The foundations of social work practice : a graduate text by Mark A Mattaini( Book )

33 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fourth edition of the Foundations of Social Work Practice is the best current scholarship that challenges the conventional wisdom of social work practice across all system levels individual, family, group, organization, and community. The framework for this edition offers a coherent approach to integrating four critical perspectives on practice: ecosystems, social justice and human rights, evidence-based practice, and shared power. These perspectives are interwoven throughout the text and offer a teaching strategy on how to achieve the integration of perspectives. Foundations of Social Work Practice is written at a level that adequately challenges graduate students and fosters their intellectual development from the very beginnings of their graduate experience. The editors intent is to promote the concept that although many social work practice functions can be performed effectively by paraprofessionals and bachelors-level staff, the primary function of the graduate-level social worker is not so much to simply act as to think to understand the perplexing intricacies of each clients unique dilemma and to develop interventive strategies that are based on that understanding. SPECIAL FEATURES: * Organized into two major sections: Foundation Knowledge and Foundations of Social Work Practice * Builds a bridge between social policy and social work practice * Emphasizes the use of appropriate practices especially when working with at-risk communities * Includes three appendices: NASW Code of Ethics, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and a refined set of skills exercises."--Amazon.com

Peace power for adolescents : strategies for a culture of nonviolence by Mark A Mattaini( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent school shootings are only one symptom of a greater problem--a toxic social environment that breeds isolation and rage among children. This book looks at the wide range of risk factors and indicators for violence and translates the findings into an effective prevention and intervention system. The Peace Power strategy is based on four core principles--Recognize Contributions and Successes, Act with Respect, Share Power to Build Community, and Make Peace. By design, these inexpensive and simple techniques have a strong behavioral science support. Simultaneously, the Peace Power system takes a practical approach that respects the divergent cultures and values in our society. This method recognizes that, while the coercive and threatening aspects of modern life expose children and families to dramatically increased stresses, we can find peaceful solutions to strengthen our communities. (Contains 199 references.) (Gcp)
