After a decade of informing students and practitioners in the field, Resiliency: An Integrated Approach to Practice, Policy, and Research, 2nd edition, updates Roberta R. Greene's seminal text on resiliency theory for a new decade. Emerging from the ecological and systems frameworks of the profession's person-in-environment approach, resiliency theory offers social workers a perspective that is empirically based, practical, and focused on personal strengths.
Illustrated with clear examples of resiliency-based practice in a variety of settings and drawing on numerous social work approaches, Resiliency equips readers with specific intervention strategies to nurture and supports clients' strengths, self-efficacy, and ability to adapt to changing circumstances, and heal.
The included CD makes the new edition of Resiliency especially applicable in social work classrooms, but students and teachers alike as well as practitioners, policymakers, and researchers will value this update, for the latest thinking regarding an important paradigm that underscores the heroic nature of human endurance and fortitude.
