Eighth Edition

Basic Approach:

 

This latest edition of Techniques and Guidelines for Social Work Practice continues to provide social work students and professionals with a one-of-a-kind resource designed to emphasize the many different techniques needed for successful practice.

 

In addition to synthesizing foundational practice materials, Techniques and Guidelines for Social Work Practice contains 151 clear and readable descriptions of practice techniques, presented in a handbook format, that provide concrete illustrations of “what to do” in practice. 

 

Techniques and guidelines are organized for use at five phases of the change process and to address both direct and indirect practice activities, thus supporting the CSWE accreditation standards to introduce the generalist perspective to both baccalaureate and foundation level master’s social work education.

 

Required for practice, field work and capstone courses, this text touches upon everything from basic helping skills to guidelines for preparing grant applications.  The content of this text is so widely applicable it makes it a valuable resource for all new professional social workers.

 

New to this Edition:

  • Added guidelines for the social worker serving people affected by the “immigrant/refugee crisis” in the U.S.
  • New information on the growing use of mediation in social work practice and animal-assisted interventions.
  • Addresses the social work role in assisting clients in parenting, as well as the new phenomenon of grandparents raising grandchildren.
  • Due to the ever-increasing expectations from managed care and other funding sources, Chapter 14 has been revised to illustrate the techniques for conducting empirical direct practice evaluation.  (This includes current illustrations based on actual student applications of the most commonly used measurement and evaluation tools.)
  • New descriptions of available practice approaches include narrative therapy and the psycho educational model
  • The growing call for “evidence-based practice” is made more understandable for students through discussion of evidence-based assessment, evidence-based intervention (i.e., best practices), and evidence-based (or empirical) evaluation.

For Instructors:   The Instructor’s Manual and Test Bank includes questions for class discussion and sample assignments for students.  Contact your local Pearson Allyn & Bacon sales representative for a copy.  Instructors can also access the authors’ Ideas for Teaching Social Work Practice, as well asmore than 40 techniques deleted from prior editions due to space restrictions at www.ablongman.com/sheafor8e.
