A Discussion–Provoking Collection of Diverse Perspectives in Youth and Family Social Work with New Resources and Case Material

This new edition of Case Studies in Child, Adolescent, and Family Treatment contains new case examples covering the most important changes and trends in the field of social work. New coverage includes these important topics:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy for youth
  • Adolescent substance abuse
  • Treatment for conduct disorders in a residential setting
  • Developmental play groups
  • Facilitating a successful adoption
  • Prevention and intervention for bullying and peer victimization

The case study method of teaching social work practice diverges from many, more traditional textbook approaches with good reason. Social work is a hands–on field, and Case Studies in Child, Adolescent, and Family Treatment allows learners to participate in the real–world practice by presenting authentic perspectives and generating critical thought. This book is a particularly valuable take on the case study method because, instead of focusing only on the experiences of one or two practitioners, it brings practitioner narratives together with the voices of policymakers, students, parents, and academics.

Thanks to the enormous diversity of cases it includes, this book can be a perfect foundation for or addition to social work courses and field seminars at any level. And because it is aligned with the Council on Social Work Education′s 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards, students and practitioners can focus on the competencies that are most important.
