The emphasis and inititative in social work is increasingly on a greater community orientation. For social workers this means an increasing amount of group work, and a completely new set of challenging problems. A clear underlying assumption of the book is that social work practice with children is a very difficult and complex undertaking. Social work in any one specific setting requires knowledge about the other major settings, or service systems, because children and families cross many systems, often in a fragmented manner. Often social workers are called upon to help children and families, negotiate the complex maze of programs and services. Essential knowledge includes the history and purpose, guiding policies, available services, and most effective intervention strategies for each specific setting. Social workers need to be familiar with the language and jargon of each system, and with the roles that various professionals fulfill in each system. The chapters include: • Introduction • Pragmatic Perspective in Social Work • Social Work in Child Welfare • Supporting Families and their Children • Working Together to Protect Children • Risks and Vulnerabilities in Social Work with Children • Protecting Children and Supporting Families • Future Trends in Social Work with Children and Families • Bibliography • Index Students and researchers working in the field of social work and child studies will find this book a useful aid.
