Advanced Practice in Human Service Agencies : Issues, Trends, and Treatment Perspectives (ISBN10: 0534348114; ISBN13: 9780534348113)
ISBN13: 978-0534348113
ISBN10: 0534348114

Summary: This valuable book addresses the practical hands-on field experience that every student in human services is required to explore. The authors go beyond providing a basic orientation to field course work to zero in on more in-depth skills that the advanced student must master, such as what models of therapy apply to different client populations. A journal-type format with an emphasis on self-awareness makes this book an especially useful tool, whether the student is i moren the classroom or out in the field in a human service agency.

  • Separate chapters on working with individuals, groups, families, communities and organizations, make this appropriate for generalist practice courses.
  • The authors devote a chapter to the increasingly important issue of diversity within the helping professions.
  • The book contains a chapter that looks at the ethical and legal issues that arise in a human service practice. Problems highlighted in scenarios give students clear-cut examples of ethical dilemmas.
  • The textbook offers clinical perspectives in HMO settings, a practice that is emerging today.
  • Written in a comfortable, easy-to-read style, the text offers very hands-on, practical material for advanced students.
  • A review of each topic is presented in the beginning of every chapter, followed by detailed discussion of effective interventions and treatment considerations.
  • Case applications and exercises are included to give some real life examples to concepts being explored in the internship or beginning practice.
  • The authors offer a unique framework, covering the various levels of care a beginning helping professional might encounter.
  • The authors, who are professors as well as practicing therapists in a managed-care facility, use the theme of self-awareness to help students develop skills they can use in their own lives and apply to practice.
  • The book, intended to be used in the field, is structured in a journal format with perforated pages, so it can become a true tool in courses away from the classroom.
  • The voice of experience in the field can be heard throughout the chapters as the authors bring their combination of teaching skills and hands-on experience to their writing.
  • This book can be shrink-wrapped with the Alle-Corliss' first textbook, Human Service Agencies: An Orientation to Fieldwork. Users of the first book wanted a continuation of its ideas but aimed toward more advanced students, with a more clinical, practice-oriented focus.

"In describing this book to a colleague, I would state that there is a very valuable text soon to be released that we would need to order. I believe this text will be a very valuable tool. I will definitely adopt this book because I believe that it includes well-written, accurate, valuable material for advanced human services students."

"This book would provide students and instructors with a knowledge base, applied practice in fieldwork, and an emphasis on diversity. It is well written, researched and structured. The writing style is professional yet comfortable to read and flows smoothly from one topic to another. . . very pleased with the seventh chapter on ethical and legal issues which now includes information on Codes of Ethics. The problem related areas/vignettes provide a concrete application of ethical dilemmas and issues which are sometimes seen as abstract to students." less
