Summary

Equip your students with the fundamental helping skills, and more important, the ability to transfer those skills to actual real-world situations. In DEVELOPING HELPING SKILLS: A STEP BY STEP APPROACH, the authors' unique multilayered teaching-learning system integrates reading, discussion, observation and visualization, practice, and evaluation. Students first read about professional practice and the skills required to work effectively with clients. Students then think and write about the ideas and concepts presented in the text by completing homework exercises following each new concept. Next, students watch and discuss the accompanying DVD that is seamlessly integrated with the text for a demonstration of how to use the skills with an individual, family, or group. Students learn how to think like professionals with the text's modified case-based method that introduces a continuing case, one section at a time, throughout the chapters. Additional cases on the text's website give you, the instructor, the flexibility to extend assignments. Finally, exercises with specific directions for role-playing the client, practitioner, and peer supervisor followed by a simple evaluation tool completed by the peer supervisor and practitioner promote practice and evaluation.

Unlike any other text in the market, the creative blend of learning methods and clear presentation of topics in the textbook and integrated DVD help even beginning students think like practitioners and appropriately apply foundational skills to generalist practice with individuals, families, and groups, including entire communities and organizations.
