Progressive social work perspectives that draw on both critical theories and postmodern thought, provide highly relevant and appropriate frameworks to inform social work practice in the mental health field. Despite this, the literature overviewed indicates that the majority of social work practice conducted in mental health settings reflects an uncritical embrace of the medical model of psychiatric illness, and therefore largely neglects social work approaches which utilize critical principles.

It recognizes the social work field’s diminished budget and increased demands and points out the critical necessity of students learning to address and manage policy and organizational issues as they develop their social work skills. This book is an aid to field instructors balancing increases in enrollment and curriculum content and decreases in placements and budgets

Widely used in social work and health care education courses, Social Work in Health Settings is the most comprehensive text of its kind. It introduces social work students to a range of clients and provides an overview of many social work settings and services in the health arena. If you're a practitioner, you'll find the book useful for examining and evaluating your practice. This second edition features 18 new chapters and chapter subjects and rewritten and updated versions of the 14 chapters which were part of the first edition. As a casebook, Social Work in Health Settings provides you with an excellent opportunity for understanding particular techniques and interventions. You'll find examples from expert practitioners in a variety of health settings and a thorough integration of social work theory and practice that eliminates the need to assign other supplements for undergraduate/graduate sequences in health care. The book will also help you promote discussions of issues that arise when working in particular settings and with certain populations. Social Work in Health Settings presents a framework called “practice in context,” developed as a tool for teaching and evaluation, that addresses the three dimensions of context thought to have the most direct consequences for the relationship between social worker and client--policy, technology, and organization. The framework is applied to 32 settings (ten more than the first edition!) drawn from services to children and/or families; acute and high-technology care; rehabilitation, long-term intervention and advocacy; mental health care; and care for the frail elderly and hospice care. Social Work in Health Settings enables you, as a social work professional, to understand the context in which your work with clients occurs, in order to interpret and influence the important dimensions of your client contact. This thought-provoking volume will also encourage educators and students to understand the decisions that affect the helping relationship so that the needs of clients can be evaluated and met properly. In this era of managed care, downsizing, and cost-cutting, the approach in Social Work in Health Settings proves more salient than ever before.

Mavegar
This book was purchased for a class I was taking. The text utilizes actual examples that social workers may face rather than being all information and useless information.

I am happy with my order. I plan to use this book for my class and I am happy with the product.
TheJonnyTest
I am unhappy with this recent purchase because the company is in the uk and that was not clearly stated when buying this book. Because of this it took an entire month for the book to arrive. Not happy. The book is nice for the price, but I would have appreciated a heads up before buying it.
Mikale
My first e-book for class. It worked out really well.
This book is full of good case studies with in depth descriptions of the settings. This is helpful to social workers who want to look at a client within their environment.
