9780231133197: Strategies for Work with Involuntary Clients

Involuntary clients are required to see a professional, such as juveniles on probation, or are pressured to seek help, such as alcoholics threatened with the desertion of a spouse. For close to two decades, Strategies for Work with Involuntary Clients has led in its honest analysis of the involuntary transaction, suggesting the kind of effective legal and ethical intervention that can lead to more cooperative encounters, successful contracts, and less burnout on both sides of the treatment relationship. For this second edition, Ronald H. Rooney has invited experts to address recent theories and provide new information on the best practices for specific populations and settings. He also adds practical examples and questions to each chapter to better facilitate the involvement of students and readers, plus a section on motivational interviewing.

About the Author:

Ronald H. Rooney is a professor at the School of Social Work, University of Minnesota, and author of Direct Social Work Practice: Theory and Skills.

Review:

Ronald H. Rooney brilliantly weaves together an understanding of the complex ethical, legal, and practice issues that face practitioners, and he adds a deep comprehension of organizational and contextual issues such as those that relate to the oppression of clients from diverse social backgrounds. His clinical detail is varied and rich, and he adds a number of chapters by experts that detail their experience and knowledge in a broad variety of fields, including substance abuse, child welfare, domestic violence, youth work, and corrections. Truly amazing!

(Charles Garvin, author of Contemporary Group Work and coauthor of Social Work in Contemporary Society and Interpersonal Practice in Social Work)

Hooray! The much-anticipated second edition of Ronald H. Rooney's Strategies for Work with Involuntary Clients builds on the superb first edition, adding depth and breadth to a uniquely useful presentation of practice strategies for working with individuals and families. Ronald H. Rooney provides insightful guidelines for legal and ethical issues and a new chapter on the 'involuntary' practitioner. An invaluable resource for both students and professionals.

(Alex Gitterman, University of Connecticut School of Social Work)

This text focuses on dimensions of practice often missing in practice texts. Many clients come to social work services reluctantly, and engaging them so they benefit from service is a difficult task for any practitioner. Not only does this text place these issues in the foreground, it considers the ethical, legal, and practical ramifications of working with involuntary clients.

(Brett A. Seabury, University of Michigan School of Social Work)
