Praise for HANDBOOK of HEALTH SOCIAL WORK SECOND EDITION

"Handbook of Health Social Work, Second Edition is a crucial addition for seasoned practitioners' libraries, as well as an essential foundation for fledgling social workers ready to enter health as a practice and research area."
–From the Foreword by Suzanne Heurtin-Roberts, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

"The book's strengths include the high quality of writing and the expertise of its contributors. It covers the field of health social work in significant depth and is sure to leave readers well informed."
–Mary Sormanti, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor of Professional Practice, Columbia University School of Social Work

"Quite simply, this is the definitive volume for health and social work. In this second edition, Gehlert and Browne and their expert contributors have confidently managed to keep pace with current theory and empirical research across a wide range of subject matter that will be of interest to practitioners, educators, and researchers."
–Michael Vaughn, PhD, Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, School of Public Health, and Department of Public Policy Studies, Saint Louis University

Thoroughly revised and updated, the only comprehensive handbook of its kind covering the diverse field of health social work

Now in its Second Edition, Handbook of Health Social Work provides a comprehensive and evidence-based overview of contemporary social work practice in health care. Written from a wellness perspective, the chapters cover practice and research areas ranging from chronic disorders to infectious disease, from physical to mental disorders, and all areas in between.

An excellent resource preparing social workers for the present and future challenges of practice in the field of health care, the Handbook of Health Social Work, Second Edition features discussion on:

  • New trends in social work and health care, including genetics, transdisciplinary care, as well as national and state changes in policy
  • Health social work and children
  • The wide array of roles performed by social workers in health-care settings
  • Ethical issues and decision making in a variety of arenas
  • Understanding of community factors in health social work

Edited by two respected leaders in the field of health social work, this second edition includes contributions from a diverse team of notable experts, researchers, and scholars addressing multiple theoretical foundations, models, issues, and dilemmas for the social worker in health care. The resulting resource offers both a foundation for social work practice in health care and a guide for strategy, policy, and program development in proactive and actionable terms.

"The Handbook of Health Social Work, 2nd Edition, is a crucial addition for seasoned practitioners' libraries, as well as an essential foundation for fledgling social workers ready to enter health as a practice and research area. The handbook covers practice and research areas ranging from chronic disorders to infectious disease, from physical to mental disorders, and all the grey areas in between. At a time of great change in the United States relative to facilitating the production of better health for populations and individuals, any social worker engaged in this area would be well-advised to have this outstanding resource at hand." ?From the Foreword by SUZANNE HEURTIN-ROBERTS, US DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES "I'm quite impressed by the comprehensive nature of this revision. It's the enduring kind of text that serves an immediate purpose for social work instruction while also providing a reference for future practice. This is a book that you'll want to keep on your shelf." ?Kevin Lindamood, Vice President for External Affairs at Health Care for the Homeless, Adjunct Professor of health policy at the University of Maryland SSW "The major strength is the organization and comprehensive content of the book. This is a book that can serve as a reference book in any social worker's library, regardless of whether they are practicing in a healthcare setting. There are no other books on this topic that are as comprehensive in scope as the Handbook of Health Social Work, Second Edition." ?Deborah Collinsworth, LAPSW, NSW-C, Director of Nephrology Social Work Services, Dialysis Clinics, Inc. - West Tennessee "The book's strengths include the high quality of writing and the expertise of its contributors. It covers the field of health social work in significant depth and is sure to leave readers well informed." ?Mary Sormanti, Ph.D., MSW, Associate Professor of Professional Practice, Columbia University School of Social Work "Quite simply, this is the definitive volume for Health and Social Work. The first edition was well-executed, well-written and comprehensive. In this second edition, Gehlert and Browne and their expert contributors have confidently managed to keep pace with current theory and empirical research across a wide range of subject matter that will be of interest to practitioners, educators, and researchers." ?Michael Vaughn, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, School of Public Health, and Department of Public Policy Studies, Saint Louis University "Sarah Gehlert and Teri Browne have thoughtfully covered the topics. The readers of this book will be empowered to deal with the daily challenges. It's simple but far reaching, a rich knowledge bank of social workers' interventions, and will benefit even policy makers in planning strategies to improve patients' quality of life." ?Sujata Mohan Rajapurkar, Ph.D., Medical Social Worker & Transplant Co-ordinator, Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital, Gujarat, India
