From the Back Cover:

This casebook provides students with personal and intimate glimpses into the thinking and actions of experienced practitioners working with clients on issues of substance abuse.

The contributors of this casebook combined many decades of social work experience and teaching to create an opportunity for students to study and analyze how practitioners think about practice. The authors move beyond the belief that practice involves finding “correct” interventions to solve client problems, and instead invite students to review and challenge the work of others to help them understand what informs important practice decisions with real clients in real practice settings.

Highlights

  • Chapter 1 provides an overview of the Advanced-Multi System (AMS) practice approach as an organizing tool for students.
  • Sets of discussion questions within each case allow students to demonstrate their understanding of the cases and to evaluate the process, ideas, and methods behind how and why the authors approached their case in the manner presented.
  • Casebook invites students openly to assess and explore how they would have resolved similar situations themselves using new knowledge.
