Basic Approach

 

Mental Health in Social Work: Diagnosis and Strengths-Based Assessment,  uses a case study method that teaches students clinical assessment skills. Consistent with social work's concern with strengths and the environmental context for human behavior, Mental Health in Social Work covers strengths-based assessment and the biopsychosocial risk and resilience perspective.

  • Three strengths-based assessment case studies are found in each chapter.
  • Evidence-based treatment guidelines are presented for each disorder. 

 

What your colleagues are saying ...

 

 “The major strength and contribution of this particular workbook is the inclusion of the biopsychological risk and resilience framework for assessment. I think that this is a promising integrative tool that may allow social workers to utilize meaningful diagnostic information within our profession’s multilevel or ecosystemic perspective and strengths-based focus.”

                              Chrystal Barranti, California State University

 

“I appreciated the multicultural examples...the integration of recent literature pertaining to the prevalence and etiology of diagnoses as well as the inclusion of co-morbidity information.”

                            Laura Boisen, Augsburg College
