The demand for social workers who are knowledgeable in working with older adults is rising, and Rewarding Challenges is perfect for exposing social work students to gerontological social work and promoting basic competencies that general practitioners need. Portraying encounters between social work interns and older adults, this DVD illustrates fundamental social work knowledge, values, and skills in engagement, assessment, intervention, evaluation, and termination. Each encounter is followed by a supervisory session that underscores basic competencies in practice with older adults and provides a positive role model for students considering gerontological social work.
