Social Work Practice presents concise, "bottom line" information on how to interview clients. The interview is the medium through which much of social work practice takes place -- from it flow decisions about assessments and implementations and with it begins the relationship between practitioner and client, perhaps the most crucial determinant of outcome. Social Work Practice synthesizes the latest information from contemporary theory and research in social work and related fields that contribute to practitioners' competence in the social work interview. It then ties these developments to current models of working with clients and concludes with a systematic description of core interviewing skills. Discussion of each skill includes the following: definition, impact of diversity on its implementation, evidence supporting its use, challenges in its use, practice guidelines, and exercises and vignettes that help the reader to develop the skill. Each major part of the book -- interview theory and research; the interview process; and interview skills -- is carefully tied to the others so that students have a clear understanding of the pathway from concept to practice.

"As a practitioner in the field for over thirty years, I have been exposed to endless 'planning' sessions that are prescriptive to the point of being oppressive. Thistext 'gives permission' to the practitioner to allow for emergence, uncertainty, and ambiguity in the planning process. Comparative Approaches to Program Planning provides a guide for the manager, administrator, executive director, strategic planner, and CEO to embrace multiple planning strategies and the understanding of each. This is extremely worthwhile in a dynamic environment and an ever- changing landscape and worldview." —Paul D. McWhinney, ACSW, Director of Social Services City of Richmond, Richmond, Virginia "This is the book I've been waiting for. It provides not only a linear approach to program design, but gives language to the tacit knowledge many planners have of the circular nature of their work. Both linear and circular thinking are important to planning processes and now we have a resource for teaching." —Jon E. Singletary, PhD, MSW, MDiv, Baylor University, School of Social Work The first text on program planning to guide readers in selecting program planning approaches appropriate to setting, culture, and context Valuable for students and practitioners in the social work, public administration, nonprofit management, and community psychology fields, Comparative Approaches to Program Planning provides practical and creative ways to effectively conduct program planning within human service organizations. Written by leaders in the social work education community, this innovative book explores program planning as a multi-layered and complex process. It examines both a traditional linear problem-solving model as well as an alternative emergent approach to program planning, helping professionals to successfully develop and enact effective and culturally competent planning in organizations and communities.

How can social workers be more effective in collaborative work? What are the skills, knowledge and values required for collaborative practice? How does collaborative social work practice impact on the experience of service-users and carers? These questions are faced by social workers every day and interprofessional collaborative practice is high on the policy agenda for trainees and practitioners. Written primarily for social work students and practitioners, although having relevance across the wider range of stakeholders, this book explores the issues, benefits and challenges that interprofessional collaborative practice can raise. Chapter-by-chapter the book will encourage the reader to critically examine the political, legal, social and economic context of interprofessional practice. It also explores how social workers can work effectively and collaboratively with other professions while retaining their own values and identity. Key features include: - activities to illustrate the ways in which collaborative working can impact upon the experiences of service users, carers and practitioners; - discussions looking at the different people and organisations with whom social workers might work in practice; - examples of research and knowledge for practice; - a glossary to act as a useful quick reference point for the reader; - a companion website. Engaging and well-written, each chapter also includes case studies, reflective questions and links to further reading and sources of information. Interprofessional Collaboration in Social Work Practice will be essential reading for social work qualifying students and for practitioners.
