Working with abused children by Celia Doyle( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What do abused children feel about their situation? What are the longer-term effects of abuse? How can abused children best be helped? This book provides some insights into these and similar questions by approaching child protection work from the child's perspective. It looks at how abused children can become emotionally entrapped and, by drawing upon studies of other victims such as hostages and concentration-camp prisoners, it throws light on the complex reactions of child victims to their persecutors. A glimpse of the world of abused children is also provided through five accounts given by adults who were subjected to wide-ranging mistreatment during their earliest years. Issues for abused children who experience additional discrimination, such as those with disabilities, or black children in a mainly white society, are identified and explored." "The main focus of the book is on direct work with children. Practical suggestions are given throughout for helping abused children, whether through individual, family or group work. The reader will find guidance not only on preparation and the general principles of good practice but also concrete suggestions for materials and activities." "This book should be of considerable value to all professionals dealing with cases of child abuse. It is, however, written particularly for those practitioners whose remit is to help abused children but who have to work with limited availability of time, training and material resources."--BOOK JACKET

Social work with older people by Mo Ray( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Older people provide a significant challenge and opportunity for social work. As a result of broad demographic trends and changes in the welfare state and the role of the family, older people have moved from being a marginal concern to one of central importance in the profession. Such changes have highlighted current professional debates about the identity, status, direction and role of social work with older people." "This new edition of a social work classic is not so much a revision as a complete overhaul and rewrite. The focus remains on the distinctiveness of the social work role and on practice skills. However, social work's multi-agency, multidisciplinary setting is fully recognised throughout and proper emphasis is given to the theoretical, legislative, policy and organisational contexts."--Jacket

Practice learning and teaching by Steven Shardlow( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new textbook attends to both students' and practice teachers' needs in its conception of learning and teaching as closely knit activities that can be enhanced by a greater degree of partnership between teachers and their students. Rooted in the belief that practice learning must be firmly grounded in principles derived from educational, social and psychological theories about how people learn, it proposes a distinctive model for the promotion of learning on placement that, while flexible in its methodology, recognises the need for a structured curriculum and systematic and clear assessment procedures for successful learning outcomes." "Theoretical principles are illustrated by examples from practice to make this a lucid and coherent account of one of the key strands in social work education."--Jacket
