this critical component of our society. Even professionals in the field of social work or social services have not had a comprehensive volume addressing the myriad features of this critical societal structure. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work fills this need." "Over five hundred topics important to Canadian social work are covered, written by a highly diverse group of social workers representing all aspects of the field and all areas of the country. Practitioners, policy makers, academics, social advocates, researchers, students, and administrators present a rich overview of the complexity and diversity of social work and social welfare as it exists in Canada." "The principal finding from this project upholds the long-held perception that there is a uniquely Canadian model of social work that stands as a useful model for other countries. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work is an important source of information for both Canadians and interested groups around the world."--Jacket
