Clinical Social Work
This new edition of Helen Northen's classic text has been considerably expanded to update its coverage of the biological, psychological, and sociocultural knowledge necessary for effective social work practice. Sill unmatched as a comprehensive guide to contemporary clinical social work, this classical work now features five new chapters addressing the most important issues in the field.
The second edition of Clinical Social Work: Knowledge and Skills takes into account the diverse populations social workers encounter age, race, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation are all considered. Northen also discusses contemporary social problems, such as AIDS, homelessness, and family violence.
Clinical Social Work: Knowledge and Skills covers the theoretical knowledge base every social worker needs to know and lucidly demonstrates how this knowledge can be applied with sensitivity and competence among the diverse groups social workers see at the turn of the millennium.
