9780534514136: The Skills of Helping Individuals, Families, Groups, and Communities (with The Interactive Skills of Helping CD-ROM, Engaging and Working with the ... and InfoTrac) (Available Titles CengageNOW)

Shulman's text introduces a model for the helping process based on an 'interactional' approach, which uses a number of theories and skills to build on the client-helper relationship. By presenting the core processes and skills in the chapters on work with individuals, Shulman shows how common elements exist across stages of helping and across different populations. These processes and skills reappear in the discussions of group, family, and community work. New copies of this text are accompanied by two CD-ROMs: one that illustrates the core skills covered in the text, and another that features video excerpts of an interactive workshop conducted by Larry Shulman.

Review:

"The writing style is very engaging and lively...The text is replete with social worker-client system dialog..."

"I found the scenario (INTERACTIVE SKILLS OF HELPING) clips to be quite useful....In addition, the scenarios move student learning to a higher level of learning: application of concepts... I can imagine using the illustration as a prompt for class discussion. I also thought the debriefing sessions provided good modeling for supervision sessions....I think the workshop sessions have the potential to emphasize the concepts presented in the text and students would find the applications interesting."
