Summary: This concise, useful guide introduces the necessary basic skills students need to effectively support and guide persons who need assistance from social services systems. A "must read" for human services workers, students, and volunteers, this book provides key information, values, and skills needed to be an effective helper. The authors cover topics such as helping persons living with HIV, working with persons with mental illness, and taking care of oneself more. Authors Cynthia Poindexter and Deborah Valentine present an eclectic approach and provide useful information for students taking an introductory course in human services or interviewing or for professional facilitators teaching groups of helpers.

--NEW! Client-centered, community based, strengths-oriented practice themes are enhanced through additional examples, vignettes, and the Think About It sections.
--NEW! New chapters on working with families (Chapter 9), groups (Chapter 10), and the revised communities chapter (11) provides students with the skills to work with all the systems sizes that they are likely to encounter in real practice.
--NEW! The new chapter on program management and supervision (Chapter 12) addresses the information that helping professionals will need as they take on managerial and supervisory tasks in their practices.
--NEW! The authors' emphasis on critical thinking and questioning stereotypes and biases in both reading and practice encourage students to formulate their own opinions and style of helping.
--NEW! In keeping with current perspectives, the discussion of culture now includes the subject of oppression.
--Case studies in each chapter illustrate the helping techniques and difficulties that may arise for the people involved in human services.
--"Think About It" sections provide an opportunity to further explore chapter topics.
--Exercises which can be assigned or done independently help students grasp the techniques presented in the text. less
