This primary text for advanced clinical practice courses at the core of the MSW curriculum teaches students how to integrate theory and practice on multiple levels. 

 

Building on the foundation of generalist courses, this student-friendly text addresses assessment within a theoretical framework that considers the use of DSM-IV and the mental status exam; includes a walkthrough of a clinical interview and the stages of treatment; and examines models of treatment. The chapter on developing the psychosocial study includes a model that walks the student through the process.

 

Richly diverse case studies, drawn from practice experience, are integrated throughout and show how theory is applied to work with individuals, families, groups, and children and adolescents.
