Guide students through all stages of the helping process and assist them in developing time-tested social work skills.
Social Work Skills for Beginning Direct Practice: Text, Workbook and Interactive Multimedia Case Studies, Fourth Edition, provides social work students with the social work practice knowledge and skills required for engaging in a successful helping process with clients. The integrated text, workbook, and interactive multimedia cases allow students to explore how to use social work skills in each stage of the helping process―from engagement and intake through termination.
Students learn about attending behaviors, basic interviewing skills such as lead-in responses, paraphrasing, and reflection of feelings, and more advanced skills such as confrontation and summarization. Students then learn how to apply these essential interviewing skills in order to work effectively with diverse client groups. Social work theory, policy, therapeutic approaches, and evaluation techniques are integrated throughout the book to provide the essential elements of direct social work practice. The new edition includes expanded content on cultural competency, cultural awareness, evaluation, and client termination and keeps students up-to-date with the information they need to provide thorough, effective, direct social work practice with diverse client groups.
