This classic Family Therapy text continues to provide “a new and more comprehensive way to think about human development and the life cycle,” reflecting changes in society away from orientation toward the nuclear family, toward a more diverse and inclusive definition of “family.” This expanded view of the family includes the impact of issues at multiple levels of the human system: the individual, family households, the extended family, the community, the cultural group, and the larger society. The text features a ground-breaking integration of individual male and female development in systemic context; our increasing racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity; the emergence of men's movements and issues; the growing visibility of lesbian and gay families; and the neglected area of social class.
Designed for students who will work with families, but not necessarily continue with advanced family therapy training, AN INTRODUCTION TO FAMILY SOCIAL WORK, Fourth Edition provides a strong foundation in the concepts and skills necessary for success in the profession. The text features engaging case studies, end-of-chapter exercises, illustrations, and graphics to help students master the material.

All of us, as Canadians, are touched throughout our lives 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 covering 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 underscores the long-held perception that there is a Canadian model of social work that is unique and stands as a useful model to other countries. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work will be an important source of information, both to Canadians and to interested groups around the world. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work is available in e-book version by subscription or from university and college libraries through the following vendors: Canadian Electronic Library, Ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Netlibrary.

The mental health assessment and treatment of youngsters with physical symptoms and illnesses commonly pose unique and often complex challenges to clinicians. Clinical Manual of Pediatric Psychosomatic Medicine is the only complete text on the subject, describing an integrative approach to behavioral health problems in children and adolescents who are physically ill, have emotional illness masquerading as physical illness, and have comorbid emotional and physical conditions that complicate the management of each. It brings together information regarding consultation-liaison or psychosomatic work with children into a succinct guide that provides the practitioner with pragmatic ways of organizing the key issues that arise in psychiatric consultation with physically ill children, and it features a set of unique templates to help guide clinical assessment and management. The authors offer a practical method of mental health consultation in the medical setting and cover topics not included in standard child psychiatry and psychology texts, such as treatment adherence and organ transplantation. Overview chapters include a hands-on approach to the consultation process and pragmatic assessment guidelines. Succeeding chapters then address specific clinical situations, from delirium and mood disorders to organ transplantation and cancer. Additional chapters consider issues related to treatment and intervention: both individual and family psychotherapy, including coping strategies for family members; psychopharmacology; and techniques such as medical hypnosis to help children prepare for procedures. Among the book's other helpful features are: Templates with specific questions for both general psychiatric assessment and specific issues, such as pre-transplant assessment, treatment adherence, and somatoform disorders Intensive coverage of pediatric pain assessment and management, including the use of adjunctive psychiatric medications to treat children with chronic pain Unique considerations tailored to each topic, such as anxiety symptoms related to specific physical conditions and end-of-life strategies for cancer patients Consideration of legal and forensic issues, including consent, confidentiality, and assessment for parenting capacity An abundance of quick-reference tables -- including psychopharmacological agents used in a wide range of conditions, with indications, doses, and side effects -- and flow charts describing step-by-step approaches to pain and somatoform disorders This practical manual is useful to a wide range of professionals who work with children and adolescents in medical settings. And because psychosomatic medicine has recently received subspecialty status with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, it offers an excellent resource for board examinations.

The actions social workers take are aimed at helping people, communities, and societies attain a sense of mastery, become or remain competent, and achieve or retain a sense of well-being. Such a broad scope of practice necessitates a theoretical foundation that is anchored in the concept of human competence. This text explores the concept of competence, and shows how it is expressed in a variety of theoretical frameworks, including traditional models and emerging theoretical approaches. This approach toward human behavior focuses on mutually beneficial interactions between people and society, and emphasizes the connections between individuals and various systems that influence their lives. It enables the social worker to conduct multilevel client assessments, gaining an understanding of how clients function within their total environment, and plan a range of helpful interventions. The volume is organized around the competency-based approach to social work education, adopted by the Council on Social Work Education. Written by leading analysts in the field, Competence is essential reading for the field of social work.

Marital and Family Therapy, now in its Fourth Edition, continues its tradition as a classic resource for psychiatrists and family therapists -- trainees and practitioners alike -- by combining psychiatric and integrative family models into a single framework. The recent growth and changes in the field, especially the movement away from narrowly based schools of therapy toward an integrative approach, prompted the authors to expand and rewrite the text. The authors have included the results of 20 years of successful field testing by trainees and have supplemented the text with well-placed case vignettes and charts. The authors have further renewed the appeal of this definitive text by 1) rewriting the discussion of how new attitudes and information about gender, culture, class, and race are affecting family theory building, 2) updating their text for compatibility with DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10, 3) adding a section on treating Axis I disorders by combining family therapy with medication, 4) adding a section on the new subspecialty of family systems medicine, 5) offering the latest on family therapy effectiveness and training, and 6) discussing afresh the ethical, financial, and professional issues facing therapists today. With two new authors, up-to-date references for the advanced therapist, and suggested readings for both instructor and student, this volume will spend little time on the shelf. Psychiatrists, family therapists, social workers, nurses, family education teachers, counselors, family physicians, and family law professionals will turn to this practical reference time and time again as they seek a better understanding of the evolving field of marital and family therapy.

"This collection is a timely and excellent contribution to the study of resilience and the field of gerontology."--Anthropology and Aging Quarterly This state-of-the science, multidisciplinary Annual Review of Gerontology and Geriatrics provides a comprehensive examination of critical issues on resilience in a variety of life domains central to the well-being of older persons. It examines the role of resilience in determining adjustment and function in the domains of health, grief and bereavement, physical activity and functioning, spirituality, work, retirement, intellectual/cognitive functioning, coping with life events, care giving, and mental health interventions. The first section of the book addresses such domains of resilience as immunological function, stress and mood disorders, emotional and cognitive resilience, adjustment to cultural and environmental changes, and spirituality. Section two is concerned with practical applications of resilience. A developmental family perspective is used to examine differences in adaptation to age-related challenges. The role of resilience in geriatric rehabilitation is discussed as is adaptive coping in regard to loss and trauma. The text also explores resilience in regard to career management, retirement, and volunteerism, considers resilience as a component of health in regard to public policy, and examines exemplary public health programs and policies and the relationship of resilience to health care finance. Also addressed is resilience in caregiving as a mutually beneficial process, clinical interventions that enhance resilience, and resilience from a lifespan developmental perspective. Key Features: Synthesizes the best current research in the field, with direct practice implications Addresses resilience in regard to immunological function, emotional and cognitive resilience, and spirituality Explores the role of resilience in geriatric rehabilitation, career management and retirement, person-environ fit, and public health and policy Examines directions for future research and resilience-oriented interventions

Through a novel integration of child welfare data, policy analysis, and evidence-informed youth permanency practice, the essays in this volume show how to achieve and sustain family permanence for older children and youth in foster care. Researchers examine what is known about permanency outcomes for youth in foster care, how the existing knowledge base can be applied to improve these outcomes, and the directions that future research should take to strengthen youth permanence practice and policy. Part 1 examines child welfare data concerning reunification, adoption, and relative custody and guardianship and the implications for practice and policy. Part 2 addresses law, regulation, court reform, and resource allocation as vital components in achieving and sustaining family permanence. Contributors examine the impact of policy change created by court reform and propose new federal and state policy directions. Part 3 outlines a range of practices designed to achieve family permanence for youth in foster care: preserving families through community-based services, reunification, adoption, and custody and guardianship arrangements with relatives. As growing numbers of youth continue to "age out" of foster care without permanent families, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers have increasingly focused on developing evidence-informed policies, practices, services and supports to improve outcomes for youth. Edited by leading professionals in the field, this text recommends the most relevant and effective methods for improving family permanency outcomes for older youth in foster care.
