9780881336917: Serving and Surviving As a Human-Service Worker

This edition of Russo's highly regarded work gives prospective human-service workers a practical, straightforward look at the realities of serving in a help-giving organization. It is written for social workers, teachers, nurses, and other help-givers--those who work the longest hours and have the most contact with clients, students, patients, and residents. Writing in an informal, conversational style, Russo weaves years of practical experience into a balanced, realistic discussion of the challenges of human-service careers, including abundant examples from newly hired workers who share the frustrations and rewards of doing their job. Highlights of the Second Edition include new chapters on community-based programs and prevention. The former touches on such current issues as deinstitutionalization, homelessness, AIDS, and outreach programs. The latter provides a positive counterpoint by discussing early intervention as well as medical and lifelong preventive strategies.
