Guide your students from the classroom to success in today's social service setting with the step-by-step practical skills found in this outstanding case management text/workbook. Summers' FUNDAMENTALS OF CASE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE: SKILLS FOR THE HUMAN SERVICES, Third Edition, focuses on what's most important for students to consider, document, and pass along within each step of the human service process. Students leave your course equipped with the basic skills and abilities to make good decisions and contribute to meaningful discussions in a professional setting. Text chapters walk through each step of the case management process--from intake through termination. This edition addresses additional diversity issues with more examples and practice scenarios. Numerous realistic exercises, drawn from the author's more than 20 years of experience and from the first-hand experiences of other active professionals, expose your students to a broad range of realistic circumstances and difficulties. Actual agency forms throughout the text/workbook give your students frequent opportunities to compile and work with information as they manage cases and prepare client files. This textbook will remain a useful reference for your students well after the classroom experience. For additional support and reference, the author's FUNDAMENTALS FOR PRACTICE WITH HIGH RISK POPULATIONS contains information on specific high risk populations, such as survivors of rape and violence, those with drug and alcohol dependence, individuals with mental illness, and more. Together, these texts empower your students to move competently into a professional setting.

Review:

"This is an outstanding case management text. The content of the chapters is student-friendly and practical. The exercises allow students to put knowledge into practice. This textbook provides the perfect balance of knowledge and practice for introductory case management students."

"It's a helpful tool to introduce and walk students through the case management process. The concepts are easy to understand and students can continue to refer back to it after the course has ended."

"Great tool that provides the guidelines for our case management outcome measure. Also covers all relevant topics students will experience in the field and provides real life cases for discussion and student role plays."

"I like that it is practice/skill based, providing students with concrete information that they can apply to practice situations rather than descriptive of case management with different target populations . . . "
